- "I'd be lying if I told you we weren't worried when we were ousted from our old place, but the Lord works in mysterious ways."
- ―Oliver to Connor on their eviction.[src]
Oliver, also known as Ollie to his wife Corrine and friend Godfrey, was an innkeeper for "The Mile's End" who resided within the Davenport Homestead during the American Revolution. He and Corrine provided the community with alcoholic beverages and cooked food, which could later be sold or crafted to raise income.
Arrival at the HomesteadEdit
Oliver and his wife came to be introduced to the Assassin Connor after they had brought a wagon of ale to the Homestead, after they had been evicted from their inn at Boston. On the recommendation of the couple by the other fellow residents, who were busy enjoying themselves due to the alcohol and good company, Connor agreed to put forth the money for the construction of a tavern on the Homestead, officially welcoming Oliver and Corrine to stay. The tavern and inn was then dubbed, "The Mile's End", and was used for bed and board.
As they settled into the rural community, the couple revealed that they were faring very well, between the income received from the sailors from the Aquila, the residents of the Homestead, and the travelers passing through. Oliver confided in Connor that he had been frightened after having been ousted from his former home, but explained that the Lord "works in mysterious ways," which ultimately allowed him to arrive on the Homestead.
"The Mile's End" would later attract a weary traveler by the name of Timothy, who revealed himself to hail from London, but assured those present that he was not a colleague of the King's, but merely a pastor wishing to preach the word of God to the colonial settlers. During this time, Timothy requested bed and board from Oliver and Corrine, who heartily agreed.
In order to support the pastor, who wished for a church to lead his flock, Connor contributed the money for it to be built. This pleased the innkeepers especially, as Corrine revealed to Connor that both Oliver and her had been missing their Sunday Mass, and that Timothy's arrival had suited them greatly.
Assisting David WalstonEdit
After hosting Norris and Myriam's wedding reception, Oliver encountered a British scout on the Homestead. Oliver apprehended him, aiming a pistol at his head, while David Walston stood watch. Connor arrived, and the scout claimed to be searching for a "Big Dave," and that he was alone.
However, Connor soon spotted a second scout, who fled on being sighted. To this, Connor took chase, killing him, but not before the first scout had incapacitated Oliver and threw sand in David's eyes, before escaping. David then stated that they should soon expect company as a result, and his beliefs were confirmed not long after.
- It is revealed that Oliver was illiterate, as they required Father Timothy to read a letter they had received from Oliver's mother. In the letter, it made mention of how Oliver's mother had recovered from illness, much to Oliver and Corrine's delight, as Oliver had expected her to have succumbed to it.
- When Warren wished to give Prudence a gift, he went to "The Mile's End", where Oliver suggested having Corrine create a squirrel-skin hat for her, but Warren was reluctant, as he didn't think Prudence would enjoy having a wild animal skin on her head.
- Also, it is revealed that Oliver smoked a pipe, as he was seen puffing on one outside of "The Mile's End."
