Assassin's Creed: Changes (mentioned)

Charlotte LeFay born at Palais l'Abbaye; the palace was placed close to the city of Tours. She was the concubine of Madeleine François and the adoptive mother of her son: Marie-Jean François. She was also the lover of Caribbean Master Templar Augustin Rouen, and the mother of Françoise LeFay-Rouen.

Madeleine and Charlotte had economic problems, because of the Assassins in the capital. During the Assassin Purge, Charlotte was tasked to locate people in Caribbean that was loyal to their cause and beliefs, and recruit them to the Templar Order. After the Purge, she and Madeleine located traitors in their network. They managed to take down their enemies, and some years later she and Madeleine traveled to France and her brother Louis-Dominique. Madeleine never returned to Caribbean, unlike Charlotte – who administrated the Bullion-plantation and it's fortune. She was made the Grand Master of the Caribbean branch of the Templar Order – to her death. Augustin Rouen, the second-in-command accepted this – he was meant to be the Grand Master after Madeleine.

When Madeleine died in 1790, Charlotte and the Caribbean branch traveled to France to pay their respect. Charlotte herself died giving birth to a child she had with Augustin Rouen. Augustin raised his daughter to be a Templar, instead of being a puppet – like her mother. She served as an assassin for the Templars, and operated for the British Rite on their hunt for the diamond of Koh-i-Noor.

Early life Edit

Born to a rich French nobility-family, LeFay was soon taught how to act as a woman of her rank. But, LeFay had never been so fond of following the rule that women was to stay home. She had grown a relationship with the De Bullion-siblings: Louis-Dominique and Madeleine – and was more often with them than her conservative parents. With the relationship between those three, LeFay also embraced the fact that she was attracted to women instead of men – which was "normal" to be at that time.

When LeFay became aware of the fact that Madeleine had been married to a duke, she was heartbroken. But the marriage did not last long, so Madeleine was soon divorced from him. Ashamed, Madeleine took LeFay with her to Caribbean. LeFay was the one to decide where they would live now: she chose Port-au-Prince.

Caribbean Edit

Before the Purge Edit

LeFay and Madeleine established their own company, but it was difficult to do anything, because they was suppressed by the Caribbean Assassins. She and Madeleine did therefore called on help from the colonies, which turned a blind eye. Madeleine asked the governor of Port-au-Prince for help, and he did – in exchange for sex. Madeleine accepted: she had nothing. Madeleine did later earned one of the governor's plantations. This was to shut her mouth of her son that she had got with the governor: Marie-Jean LeFay du Port-au-Prince.

As Madeleine established contacts with other slave-owners, LeFay managed to find someone who could help them with their finances in establishing of their company: a man named Philippe de Grandpré. He was a Templar, unknown to LeFay, but was more than happy to help. Madeleine did however had problems: she, LeFay and Philippe was under constant watching of the Assassins – that had ruled the city since Pierre de Fayet was murdered by Adéwalé in 1737. Madeleine knew that their time would be tough, but she wanted to please LeFay, so she had shut her mouth.

During the Purge Edit

One day, Madeleine got news that seemed to make her happy, but she only said that she had got news about some enemies of the François-family had been removed – which was true, in some sort. Later, Madeleine received a letter from someone named The Company Man, and later they was visited by the Spanier Diego Vázquez. He had the orders that was to be given by The Company Man: If Madeleine and her associates managed to execute a list of actions, they would be granted a reward higher than any of their expectancies. He would be at the tavern the following week if he had some questions.

As soon as the week was over, Diego had left for the time being: he would return as soon as Madeleine asked for him again. Madeleine and Philippe immediately started to locate men and women that could be good Templar-puppets or -allies. Philippe used more money than he had to create and buy ships from the French Navy, but in short time was the Fleet of Bullion ready. Madeleine used her time to push on the slaves: Nouvelle Orléans needed more goods and supplies for their war against the Caribbean Assassins. She did also carried away business that had to do with buying weapons from men in whole Caribbean; she had contracts with men at plantations all around in Haiti and Cuba; merchants from all of Middle-America wanted to sell their goods to Madeleine. LeFay knew of the business, and she traveled to the islands in Caribbean to recruit more Templars or just some soldiers. (LeFay had just get known briefly with the whole concept, and with that to be considered as a Templar-puppet.)

