Arispe was a Templar associate during the early 18th century. He attempted to control and regulate the rum trade in the West Indies through force and violence. This caught the attention of the Caribbean Assassins, who put out a contract on his life.
At some point between 1716 and 1722, Arispe went to Arroyos, where he rendezvoused with a rum trader called Tom. When the trader refused to give Arispe a sixty percent cut of his profits, he threatened Tom. Upon the arrival of Edward Kenway, a pirate intending to claim the contract on Arispe's life, Arispe shot Tom dead and fled on his ship. Edward chased after him with his ship, the Jackdaw, boarded his target's ship and then killed Arispe.
