** On the schmucks/Those Who Came Before side, we've got UsefulNotes/JesusChrist, KingArthur, Creator/HarryHoudini, UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy, and maybe UsefulNotes/MahatmaGandhi and John the Baptist. Oh and UsefulNotes/CleopatraVII, UsefulNotes/{{Caligula}}, UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan (well, his horse at least), UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat, the First Emperor of China and King Xerxes? All killed by Assassins. However, those are just the ones famous by Ezio's time; Subject 16 mentions additional people.

* BonusFeatureFailure: Giving Ezio's mother the feathers finally enables her to [[VideoGameCaringPotential come to terms with her family's death]]... until she gives you the Auditore cape, which makes every guard immediately aware of your presence and is annoying as hell to walk around with. On a side note, you get an [[CosmeticAward achievement]] on the [[{{Xbox 360}} con]][[PS3 soles]] if you wear the cape once in every city.

The focus this time is on another one of Desmond's ancestors, Ezio Auditore da Firenze. Ezio is like most other young guys of his age and class: {{rich|IdiotWithNoDayJob}}, [[LovableRogue carefree]], [[HandsomeLech spending most of his time wooing girls]] (and then some) and [[LeParkour jumping around the rooftops of his native Florence]]. [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive Life takes a brutal turn for the teenager]] when most of his family is arrested in a political plot that leaves his father and two brothers dead -- it turns out his father was an Assassin, and he has [[PassingTheTorch passed that mantle]] (along with some shiny equipment) to Ezio. Ezio, [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge seeking revenge]], flees with his sister and mother to his uncle's villa and begins to track down [[TheKnightsTemplar those responsible for the death of his family]], following clues that lead from Florence to Tuscany, Forlì, Venice, and even Rome.

** On top of that, if you knock an Italian man onto the ground, he may go "Oh no! Dinner is a-ruined-a!", a reference to the "Thumb" series of films by Steve Oedekerk (otherwise known for ''KungPow'' and, to a lesser extent, ''JimmyNeutron''), several of which feature a random Italian man who gets knocked down and laments the loss of dinner.

Added DiffLines:

* FeudingFamilies: The Assassin versus Templar conflict during the Renaissance essentially becomes a major feud between the Auditore family and their allies (Medici, Sforza, Orsini) versus the Borgia and their allies (Pazzi, Barbarigo, Orsi). This naturally mirrors the real-life Renaissance family feuds of course, and the first section in Florence deals with the Medicci's conflict with the Pazzi.
