Beginnings of a Conspiracy was a virtual representation of one of Ezio Auditore da Firenze's genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus.
Ezio Auditore received a contract from Lorenzo de' Medici to assassinate several of Girolamo Riario's men involved in a theft of a rare map from the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, and the murder of several of the palazzo's residents.
Ezio tracked down and assassinated all of the targets, completing the contract.
- Girolamo Riario's involvement in the theft of the map suggested that he used it to pinpoint the locations of the Codex pages scattered across Italy.
