A humble fishing community founded in the 18th century by the French, Percé nevertheless featured a sizable encampment of soldiers. The town also boasted a harbormaster's station, a general store and a tavern, the Sainte-Agathe.
In the mid-18th century however, King George's forces were claiming more and more land; eventually, Percé was captured by the British with the help of the Assassin-turned-Templar Shay Cormac. Sometime after, Shay prevented an Assassin attack on local businessman David Borgen, who, in his efforts to help remote settlements grow, had provided support to local Templar leaders.
- The name Percé is French for "pierced", referencing the nearby rock formation with a large hole in it. Said rock formation is featured in Assassin's Creed: Rogue, although historically it would have had two holes at the time.
