Ezio, his mother, and his sister take to hiding at the Monteriggioni villa owned by his uncle Mario, who helps to train Ezio in the ways of the Assassins. Ezio and Mario discover that Rodrigo Borgia is the figurehead of a number of Templars all who were accomplices in the execution of his family, and with help of allies like Leonardo da Vinci, work to take down these Templars.
