“This guy appears out of nowhere, beats up ten guards, rescues Columbus, Machiavelli, AND Leonardo da Vinci, then escapes out the sixth-floor window. And he stole my wallet.”
Astounded 15th century Florentine
Nobleman Ezio Auditore da Firenze was the Master of the Italian Brotherhood of Assassins. Wielding his Hidden Blade, he battled the evil Templars on rooftops across Renaissance Europe.
He was a master of swordplay, stealth, and leaping from tall buildings. He destroyed a Templar fleet. He united the pages of a magic Codex to save three cities. He prevented the rise of the Cult of Hermes. Hermes is still mad about that last one.
He was the definition of a Renaissance man. He discussed navigation with Columbus after saving the sailor’s life. He talked astronomy with Copernicus after saving the scientist’s life. He both debated politics with and saved Machiavelli’s life several times.
He flew his best friend Leonardo da Vinci’s flying machine to rescue the Doge of Venice from the Templars, and almost made it in time. Leonardo made it up to Ezio with the idea to replace the Hidden Blade with a Hidden Gun. His rescues were more effective after that.
“No really, I took no pleasure in my skill.”
Ezio, to an openly skeptical Val
After a lifetime of thwarting evil, Ezio was quite surprised to discover that Valhalla was real. Ever one to trust his own judgement, he accepted the valkyrie’s offer and is glad he did. In Valhalla, he’s been teaching Caspian the Leap of Faith (‘next time just land in the hay’), discussing the techno future of consciousness with Ada, and just bumping into friends.
