Edward Kenway was a pirate with no connections to the Assassins or the Templars. Using the stolen uniform of an Assassin, he pretends to be one for the sake of a reward from the Templars and didn't know what he was getting himself into.

Protagonist X, with no connections to the Assassins or the Templars. Using the stolen DNA of an Assassin, he pretends to be one in the animus for a paycheck from the Templars and didn't know what he was getting himself into.

---

Edward, through connections with a Sage, comes in contact with the Assassins several times.

Protagonist X, through connections with a Sage, comes in contact with the Assassins several times.

---

Edward kills the Sage and joins the Assassins.

Protagonist X witnesses the death of the Sage, and (presumably) joins the Assassins.

This is too much to just be coincidence, isn't it?

Darby did say the modern story would be kinda simular to Edward's.

And while Edward is a pirate doing XVIII century piracy in a time period called the Golden Age of piracy, modern main character is doing some hacking in this modern times when digital piracy is at its highest point(so far), the golden age of digital piracy.
