Or his exciting bio: "I was a seducer of women and a playful man, I possessed acrobatic skills far beyond those of my peers, barring my brother. I came from an affluent background and had many friends until the deaths of my father and brothers drove me out of Florence for many years."
Whatever it was, it fooled several women into believing the image above is a real photo, and some contacted the assassin to learn more about him. Reddit user Bombadil posted screenshots of their exchanges with Ezio for our entertainment:
