Prince of the sea. Heir to the throne.
Art by Raphael Lacoste - Assassin's Creed: Black Flag
Young Prince Edward was a happy boy living in his father's castle, having epic fake duels with the head cook's daughter, Giselle. But all of that changed when the castle is attacked and his father and mother are murdered. Edward manages to escape, but to the rest of the world, he died in the attack with his family.
Now, 20 years later, Edward has been living on the high seas as the first mate on a pirate ship, pillaging and plundering with his crew of renegade misfits. That is until one night, while relaxing in a tavern, he bumps into his old childhood friend, Giselle. And she is not happy that he's not only been alive this whole time, but living as a criminal while the kingdom falls into turmoil.
Now she must convince him to give up his carefree life on the sea and take back the throne that is rightfully his.
