In 2016, after the Templar Ortega Sanchez learned about Arturo Viera's attempt to capture an Assassin team targeted by his order, he and a strike team led by Whittaker left in a helicopter for the Estadio Azteca of Mexico City. Once there, the Templars killed Viera's girl and injured the kingpin using a machinegun, with Whittaker personally finishing him. After a brief fight between Whittaker and an injured Charlotte de la Cruz, the Templars surrounded the injured Assassins.
Believing that they would do anything to capture her alive, de la Cruz threatened to kill herself if they didn't let her friends go but Sanchez refused, stating that bringing home the head of the famous Galina would be enough. De la Cruz then offered the location of the meeting of Erudito's leaders planned to take place three days later and this time Sanchez accepted. He gave her one day to look into the Animus for an answer and to respect their pact and Whittaker and Sanchez left in the helicopter with their men.
