Clipper Wilkinson (1756 - unknown) was a member of the Assassin Order who lived in southern Boston during the American Revolutionary War. He was also a noted sharpshooter, who had specialized in using a musket, and an apprentice to Ratonhnhaké:ton.
Originally living in Virginia, Wilkinson spent his early years working as a surveyor and hunter on the frontier with his family, where he trained and became an excellent marksman. However, growing up as the youngest of five children, Clipper felt less valued than his elder brothers and grew tired of competing with them. As a result, he became estranged with his family and chose to move to New York. During his journey, Wilkinson hoped to find contracts in New York for a living and take part in the Colonist expeditions to the west of Ohio.
While in Boston, the American Revolutionary War began and Wilkinson's family had sided with British Loyalists. However, Wilkinson noticed that many young men and boys were being forced into military service by the British, who would execute those who refused to take part. Wilkinson was greatly opposed to the conscription, hence sided with the Patriot's cause for freedom.
Having heard rumors about Ratonhnhaké:ton's battle against the British oppression after the Boston Tea Party, Wilkinson approached him and requested his help; Ratonhnhaké:ton then liberated the South Boston district by assassinating the conscription agents. Soon after, Ratonhnhaké:ton met up with Wilkinson, who had discovered the identity of the British officer who was responsible for the conscription and was assembling a group of men to be recruited into the British Army.
Together, the pair decided to take action and assassinate the officer at a rally, utilizing the help of Wilkinson and his marksmanship skills. After freeing the recruits, Ratonhnhaké:ton revealed the truth of the Templar Order and explained the Assassins' cause to liberate all of mankind. Wilkinson then joined Assassin Brotherhood to fight for freedom.
- Recruiting Clipper granted Ratonhnhaké:ton's Assassin recruits a marksmanship ability, allowing them to kill targets from a distance.
