In 2012, Vidic and Stillman supervised Desmond Miles' reliving of Aquilus' genetic memories when Aquilus was injured and the data feed cut out. The high-ranking Templars in audience complained and called for Desmond's replacement, though Lucy interrupted them and argued against it. The Templars said they would discuss her proposition and left. Vidic cautioned her on her attitude before leaving her to take care of the unconscious Desmond while he verified the Animus. He was later informed they were allowed to try again.
After he was done reprogramming the Animus, Vidic went to Desmond's room, finding him threatening Lucy. He jabbed Desmond with a sedative and ushered him back into the Animus. Though Lucy protested, Vidic made it clear that they had no other choice. Vidic and Lucy argued once again after the executives proposed killing Desmond, having already discovered the map they sought.
