Honor, Lost and Won was a virtual representation of one of Ezio Auditore da Firenze's genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus.

Description

Ezio Auditore followed the Janissaries to their barracks and located Tarik Barleti, to learn where he had sent the weapons purchased by Manuel Palaiologos, and to assassinate the corrupt Captain.

Dialogue

A guard announcing the news about the dead Janissary

Ezio followed the Janissaries, wearing his slightly damaged disguise.

  • Janissary 1: Selim understands our plight. The Byzantines, the Mamluks, the Safavid. Only he has the courage to face these threats.
  • Janissary 2: Haklisin. (You speak truth.) Selim is a warrior. Like Osman and Mehmet.
  • Janissary 1: So why has our Sultan chosen a cat over our lion?
  • Janissary 2: Ahmet shares the Sultan's calm temperament. They are too much alike, I fear.
  • Janissary 1: Why does Ahmet linger in this city? He knows he is not wanted.
  • Janissary 2: He is like a moth hovering around an open flame. Waiting for his father to perish so that he may step to the throne.
  • Janissary 1: Did you hear? He offered Tarik a sum of money in exchange for our loyalty.
  • Janissary 2: God damn him. What did Tarik do?
  • Janissary 1: He spent half the money on horse feed and sent the rest to Selim!

The group arrived at the Janissaries' camp.

  • Guard: Khardeshlerim! (Brothers!) One of our own was found murdered and stripped of his garments not an hour ago, his body dumped like a mound of rubbish. Keep a close watch on these streets as you move about. Someone is planning to strike in our name. We must be ready.

Ezio infiltrated the camp, and overheard several Janissaries talking.

  • Janissary 3: Any news from the north?
  • Janissary 4: Selim's forces have fallen back to Varna. Heavy losses I am told.
  • Janissary 3: Olacak shey degil, oye degil mi? (Incredible, isn't it?) I pray for a swift conclusion.
  • Janissary 4: Yes, but in which direction?
  • Janissary 3: I cannot say. My heart sides with our Sultan, but my head hopes for Selim.

Ezio then eavesdropped on another group.

  • Janissary 5: Have you met Selim's young son, Shehzade (Prince) Suleiman?
  • Janissary 6: Not personally, but I have seen him. I know he is a remarkable boy.
  • Janissary 5: Not a boy, but a capable young man. With a magnificent mind.
  • Janissary 6: Does he take after his father?
  • Janissary 5: Belki. (Perhaps.) Though I suspect he is another sort of man altogether.

Finally, Ezio listened in on a third pair.

  • Janissary 7: Sultan Bayezid is a good man, and a kind Sultan... but he has lost the fire that made him great.
  • Janissary 8: No, no. He is still a fighter. Look at the army he has raised against Selim.
  • Janissary 7: This is further evidence of his decline. To take up arms against his own son? Shameful.
  • Janissary 8: Do not bend the truth to match the contours of your passion, efendi (sir). It was Selim who attacked our Sultan.
  • Janissary 7: Evet, evet. (Yes, yes.) But Selim did so for the glory of the Empire, not himself.

Ezio reached the center of the camp and oversaw Tarik meeting with a Janissary.

  • Janissary: Tarik. A message for you.
  • Tarik: Harikulade. (Perfect.) The rifles have arrived in Cappadocia, where Manuel has garrisoned his army.
  • Janissary: And our men, are they still with him?
  • Tarik: Evet. (Yes.) They will contact us when the Byzantines decamp, then we will meet them when they reach Bursa.
  • Janissary: Everything is falling into place, efendim (my Lord).
  • Tarik: Evet. (Yes.) For once.

Ezio assassinated Tarik from above.

Tarik revealing his business with the Byzantines

  • Tarik: Ah, what a bitter irony. Is this the result of Suleiman's investigation?
  • Ezio: You collude with the Sultan's enemies. What did you expect would come of such treachery?
  • Tarik: I blame myself. Not for treason, but hubris. I was preparing an ambush. Preparing to strike the Byzantine Templars where they felt safest.
  • Ezio: What proof do you have of this?
  • Tarik: See here. This will lead you to the Byzantines in Cappadocia. Destroy them if you can.
  • Ezio: You have done well, Tarik. Forgive me.
  • Tarik: Protect my homeland, Assassin. Allah ashkina (In God's name), redeem the honor we have lost in this fight.

The Janissaries surrounding Tarik went to attack Ezio.

  • Janissary: Murderer! Kill him!

Ezio managed to escape the Janissary camp.

  • Ezio: I am getting tired of this uniform.

Outcome

Ezio assassinated Tarik Barleti, but found out he was an innocent man, who had tried to track the Byzantines himself, but through different means.
