Yusuf: Praise the heavens! We feared we had lost our Mentor to the vices of the big city!
Ezio: I am content with my own vices, grazie.
Yusuf: So, what's on your mind, Ezio?
Ezio: Tell me more about the Templars. You can them Byzantines, yet the Byzantine Empire was overthrown 60 years ago.
Yusuf: These men are remnants of a line loyal to the cause of the last Emperor, Constantine XI. Who leads them now, however, I cannot say.
Ezio: Capisco. I suppose it is up to me to find out.
Yusuf: Ezio, where is your hookblade?
Ezio: My hookblade?
Yusuf: You've never seen one? I grew up using these.
Ezio: Show me how it works.
Yusuf: Think of the hookblade as an extension of yourself, Ezio. This way. You think I cannot make this one? Didn't break a sweat! Come on.
Ezio: I cannot do that. Not so well, anyway.
Yusuf: Watch and learn, Ezio. We call this a hook-and-run. Sprint at your opponent, and just as you reach him, use the hookblade to slip by. Shahane! Harika! Shahane!
