- "And I don't think I've ever been so frightened as I was in that instant. It wasn't a fear that he was going to cause me pain, it was a sense that he saw right through me - into my heart - and he'd crush it if it pleased him."

Duncan Little (1730 – unknown) was an Irish member of the Colonial Assassins who lived in the Northern District of Boston during the American Revolutionary War. While living in Boston, he was recruited to the Assassin Brotherhood by the Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton.
Duncan originally hailed from Ireland and was the youngest son of a particularly large family. He later entered into priesthood at a young age, and was sent to Africa as a missionary in 1756. Little spent several years there, but in 1760, he returned to Ireland and subsequently abandoned the priesthood entirely.
After this, Duncan sailed to Boston in 1763, after receiving harsh treatment by his family for abandoning the Catholic Church. Little then settled in Boston's northern section, in which he gained a reputation for being an appreciated mediator that was less expensive than the local judiciary.
Due to his mediation position, he often assisted others with solving their problems, generally by dissuading them from a violent resolution.
- It is noteworthy that his database entry mentions that he was born in 1730, because Duncan would have been about 24 years old when his uncle was murdered in Theatre Royal, while the child present was significantly younger.
- Duncan is often seen holding a cross by a chain when sitting in a tavern, as he was once a priest and missionary. However, he does seem to dress in reverse of the traditional priestly attire, with a black collar in place of a white one. He also mentions his progressive views on religion when discussing how they affected his home country of Ireland.
