Edward: So what’ll you do with your Share of the Gold we take from Governor Torres? Return to Africa? Prince among Men?
Adéwalé: I cannot return to a Place I have never been. I was born in Trinidad, a Slave from my first Breath.
Edward: Ah. But wouldn’t you feel… I don’t know… More welcome there?
Adéwalé: As you might feel more welcome in Paris?
Edward: Fair Point.
Adéwalé: With this Skin and this Voice, where can I go in the World and feel at Ease? This Country here is my best Chance. This Country called Jackdaw, where I know the Names of all Citizens, and they know Mine, and we work together. Not always out of Love, but to keep our Country afloat.
Edward: I think I understand ye. Let’s take her, then. For the Citizens of Jackdaw!

Adéwalé: I served with your father, Haytham. He would be ashamed to see what you have become.
Haytham: Really? I wasn’t aware my father had a sense of shame.
Adéwalé: Do not speak ill of your father, boy! If you become half the man he was, it will be a blessing.
Haytham: Blessing or curse, I am my own man.
“The love I felt for Father constantly threatened to engulf me with its sheer magnitude; I didn’t just love him, I idolized him. At times it was as if the two of us shared a knowledge that was secret from the rest of the world.” - Haytham Kenway, December 8, 1735 (Assassin’s Creed Forsaken)
(I could probably find several more of these instances if I wasn’t so animus about this book.)
