Shao Jun's relationship with Ezio was complicated. She was everything Ezio had been and wanted to forget about: passionate, vengeful and fully devoted to the Assassins' creed. The old Master and the young woman had arguments and finally they bled together in battle, for the agents of the Tigers had followed Shao Jun to Tuscany.
Ezio finally admitted that he could not turn his back on Shao Jun and agreed to transmit some of his knowledge and wisdom. Impressed by her fighting abilities, he taught her a few tricks and gave her advice only a seasoned fighter could deliver. Finally, he gave Shao Jun his blessing, and let her depart with a gift, a mysterious wooden box which he insisted she did not open unless she lost her way.
