Wanted posters were printed signs found in cities that featured the face of an Assassin, demanding for their immediate capture.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze first encountered them after the execution of his family. The posters prominently displayed the Pazzi family emblem and promised awards of 50,000 florins to anyone who killed or captured the Assassin once he had committed socially unacceptable behavior.
By tearing down wanted posters within cities, Ezio quickly learned to avoid the presence of guards while doing so, who were often alerted once they had detected his actions.
Accompanying this, during the French and Indian War, the Assassin Aveline de Grandpré found need to remove wanted posters bearing the image of her slave persona, to decrease any negative focus of her in the public eye.
During the American Revolution, the Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton also removed wanted posters to reduce his notoriety.
Many of the posters displayed in Florence, Venice, Forlì and San Gimignano were placed in unusual places, where citizens could hardly see them, negating their intended purpose. However, the posters in Rome were often placed at ground level and in more crowded areas.