After the Purge Edit

Augustin Rouen

Augustin Rouen, Madeleine's second-in-command in the Caribbean Rite

In 1776, Madeleine had given herself the rank of Grand Master of the Caribbean Rite. In 1778 her network of Templars had their fingers in all of the industrial work in the Central America that was in the elementary stage. She and her associates had pointed out a man named Augustin Rouen to be her successor and second-in-command – and LeFay found the man extremely attractive. Now as the Templars now ruled Caribbean in the shadows, everything was in its place: Nothing like if the Assassins had ruled – they would have made everything be to the people, while some decisions had to be done by those who had a greater education. To enlighten more people, Madeleine had – on the guidance of LeFay – built academies and schools to the people: the money had come from her own pocket – this would never happen if the Assassins had the control.

Jean-Baptiste Orpheus

Although everything was in its place for the Templars, Augustin soon located a snake in their midst: a man named Jean-Baptiste Orpheus. Orpheus was a man that had been a great supporter of the Rite of New Orleans. He had betrayed them when Aveline de Grandpré had murdered Madeleine de L'Isle and the rest of the members of the Rite. Now he lived at a plantation, where he recruited men and women that would like to get rid of people like Madeleine de Bullion and her associates – and worked as the Tax Collector for the Templar Order. He did also had another motive: he hated that Madeleine had chosen Rouen instead of him as her successor. He wanted to kill Rouen, LeFay, Madeleine and her son. As soon as Madeleine was acquainted with the situation, she wanted Augustin to find him and kill him. In the time being, she would use LeFay and their influence to take down all transactions of Orpheus.
FC Montez

The Montez-plantation

Weeks later, Augustin managed to locate the traitor Orpheus. Orpheus had paid two Templars to work with him: the brothers Edward and Marcus Rockmail. The three men had all a plantation in their control, and Augustin made sure that their secret business could not go further by just taking down Orpheus. The Rockmail-brothers had not regretted on anything they had done: they had betrayed Madeleine and LeFay for the greater good.
Jeanne Orpheus - transperancy

Jeanne Orpheus (Jean's wife)

In October 1778, Madeleine and LeFay made their way to the plantation where Orpheus was to be located: Montez. The plantation had fallen to the Frenchmen when Orpheus bought it in 1775, but was soon to be released from it's owner. Madeleine had asked Augustin to stay behind in case she fell. LeFay wanted to be killed along with Madeleine if she fell to Orpheus' blade. LeFay and Madeleine used a brig to enter the cove of the plantation. The two could simply walk into the plantation: as far as Orpheus knew, Madeleine had no idea of him trying to get rid of her.
Morrigan II

Mademoiselle Martinique, Madeleine and Charlotte's Templar-brig

Approaching the mansion, LeFay and Madeleine saw Orpheus held a Templar-ball. Orpheus danced along with his wife, a Templar – this could be told by her cross neckless. When the leader of the plantation saw Madeleine coming to him, he immediately walked up to her. His wife, madame Jeanne Orpheus, walked up to a man that stood by some fireworks. LeFay had got a knife from Madeleine to kill Jeanne Orpheus. The brig had got orders to fire mortars to the mansion as soon as the crew saw someone falling from the cliff. LeFay was supposed to kill Jeanne as soon as she got the chance. Madeleine walked to the cliff the mansion lay on. LeFay walked up to Jeanne, and the two talked about Templar-affaires. Some men started to rig the fireworks. In order to buy some time, LeFay talked about told that Madeleine had heard of Orpheus being irritated that she chose Augustin Rouen instead of him as her successor, but that Madeleine now had changed her mind. Jeanne saw on LeFay that she lied. At the same time, some fireworks exploded on the sky. LeFay used the knife to stab Jeanne in her chest several times. Mademoiselle Martinique, Madeleine and Charlotte's Templar-brig, shot her mortars up and hit the mansion. Madeleine and Charlotte ran with all of their powers. They reached the brig, watching the mansion of the traitor be set ablaze.

