Trivia
Before Edward's captaincy, his ship was called El Dorado and sailed in the Spanish Treasure Fleet. He then rechristened it Jackdaw, after a small bird of the same name.

In your cubicle books can be found such as "Assassin's Creed: The Fall" and "Assassin's Creed III: Forsaken". These are real books by Oliver Browden that tell the Assassin's story in greater detail.

During the fourth present day sequence, when the employee gets out of the Animus, a message from Melanie Lemay informs the player that Olivier Garneau had a meeting in Chicago that he never attended. In one mission of 2014's "Watch_Dogs" protagonist Aiden Pearce is hired to kill Olivier Garneau, which explains his absence from the meeting (no surprise since both games are made by UBISOFT).

Goofs
In the present-day setting during the game one of the computers you hack shows Desmond Miles' ancestors through his mother and father. This report indicates that the first playable ancestor, Altair Ibn La-Ahad, comes from his mother's side. It shows the second one, Ezio Auditore Da Firenze, on his father's side. This contradicts the original statements made by Ezio and his uncle, Mario Auditore, in Assassin's Creed II that they were indeed descendants of Altair. This was either a mistake in writing or a change to the canon of the series.

Quotes
Mary Read: We're Assassins and we follow a creed, aye. But it does not command us to act or submit - only to be wise.

Edward 'Blackbeard' Thatch: Caution's nothing without charisma! For if a man plays the fool, then it's only fools he'll persuade. But appear to be the devil, and all men will submit.

Edward Kenway: Is this my reward for believing the best about men? For thinking that a bilge rat like you could muster up some fucking sense, once in a while? Maybe Hornigold was right. Maybe the world does need men of ambition to stop the likes of you from mucking it all up.

Q
How do the modern day sequences play out?
A
The modern day sequences pick up where the previous installment left off, with Desmond dead, Juno establishing an invisible dictatorship, and Abstergo uploading all Animus data onto "the Cloud." The present day framing device is similar to the mulitiplayer storyline in Assassin's Creed: Revelations and Assassin's Creed III, with an Abstergo researcher using the Cloud to access Edward's memories.
Q
What exactly was the Golden Age of Piracy?
A
Also popularlized in Robert Lewis Stevenson's Treasure Island and the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, the Golden Age of Piracy lasted from roughly 1650 until 1718, and involved history's most legendary pirates, such as Henry Morgan, William Kidd, Edward "Blackbeard" Teach, Jonathan "Calico Jack" Rackham, Charles Vane, and John "Black Bart" Roberts. As Great Britain, France, and Spain competed for control of the West Indies in a series of proxy wars (The Wars of Succession), the British appointed many privateers to augment their navy. The Treaty of Utrecht brought a fragile peace between the three nations, but consequently meant that many privateers and mercenaries who fought in these series of conflicts were out of work. It is also around this time that Spanish treasure ships were lost in a hurricane, and the promise of gold lured many of these ex-privateers to piracy. They set up a base in Nassau, which had been abandoned during the wars, and attempted to form their own government, the Brethren of the Coast. By 1718, tolerance for the rogue privateers had worn thin. The British appointed Woodes Rogers as the Governor of the Bahamas and drove the pirates off Nassau. Rogers captured Benjamin Hornigold, offering him a pardon if he agreed to hunt down his former comrades. Hornigold subsequently became a notorious pirate hunter, until he perished in a hurricane. By 1720, many of the era's most famous pirates had been executed or killed in battle. Most who survived the Purge fled the Caribbean, as pirate activity gradually became limited to trouble spots in Africa and Asia.
Q
Who is the main villain?
A
Templar interests are represented by Woodes Rogers, Laureano Torres (the Spanish governor of Cuba), and their hulking, silent enforcer, El Tiburon. However, the true villain is a neutral figure called the Sage, an avatar for Aite, the presumed dead husband of Juno, who has survived throughout the centuries by transferring his consciousness into other bodies, a process which has driven him insane. He is attempting to find a new vessel for his wife, who still remains a disembodied presence. The various incarnations of Aite are identifiable by a distinct heterochromia iridum (each eye being a different color). In addition to manipulating Assassins and Templars as it suits his goals, he also creates a third party, the Instruments of the First Will.
