~ James Wardrop's last words

James Wardrop (1705-1754) was a merchant, politician, and Templar during the Seven Years' War. He was the one to succeed Lawrence Washington, as Grand master of the Templar order, and the true main antagonist of the first two sequences of Assassins Creed: Rouge.

Biography

James Wardrop was born to a family of Templars in 1705. Following in his father's footsteps, he was brought into the Templar order in 1720. His job in the order was to secure land and wealth, and slowly and surely build the foundation for the fledgling Colonial Rite.

39 years later in 1744, Wardrop built a trade network for the Order that ran from the Colonies to the West Indies. By 1750, he worked with Christopher Gist in order to acquire North American land for the Templars. This was found out and reported by the Wolastoqiyik assassin, Kesegowaase, who told every Native tribe about Wardrop's intentions, and how he evicted many natives from their ancestral lands in the process. The Assassin Brotherhood held proof that he was the one responsible for most massacres.

Wardrop Sought to make the colonies stay loyal to Great Britain, but wasn't above using his bureaucratic position to acquire profits for himself. When his position denied him to achieve his goals, he used his connections to change it. Gist also claimed that Wardrop "Could not hold his liquor," and that he ran into trouble getting along with fellow Templar, Jack Weeks.

Upon the death of Washington and Smith, Wardrop eventually rose to the rank of Grand Master. Wardrop was present in Albany, during its congress. afraid for his life after Smith had been assassinated, and the box being stolen from him, Wardrop hid in Fort Fredrick. During the meeting, fellow Templar William Johnson was about to give the Box and Manuscript to Benjamin Franklin. Wardrop, however, refused, claiming that the risks in doing so were too high.

When Shay retrieved the Manuscript, insisting that in doing so, he was keeping the people free from the Templars' control.
