Kent and his brother Raphael came from a long line of seafarers and continued that family tradition to serve the Templar Order. They had a firm grip on London's docks, and were thus able to import many illegal goods without the authorities noticing. These goods would then go on to be sold on one of London's many black markets.
After their arrival in the city in 1868, the Assassins Evie and Jacob Frye sought to wrest control of London from the Templars, and in doing so assassinated the Jekyll brothers near one of London's docks.
- The Jekyll brothers could be a reference to the story Jekyll and Hyde, written by Robert Louis Stephenson who lived in London. Raphael Jekyll representing Hyde and Kent representing Henry Jekyll.
