Ezio Auditore is the guest playable character in Soulcalibur V, and a character well known from the Assassin’s Creed series of video games.
Ezio’s first appearance was in Assassin’s Creed II and he returned for the next two videogames of the franchise: Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.
Born in Florence, Florentine Republic (today’s Italy), Ezio’s noble family lived during the Italian Renaissance age.
A mentor to the Italian Assassins, Ezio Auditore was also an ancestor to Subject 16 and Desmond Miles (characters featured in the Assassin’s Creed Series).
After Rodrigo Borgia ordered his men to execute Ezio’s father and two brothers Federico and Petruccio, Ezio took his sister and his mother, and escaped Florence.
Mario Auditore (Ezio’s uncle) lived in Monteriggioni, in the Villa Auditore. There, Ezio’s remaining family members took refuge and he learned about his heritage.
At the Villa Auditore he started the assassin training, and after many assassinations, Ezio Auditore finally reached his main target: Rodrigo Borgia.
It is told that, while on his way to find more about the past, Ezio boarded a Templar ship where a powerful artifact was held.
His attempt in getting the artifact was a success, but when the chest was opened, Ezio’s timeline jumped to the 16th century, where the assassin fought against strange enemies. After those events he appears back on the boat sailing towards Navarre to fight Cesare Borgia.
Weapons and Moves (Attacks)
Ezio masters the fighting style practiced by assassins. He excels in speed even if his attacks don’t inflict high damage.
Ezio Auditore fights with a variety of weapons. For his critical edge move, in SoulCalibur 5, Ezio Auditore uses the hidden blades, his crossbow and the hidden gun.
When he performs a critical move, Ezio throws a smoke bomb, cuts three times his opponent with the hidden blades, and then he fires a shot from the crossbow and another one from the gun.
