House of Orsi
Ludovico Orsi (1455 - 1488) was a member of the Orsi family of Forlì, and older brother to Checco. Bored with their life in the countryside, the two began a loan-sharking business, where they murdered any who did not pay their debts.
Working for CaterinaEdit
The brothers were once hired by Caterina Sforza to kill her own husband Girolamo Riario, after finding out that he was a Templar. Riario, who was already in debt to the Orsi brothers, was stabbed to death by them during a meal.
Battle of Forlì and deathEdit
Later, Rodrigo Borgia hired them to kill Caterina and obtain the map of remaining Codex pages transcribed by Girolamo Riario, and to steal the Apple of Eden, an artifact taken from him by Ezio Auditore da Firenze in Venice. The Orsi brothers agreed, and laid siege to the city of Forlì.
In the process, they captured two of Caterina's children, Ottaviano and Bianca Riario. From there, Checco left Ludovico to be responsible for guarding Ottaviano, who he held captive on top of a lighthouse. After having rescued Bianca, Ezio climbed to the top of the lighthouse, killed Ludovico, and swiftly released the boy.
- Ludovico: Caterina was a fool to send you.
- Ezio: Or are you the fool, dying for a handful of change? Was it worth it?
- Ludovico: More than you know... The Maestro gains his prize, because of me.
- Ezio: Muori col tuo orgoglio, per quanto vale... (Die with your pride, for all it's worth...) Requiescat in pace. (Rest in peace.)
