Man 1: What was that?
Man 2: Are they dead?
Man 3: Forgive me. I did not know.
Man 4: Have you anything to teach us? You will lead us all to ruin.
Ezio: Altair, barely 26 and already a Grand Master in command of a divided order. How does one cope with such responsibility and unlimited power?
I've made the acquaintance of an Ottoman prince named Suleiman. He's a clever young man with a fortitude uncommon for his age. On his suggestion I will be investigating some wayward Janissaries who may be in league with the Templars. With luck they will lead me straight to the core of the Templar's leadership. Meanwhile, the Venetian Sophia Sartor continues to help me find the hidden Masyaf keys. She is a diligent woman, full of passion and vigor, and I enjoy her company immensely. But I dare not tell her the purpose of my stay here, nor of my true vocation. Those who do not volunteer in our struggle should not be forced to fight it.
