In the end of the game, if you choose love, you receive a letter from Rose, your sister. It refers to her being in a place filled with trees, with a man in a cloak who's name she forgot and who's face she never saw. That hooded scary man is in fact the Oldest Hero, Scythe. His name has been forgotten because he has lived for so long, as the "Time of Heroes" has now passed. It has been confirmed that Scythe is the "hooded figure" mentioned in the Letter from Rose. This adds credibility to the idea that Scythe could be William Black, as Rose states in her letter that "he says he knows our family". Meaning either that as an Archon of the old kingdom he is of the same bloodline and so an ancestor of Rose and the Hero of Bowerstone, or referencing the fact that Scythe knew the Hero of Oakvale from Fable. She also writes "I think he's a king or something", a reference to his reign as Archon.
