ACR Ezio Letter

Ezio writing to his sister

埃齐奥·奥迪托雷的信是一些意大利刺客埃齐奥·奥迪托雷写给他的妹妹克劳迪娅的手写稿。通过书信,埃齐奥告诉他妹妹自己打开阿泰尔的图书馆的进展。

书信编辑

1511年3月(小说中是1510年11月20日)

亲爱的妹妹克劳迪娅。我已经在阿卡待了一个礼拜了。虽然目前一切都好,这里的人们很热情,我的食宿完全不需要发愁。但我做好了最坏的打算。

他们警告我说,前往马斯亚夫的路上遍布外地的雇佣兵和强盗。至于这意味着什么,我不敢多想。

十个月之前当我从罗马出发时,我的心中只有一个目的,那就是完成父亲未竟的事业。在那封早在我出生之前就已写就的信中,他提及了阿泰尔导师曾在那个城堡中建造了图书馆一事。一个充满了知识的圣地。

但是当我抵达之后我究竟会找到什么呢?谁会在那里等着我?或许是一群残忍的圣殿骑士,那是我最担心的。也或许什么也没有,只有凛冽的寒风?

马斯亚夫已被刺客们抛弃了300多年,我们还能将其据为己有吗?这里还欢迎我们吗?

我已经厌倦了这场战斗,克劳迪娅。不是因为我累了,而是因为我们的奋斗似乎只指向一个方向,混乱。

如今我还有许多问题需要解答,所以我要去那里寻找答案。如果我能获得伟大的阿泰尔的智慧,那么或许我就能真正地懂得我们战斗的意义,以及我在其中的位置。

克劳迪娅,如果我发生了什么事,如果我的技能辜负了我,或者我的雄心让我步入歧途,你一定不要为我寻求报仇,而要继续寻求真理,这样大家才会收益。

我不过是千千万万凡人中的一员,世界并不会因我的离去而受到什么损失。

May 1511

Dear Sister, Masyaf is overrun by a battery of Templars, and their motive is clear. They desire the secrets locked away in Altaïr's library – secrets they believe will lead them to something called the Grand Temple. Whether or not this is true, I do know the library is real. I have seen its door for myself. But none can enter. Not without five keys which were sent to Costantinopoli with Niccolò Polo almost 300 years ago.

Claudia, I must find these keys. The Templars have already located one beneath Topkapı Palace, and I do not know how difficult it will be to find the others. Only time, skill and a bit of luck will tell.

Constantinople

Claudia, Costantinopoli – called Istanbul by the Turks – has welcomed me as one of its own. The Assassins here, led by an affable fighter named Yusuf, take great pride in their city, a place as diverse and colorful as one could imagine.

But it is a troubled city too. A rebellious faction of Byzantine Templars still fights to retain influence, and their recent attacks have delayed my search for the Masyaf Keys. But this will not last. As soon as I am able, I will begin looking for Niccolò Polo's former trading post, in search of clues that will bring me nearer to the Masyaf keys.

The first key

Claudia, I am now in possession of one of the Masyaf keys. And better still, I have discovered a map – encoded with signs and symbols – which I believe will lead me to the remaining keys. Its full meaning is a mystery to me, but I am thankful to have a met a Venetian woman willing to help me decipher it.

I must not overstate my successes. The Templars still hold one key hostage, and if I am to recover it, I may need more help than the Assassins can provide. If I can make a friend in the Ottoman court, my access to the secrets of the city will improve greatly...

Prince Suleiman

I have made the acquaintance of an Ottoman prince named Suleiman. He is a clever young man, with a fortitude uncommon for his age. On his suggestion, I shall be investigating some wayward Janissaries who may be in league with the Templars. With luck they shall lead me straight to the core of the Templar's leadership.

Meanwhile, the Venetian Sofia Sartor continues to help me find the hidden Masyaf keys. She is a diligent woman, full of passion and vigor, and I enjoy her company immensely. But I dare not tell her the purpose of my stay here, nor of my true vocation. Those who do not volunteer in our struggle, should not be forced to fight it...

The third key

Excellent news, Claudia. I now have a name: Manuel Palaiologos, nephew of the deposed Byzantine Emperor Constantine. I have few doubts that he is the man leading the Templars. My task now is to interrogate a traitorous Janissary named Tarik Barleti, and find the location of the Templar's army.

Until then, Sofia and I shall continue our search for the one key that remains hidden. With every passing moment, I know my chances grow slimmer, and yet I cannot help but linger some days to stay an extra hour with her, to hear her voice and watch her face animate with joy as she speaks of the things that move her - her books, her city, her memories. I cannot help but think what a shame it will be when I find the final key...

Cappadocia

I have left Costantinopoli and set sail for the interior of Anatolia, to a region called Cappadocia where Manuel is training his soldiers. If I am lucky, I will not be alone, for there may be Ottoman spies in the area waiting to strike.

But as ever, I put stock only in myself, and hold the memory of dear Sofia close to my heart. Claudia, you would laugh to hear the racing thoughts of your brother now. I have come to admire Sofia with more affection than I thought possible. After the death of Cristina, something withered in me... But that feeling, that capacity for love, has returned. I adore Sofia, but dare not drag her into this life of mine... not without fear of hurting her, or driving her away.

Ahmet

Forgive the haste of my handwriting Claudia. Much has transpired, and little of it good. I am on a ship bound for Costantinopoli, in pursuit of a man whose treachery has eluded me until now. Prince Ahmet – Suleiman's uncle – is the man leading Templars here. He is the mastermind behind the Masyaf expedition, and he will stop at nothing to retrieve the keys, all of which are now in Assassin hands.

So what holds me back? Why do I not take the keys back to Masyaf myself and be done with these fools? Because I have been careless. Because the Templars know about Sofia, and they are looking for her. Oh Claudia, if anything should happen to her, I could not live with myself. I have dragged her into a war she knows nothing about, and it will be my burden to bear if she comes to any harm.

Return to Masyaf

I write these lines with a steady hand and light heart. We are in Acre now – Sofia and I – with the five Masyaf keys in our possession, and all the time in the world. Sofia is a seasoned traveler and a fine companion to have so far from home. Tomorrow we will make our way to Masyaf, and once there, into Altaïr's library to fulfill our father's forgotten dream.

Forgive the shortness of this letter dear sister, for it is late, and we are tired. Perhaps, with luck, the next words you will hear from me will be in person.

Con affetto (affectionately), Ezio.
