Paper Trail was a virtual representation of one of Ezio Auditore da Firenze's genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus.


After the assassination of Juan Borgia, Cesare's banker, Ezio Auditore returned to the Rosa in Fiore.


Ezio returned to the brothel to find two courtesans standing outside and crying.

  • Ezio: Where are Claudia and Maria?
  • Courtesan: We came back with the money. They followed us home.

Claudia surrounded by dead Borgia guards

Ezio rushed inside. Upon entering the brothel he was surprised to find the guards who followed the courtesans on the floor, dead; he then spotted Claudia standing with a blood-drenched dagger.

  • Claudia: What?
  • Ezio: My sister knows how to wield a knife.
  • Claudia: And I am ready to do it again.
  • Ezio: Spoken like a true Auditore.
  • Maria: Finally, you two came to your senses. It's about time.


The Borgia guards who followed Claudia's courtesans were killed, with Ezio realizing that his sister was more than capable of handling herself in combat, resolving his stubborn and overprotective attitude toward her.
