In 1735, the Maroon hideout was located by a number of overseers, who proceeded to attack the hidden base in an attempt to wipe out the former slaves. The slaves were rescued by Adéwalé, an Assassin who had been recruited by Bastienne to provide the resistance with some assistance, who managed to eliminate the Overseers before they could escape with knowledge of the hideout's location.
Over the next two years, the rebellion grew in strength and power; liberated slaves from both the slave ships and those sugar plantations attacked by the Assassin joined the rebellion, until it became clear to Pierre de Fayet, the Governor of Port-au-Prince, that things were getting out of hand.
Aware that the rebels were liberating slave ships, De Fayet gave orders to sink any vessel that the Experto Crede attempted to liberate. One such act took place in 1737, leading to the deaths of hundreds of slaves and, nearly, Adéwalé's own.
Determined that De Fayet should pay, the Assassin resolved to kill the governor. He succeeded, but was subsequently forced to leave Port-au-Prince as it had become too dangerous for him there, and too dangerous for the Maroon for him to be there.
Decades later, during the 1790s, the Assassin Eseosa, the grandson of Adéwalé and Bastienne, played a significant role in the Haitian Revolution against their French masters who, distracted with their war in Europe, eventually surrendered control of the island to the slaves, handing them their freedom.
