About Mary Read
Mary Read is a character in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag who is an English pirate and a member of West Indies Brotherhood of the Assassins, as well as one of the founders of the Pirate Republic of Nassau. She is well-trained by Ah Tabai in combat and fighting. However, Mary must undertake an identity of a man named James Kidd, an illegitimate son of William Kidd, in order to maintain her persona as a respectable pirate.
Later, Mary, as James Kidd, meets with Edward Kenway and goes on the journey to a place called the Observatory with him. The year after they reunite again to track down and assassinate Prins and Laureano de Torres y Ayala, the Templar Grand Master.
Going through many obstacles together, their platonic bound grows to the point that Mary trusts Edward enough to reveal her true identity to him, then she specifically tells him not to say hr secret to anybody or else she’ll ‘unman’ him.
It is unquestionable how much of leadership and courage Mary Read has, but what she also has is an awesome personality for being both adventurous and easygoing.
