- "We, all of us, work in the dark to serve the Light. We don't get our names engraved on plaques, or statues erected in our honor. Those trappings are for the Templars, and well do we know such frippery is transient and hollow."
- ―Randall reiterating the Brotherhood's ideals to Duncan Walpole, 1714.[src]
That same year, Randall arranged a meeting with Master Assassin Duncan Walpole at Mrs. Salmon's Waxworks through an eight-year-old boy called Geoffrey, whom the Brotherhood used as a courier. Walpole arrived late, as Randall had expected, causing the Mentor to question what had happened to the Assassin's drive. In response, Walpole aired his grievances, to which Randall reminded him that the Brotherhood's goal was to achieve change, not fame or fortune.
When asked after the reason for their meeting, Randall explained that he wanted Walpole to travel to the West Indies and assist Ah Tabai in his hunt for a Sage that had reportedly appeared. The Assassin protested, claiming he could not simply leave his position at the East India Company. However, Randall revealed that, additionally, the Templars had potentially figured out Walpole's allegiance, putting him and the Brotherhood in danger.
In spite of this, Walpole refused to accept the mission. Familiar with the man's temper, Randall sent Walpole away, confident that, given some time, he would come around. The Mentor would be proven right, as the next day, Walpole joined him at Lloyd's Coffee House and expressed the desire to join Ah Tabai. Unbeknownst to Randall, however, Walpole had decided to turn his back on the Assassins and join the Templars.
