"Ah, Venezia! What other place is as beautiful, as stable, as perfect!"
―Alvise, during Ezio and Leonardo's tour of Venice, 1481.[src]
Benvenuto 4

Alvise greeting Leonardo da Vinci

Alvise da Vilandino (1441 – August 1500) was a baggage handler who resided in Venice.

Having been born in Venice in 1441, Alvise later welcomed the polymath Leonardo da Vinci and his close friend, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, to the city in 1481. Following this, he gave the pair a short tour of the San Polo District and introduced Leonardo to his new workshop in Venice, before being rudely left without a tip for his service. 

Several years later, Alvise joined the Venetian Navy. In 1500, while Venice was at war with the Ottoman Empire, Alvise was tasked with defending the fort of Modon from the Turks. Having drank heavily the night before the battle, Alvise panicked upon hearing cannon fire, stumbled out onto the deck in the midst of the battle and fell over the rail, where he drowned.

After Venice had lost the battle, the captain of Alvise's ship accused him of negligence, and he was erased from the naval logs.
