The Priest (unknown - 1497) was one of Girolamo Savonarola's nine lieutenants, men put in charge to help Savonarola control Florence. He was killed by Ezio Auditore da Firenze during the Bonfire of the Vanities. Like most of the lieutenants, he was being controlled by Savonarola's stolen Apple.

BiographyEdit

Rise to powerEdit

Soon after taking control of Florence, Savonarola assigned nine men as his lieutenants. Each of these lieutenants had the duty to make sure the citizens would refrain from riots or revolutions. The priest did this by preaching to the citizens, in an attempt to gain their trust and make them loyal to his master.

DeathEdit

The Priest stood on top of the Duomo near the tallest point in Florence, preaching to the people below in an attempt to glorify Savonarola. His men were stationed all around the building, each of which was ready to sound the alarm when they saw Ezio scaling the building.

However, Ezio was able to climb the building unnoticed, and avoided the many guards stationed along his path. When he reached the top, Ezio assassinated the Priest before any of his henchmen could prevent the assassination. In his dying moments, the Priest explained that his strong faith had led him to support Savonarola, causing him to "lead his flock astray".

TriviaEdit

  • In his sermon, the Priest mentioned the "Rex Regum", which is also a name for the philosopher's stone. The philosopher's stone is a magical alchemical component with the power to turn metals, mostly lead, into gold.
  • The sermon was a liturgical service, published in "Liber Precum Publicarum", In the Time of War, with the Lord's Prayer attached.
