A Dangerous Trade was a visual representation of a genetic memory relived by an Abstergo Entertainment research analyst through the Animus Omega.


Lo Sparviero set out to find a Crow messenger to steal the letter he was planning on delivering and replace it with a fake one.


The Assassin killed a Templar agent named Vittorio in order to stall the messenger and retrieve a forged letter by Niccolò Machiavelli that he then threatened the messenger into swapping with the real one. The letter was a summons from Il Corvo to all Crows, calling them to Rome. Upon hearing this, Machiavelli himself joined the Assassins and rode to Rome immediately.
