Announcer: Citizens of the Empire and travelers from foreign lands, take heed. By order of the Janissaries, new restrictions apply to all who travel to and from the city. Note that a reward of ten thousand akce will be given without question to anyone who brings in information that leads to the immediate arrest of the Suikastchi, Ezio Auditore.
Ezio: You have earned your rest, brother. Requiescat in pace.
Brothers. Sisters. The whole city rises against us while Yusuf's murderer waits and watches from the arsenal, laughing. Fight with me, and show him what it means to cross the Assassins.
Ezio: Where is she?
Ahmet: Such fury!
Ezio: Where is she!
Ahmet: If you think you are in a position to negotiate, kill me and be done with it! I am sorry it had to come to this. Two men who should be friends, quarreling over the keys to a library. We both strive for the same end, Ezio. Only our methods differ. Do you not see that? Peace. Stability. A world where men live without fear. People desire the truth, yes, but even when they have it, they refuse to look. How do we fight this kind of ignorance?
Ezio: Liberty can be messy, Ahmet. But it is priceless.
Ahmet: Of course. And when things fall apart, and the lights of civilization dim, Ezio Auditore can stand above the darkness and stay proudly, 'I stayed true to my Creed.' I will open that library, and I will find the Grand Temple. And with the power that is hidden there. I will destroy the superstitions that keep men divided.
Ezio: Not in this life, Ahmet.
Ahmet: Bring the seals to Galata Tower when you are ready. Do this and Sofia will be spared. My brother's army will be here soon, Ezio. After that, everything changes.
Ezio: How long have you been here?
Prince: Long enough. I had Ahmet tailed as soon as he returned, but I never expected to hear...all this.
Ezio: And what do you think?
Prince: He is a sincere man. But this Templar fantasy of his is dangerous. It flies in the face of reality. The world is a tapestry of many colors and patterns. A just leader would celebrate this, not seek to unravel it.
Ezio: He fears the disorder that comes from difference.
Prince: That is why we make laws to live by, a kanun that applies to all in equal measure.
Soldier: Shehzaden, stand back!
Prince: Hold, soldier. This man is not our enemy.
Ezio: What a challenge it would be to have a son like you.
Prince: You are not dead yet, old friend. Ezio...Spare my uncle, if you can.
Ezio: Would your father?
