PL Truth SeekerHQ I wanted to ask you something. Which is… what's your name?

The title of this article is conjecture. Although canon, no official name for the subject of this article has been given.

"Reject the base and material! Seek salvation in the flames! The brush, the pen, the sculptor's clay! These are the Devil's tools, and what wretched things they birth! So today I call upon you to cast off these abominations; and consign them to the flames that you may be cleansed, that you may be free!"

Assassin's Creed II

The Painter (unknown - 1497) was a Florentine nobleman and one of Girolamo Savonarola's nine lieutenants, men who he empowered to control the citizens of Florence, during the Bonfire of the Vanities. As with so many others, Savonarola used the Apple of Eden to control him.


Rise to powerEdit

When Savonarola used the Apple of Eden to take control of Florence, he instilled authority into nine men to make sure his will would be enforced. One of his main priorities for the city was undoing the Renaissance, thus the Painter was tasked with destroying any art or scripture he could find.


During one of his speeches, the Painter walked around the bonfires created by the burning materials. While he was observing the artistic materials turning into ashes, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze managed to catch him by surprise and ended his life. With his dying moments, the Painter confessed that his actions were not only the work of the Apple's manipulation, but also because of his own doubt.