Later life Edit

France Edit

Location of Le Louroux

The city of Le Louroux

With the death of the Orpheus's, Madeleine got a letter from her brother Bullion in 1781. It said that he was an officer of a small city called Le Louroux. He wanted his sister to meet him again. He had not seen her since she moved to Caribbean. Many things had happened, but he was afraid on her behalf. He was afraid that the American Revolution would make the Templars fall to their knees – in France people also began to think in rebellious ways. He needed someone of family to support him: their sister, Élise, lived in Canada – and their mother refused to see him because of the rumors that said he was attracted to men. Madeleine understood his reason, and she left Caribbean for some months with LeFay and their son, Marie-Jean – now at the age of 18. The Order in Caribbean did now had to obey Augustin Rouen.

Back in France once more, LeFay and Madeleine was welcomed in La Rochelle by a man that worked for Bullion. Bullion had arranged with a carriage that could take their belongings to his estate in Le Louroux. Upon the arrival at the estate, the two siblings embraced each other. Just like when a groom is lifting his bride into the air and spinning, so did Bullion to his sister: he was so glad to finally meet someone he could put his life in. LeFay was happy to meet Bullion, too; the two gave each other a kiss on the cheek, before Madeleine presented her son to Bullion.

Months passed, and soon it was time to leave. But Bullion begged Madeleine to stay, and so she did: she wanted to stay with her remaining family. Disgrace had med her flee from her problems. Their mother would most likely die soon, and so Bullion would not have any one left in France. She stayed, but LeFay needed to leave: the business of their company in Port-au-Prince still had to be administrated – and she also missed Rouen, and LeFay did not understood. LeFay had embraced the fact that she was attracted to women, but it seemed she was more attracted to Rouen when it came to the fact. In August 1781, LeFay left France. But before leaving, Madeleine gave LeFay a letter that she did not had to open before she was back in Port-au-Prince. Marie-Jean had chose to stay, too.

In the letter it stood that Madeleine would never return, but her son might would – if he wanted to. LeFay was given the rank of Grand Master of Caribbean to her death. After the death of LeFay, Augustin would be the new Grand Master. Madeleine had chose to stay because of her brother. The Bullions had lots of money, and therefore would LeFay be the heir to the Caribbean company's fortune. Although this was to be fulfilled, Charlotte sent a monthly sum of money to Madeleine and Marie-Jean.

The Burial Edit

Whilst LeFay lived in Caribbean, she soon married Augustin Rouen. The two of them ruled over Port-au-Prince and Caribbean just as Madeleine would. They executed transactions in the name of the Order. LeFay was happy: she was over Madeleine now. Although when a letter came to the estate of LeFay, the feelings for her old friend and concubine made her heart broke: Madeleine had been killed by riots in Paris. LeFay and Rouen soon traveled to France. They both was in deep sorrow to hear of their friend's passing. At the burial was Marie-Jean, Callum Kerr, the Caribbean Rite and some of the American Templars that followed Kerr.

Death Edit

The following year, LeFay became pregnant with Rouen – very late in her age: 52 years old. They were both very happy. They bought toys, cloths and more to their little child. Marie-Jean came some weeks before LeFay was to born her child. Rouen was happy to meet him, and the two discussed Templar-affaires. One night, LeFay felt pain in her stomach: the baby was on its way. The nurses was waken from their sleep – they was bought some weeks earlier, ready to help their mistress. The child was healthy and would survive … This could not be said the same with LeFay however.
