Desmond Miles was born in an Assassin “hideout” in the United States, which was known as “the Farm“, an off-the-grid compound with a population of about thirty people. Though he was destined to be trained as an Assassin, he was frustrated by his parents’ explicit instructions not to leave the compound, and believed them to be overly concerned and paranoid. On his sixteenth birthday, he finally fled, wanting “to see the rest of the world.” He had no regrets over leaving his parents since, as far as he was concerned, they were little more than his wardens, with the farm as his prison.

After leaving the Assassin compound, Desmond went into hiding for nine years. While keeping a low profile, he eventually became a bartender. Wanting to avoid the Assassins, Desmond never used his real name, and used only cash to purchase items. However, he was eventually found, traced through a fingerprint needed for a motorcycle license, and was kidnapped by the Templars, who brought him to an Abstergo laboratory in Italy.

Desmond was used by Abstergo as a Catalyst to look for “Pieces of Eden” via Animus. She was rescued by Lucy Stillman, and  told Desmond that they wanted him to be trained as an Assassin, which could be achieved in a matter of days, thanks to the Bleeding effect. Doing so required him to learn through the ancestor that he had synchronized with Subject 16, Ezio Auditore. Desmond agreed to help almost immediately, which surprised Lucy. He was then quickly plugged into the Animus 2.0, and began reliving Ezio’s memories.

As he climbed out of the Animus, Lucy tossed Desmond a hidden blade with the Assassin insignia on the bracer, and asked for his assistance in covering their escape. Making their way into the warehouse, they were confronted by Warren and several Abstergo security guards, all of whom were intent on reclaiming Desmond.

The two eliminated all of the Templars that assaulted them, with Desmond – now fully synchronized with Ezio and possessing all of his abilities – masterfully using his hidden blade to kill many of the guards himself. With his entourage defeated, Warren was left to confront Desmond on his own; though he opted instead to retreat, promising that their victory was only temporary.

Let’s Switch to the other main Character. Ezio Auditore da Firenze:

Ezio Auditore da Firenze (1459 – 1524) was a Florentine noble during the Italian Renaissance and, unbeknownst to most historians and philosophers, Mentor of the Assassin Order in Italy. He was an ancestor to both Desmond Miles and Subject 16.

Ezio remained unaware of his Assassin heritage until the age of 17, when his father and two brothers, Federico and Petruccio, were murdered before his eyes. Forced to flee his birthplace with his remaining family, Ezio took refuge in the Tuscan town ofMonteriggioni, at the Villa Auditore. Learning of his heritage from his uncle, Mario Auditore, Ezio began his Assassin training and his quest for vengeance against the Grand Master of the Templar OrderRodrigo Borgia, who had ordered the execution of his father and two brothers.

During his quest, Ezio managed to not only unite the pages of Altaïr’s Codex for the first time since Domenico Auditore but also to save the cities of Florence, Venice, and Rome from theTemplars‘ control. He ensured the future travels of Christoffa Corombo to the “New World,” liberated Rome from Borgia control, and prevented the rise to power of Ercole Massimo‘s Cult of Hermes, helping spread the Renaissance and Assassin ideals of independence and free thought throughout Italy.

What have learned?

Follow Instructions! – This game is does not want any errors! It doesn’t say “Game Over” or “You Suck”  It simply Desynchronizes you because Ezio did not do “errors” and “careless mistakes”

Full Synchronization – This game is challenging players for Full Synch! here is a video to explain it:

Lucrezia Borgia

The House of Borgia, or Borja, was a SpanishItalian noble family that became prominent during the Renaissance. Notable members of the family include RodrigoCesare and Lucrezia Borgia. The family is known today for their crimes, such as theft, murder, incest and simony. During the Renaissance, the Borgia family was the most prominent embodiment of the Templars and also the Order’s leaders. In 1492 with election of Rodrigo Borgia to Pope, the family became the ruling body of the Papal state. The city of Rome declined into corruption, theft, murder and oppression.

Ezio Auditore became a prominent resistance against the Borgia in the early 16th century, and recruited citizens to the Assassinscause. As the power of the Borgias declined and disarrayed, the city of Rome experienced a change, the benefits of art and culture finally arrived and its people discovered the prosperity of the Renaissance. In 1503 with the murder of Rodrigo Borgia, courtesy of his son, Cesare, the Borgia family took an instant downfall, with Cesare, the Captain General of the Papal armies, arrested and exiled to Spain in 1504. The family lost all of it’s influence upon the death of Rodrigo after Pius III and later Julius IIsucceeded him as Pope.

Sequence 1:

The continuing story is set in 2012. After escaping the Templars‘ attack at the end of Assassin’s Creed IIDesmond MilesLucy Stillman, Rebecca Crane and Shaun Hastings flee to Monteriggioni, establishing a new hideout in the ruins of the Villa Auditore. After restoring the electricity in the old tunnels under the villa, the player once again takes control of Ezio Auditore through the genetic memory of Desmond Miles using the Animus 2.0 (which is the game’s memory interface). Their mission is to find the Apple of Eden, an important and mysterious artifact that could prevent the impending disaster that is coming in that same year, believed to be perpetrated by the Templars.

Ezio’s story continues in 1499, where he exits the Vault, confused by what he saw inside. He escapes Rome with his uncle Mario Auditore and arrives at Monteriggioni. Once home, Ezio is comforted by the prospect that his personal vendetta is over and that his days as an Assassin are done; however, Niccolò Machiavelli challenges Ezio’s decision to leave Rodrigo Borgia, now Pope Alexander VI, alive. The following morning, Monteriggioni is besieged by Cesare Borgia, son of Rodrigo. Mario is killed at the hands of Cesare himself, and the Apple lost to Cesare and the Templars. Ezio escapes with his family and travels to Rome, the center of the Templar Order in Italy, once again seeking vengeance against the Borgias. There, he discovers that the Assassins are failing in the fight against corruption. Determined to redeem the Guild, Ezio convinces Machiavelli that he has what it takes to lead while assembling a Brotherhood powerful enough to destroy the Templars and his new arch-nemesis, Cesare Borgia.
