Unrequited Shay/Ziio and Achilles: Turns Out That Shay Inadvertently Helped the Assassins Win
So it turns out that Shay and Ziio are the same age, both born in 1731. From the way Ziio casually pops up at the Green Dragon before she and Haytham take out Braddock, she's familiar with the rest of the Templars (though she didn’t know they were Templars at the time). So what if Shay had a thing for her as well? While he finally accepts she's only into Haytham, his crush moves into a frienship/one-sided longing fo4 her, even after she breaks up with Haytham. In fact Haytham has Shay look out for her. And it's Shay who informs Haytham of her death and Connor's existence (which Ziio made Shay swear to keep a secret during her lifetime) once Haytham returns to the colonies in 1775, after rescuing Jenny.

So when Shay finds out Ziio is pregnant and having difficulty with the pregnancy, he sends her to Achilles (it's canon that Achilles and Ziio knew each other, as Achilles mentions it in passing to Connor). Though because Shay is still guilty over his betrayal of the Assassins, he makes Ziio swear to never mention him to Achilles. Basically, Shay is messy, with an unrequited love of Ziio that extends to protecting Connor, guilt from betraying the Assassins and a wariness of Haytham since he blames him for the break-up. Ironically, it's Shay's concealment of Connor and introduction of Ziio to Achilles that brings down the Templars; if he would have revealed Connor to Haytham and never put Ziio in Achilles' path, Haytham would have likely found Connor sooner and raised him as a Templar, versus Achilles raising him as an Assassin who ends up decimating the Templars.
