This article is about Ezio Auditore's memory. You may be looking for Evie Frye's memory.

A Change of Plans was a virtual representation of one of Ezio Auditore's genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus 2.01.[1]


After their victory at San Gimignano over Vieri de' Pazzi, Ezio Auditore, Mario Auditore, and his mercenaries returned to Monteriggioni.


Ezio arrived near the training ring to find his uncle celebrating along a few of his mercenaries.

  • Mario: And here he is! Our campione (champion), Ezio!
  • Mercenaries: All Hail, Ezio!
  • Ezio: I see you wasted no time starting the celebrations.
  • Mario: And why not?! You've done us a great service, nipote (nephew)! With Vieri dead, la Toscana (Tuscany) will grow quiet once more. Do you know what that means?
  • Mercenary 1: Basta lavorare! (No more work!)
  • Mercenary 2: Si passa tutto il giorno a bere! (We can drink all day!)
  • Mercenary 3: E a puttane! (And with whores!)

Everyone looked at him in confusion, he replied.

  • Mercenary 3: What?! It's true!

Everyone laughed at this.

  • Mario: Come, Ezio. Walk with me.
  • Ezio: Yes, uncle?

Mario motioning Ezio to follow him

They discussed the events that occurred earlier at San Gimignano.

  • Ezio: The Pazzi answer to another; a Spaniard.
  • Mario: He is Rodrigo Borgia, one of the most powerful men in all of Europe and leader of the Templar Order.
  • Ezio: Which makes him responsible for the murder of my father and brothers.
  • Mario: Yes. And he will kill you too, given the chance.
  • Ezio: Then I must stand against him if I wish to be free... But not until every other Templar has fallen to my blade. Father's list will guide me.
  • Mario: Where will you go next?
  • Ezio: Firenze. Francesco de' Pazzi will share the fate of his son.
  • Mario: A sensible next step. No doubt he intends evil for the city. Alright. That's enough grim talk for one night, I'll be in my study if you need me.

Mario returned to his study.

  • Ezio: I should read the letter my uncle gave me...

He opened the letter and saw that it was addressed to Francesco de' Pazzi.

Messer Francesco,
I have done as requested and spoken with your son. I agree with your assessment, though only in part. Yes, Vieri is brash and prone to act without forethought. And he has a habit of treating the mercenari like playthings. I've received reports of at least three men being disfigured as a result. But I do not think him, as you put it, beyond repair. Rather, I believe the solution to be a simple matter.
He seeks your approval. Your attention. These outbursts of his are a result of insecurities borne out of a sense of inadequacy. He speaks of you often and fondly and expresses a desire to be closer to you. So if he is loud and foul and angry—I believe it is simply because he wants to be noticed. He wants to be loved.
Act as you see fit on the information I've given you here. But I must ask that we end this correspondence. Were he to discover the nature of our conversations, I fear what might become of me.
Yours in Confidence,
Fra Giocondo

Ezio and Mario looking at the Codex Wall

Ezio then proceeded to his uncle's study.

  • Mario: Look familiar?

He pointed towards the wall.

  • Ezio: Other Codex pages.
  • Mario: Yes. Your father managed to find and translate a few before he...

Ezio handed Mario the Codex page he had.

  • Ezio: Here.
  • Mario: This is not your father's work. Someone else has translated it.
  • Ezio: Leonardo da Vinci. A friend.

He put the codex page along with the others on the wall.

  • Mario: Do you see the way the words cross from one page to the next?
  • Ezio: There is something underneath it all. Some kind of map. Where is it supposed to lead?
  • Mario: Your father and I managed to make out bits of a prophecy scrawled across these pages. It was written by an Assassin like us, who long ago held a "Piece of Eden." His name was Altaïr... He spoke of something powerful and ancient hidden beneath the land.
  • Ezio: What is it?
  • Mario: What indeed. Solving that little mystery is exactly why we collected these pages.
  • Ezio: Then let me help. It's time I take on my father's work. All of it. I'll start with the page I took from Vieri. Leonardo will decode it for us.
  • Mario: Bene (Good). Return here when time permits and we'll add it to the wall.

Ezio then scaled the villa and scouted the landscape, afterwards he collected four codex pages that were left in containers in and around Monteriggioni.


Ezio learned about the man truly responsible for the deaths of his father and brothers. He also learned about the search for the Codex of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad.
