Connor Kenway was the oldest out of his two other siblings. His parents were a part of a small traveling circus, before circuses were really a thing, which let them eek out a living.
As soon as Connor was old enough, he began to be taught his parents profession. He took to the acrobatics and flips like a Jedi takes to hypocrisy, and with his mothers backing he invested time in learning the trick shots that could be done with a bow or a pistol. It goes without saying that he was very good at wooing a crowd. He received most all his schooling from the more knowledgeable circus performers. This limited is knowledge of the outside world quite a bit.
As a young child, and even through most of his teenage years this life style suited him quite well. Only when Kenway reached his mid-teens did his hunger for interaction with people his own age become a problem. He frequently disappeared from wherever the circus was camping in that particular town. This normally led to him hanging with the more troublesome younger denizens.
Connor himself however managed to stay out of trouble and more or less live a balanced life. This only lasted til he neared the age of nineteen. A few months before his nineteenth birthday, the circus crew set up camp just outside of a town that they’d be visiting later in the week. One night Connor was awoken by screaming, coughing and smoke.
The night then became a blur. All Connor really remembers from the night, is his father telling him to take his siblings and get far away from the camp. Even with the adrenaline blurring everything, Connor managed to guide his brother and sister into the nearby city, where they were taken in by the city guards.
The next day it was explained to them that the circus, which did have a few Illusionists and “Magicians”, was clearly a collection of witches and warlocks who were in league with the devil, and that the overly-religious zealots had taken it upon themselves to end that pagan threat.
The city guard had no exact leads on who had taken part in the slaughter, and because of that there was nothing they could do.
At this point Kenway was faced with a choice. Of course he wanted revenge, but he had no leads to go on either. The more immediate concern was how exactly he’d be able to care for his siblings. They were a good six years younger than him. They couldn’t stay here, as they’d be killed when it was found that they were survivors from the circus. What they needed to do was leave town, but the lack of money, or help from the guards made this a very harrowing idea.
In the end, Connor made the hard decision to hitchhike their way to London. The journey was long. Their sister didn’t make. It seemed Connor took it harder than his younger brother, even though he had been closer to her. After entering the city, Kenway went back to the few friends he had in town. Most of them being orphans, he and his brother quickly fell in with them. This is what led them into crime. For the most part the crimes Connor and his brother committed with the group tended to be petty and harmless, but after a few months, they did escalate into more major things, such as breaking and entering. Considering Connor’s skill luck was the only thing that kept him from being caught.
And it seems that his luck had run out.
