Edward is the father of Haytham Kenway, and thus, the grandfather of Connor Kenway. Edward is known as a Privateer, assassin and pirate. He is described as a brash, charismatic, reckless, cocky genius of a pirate. He has been deemed a pirate first and foremost, while being an assassin's is most definitely a secondary characteristic. With the addition of free aiming, Edward can carry up to four guns and use them in one go. Cutlasses, daggers, swords, and all of the other weapons of the time will be available, but the rest of his armory can be upgraded to have these four pistols at his disposal for chaining attacks.
