Sleeveless linen top (1-5 DR): Just a regular linen shirt Ezio found when he first arrived. Comes only in Turquoise with a Gorgon's head etched into the fabric.
Ancient Greek Broadsword (1-5 Melee Slashy damage): Also called a Spatha, Ezio has used this sword many a times in battle. In the Roman army, the same sword type was used by officers, like the Centurion, who didn't have heavy shields to defend themselves with and by the cavalry, whom being on horseback, need a weapon that has a longer reach. This is design for slashing, and it came with Ezio when he first arrived to MSF High.
Bronze muscle armor and shield from the Illiad (1-5 DR): While Ezio was in the linking version of The Illiad, he managed to end up wearing a set of bronze armor from Ancient Greece. A Muscle Cuirass, or Lorica Musculata protects his upper torso, vambraces protect his lower arms, a Hoplon shield for protection and bashing enemies in the face, a pteruges war fauld belt to protect the upper legs and a set of bronze grieves to protect his lower legs.
Short Tempered: When people humiliate Ezio by either wounding his honor, or by calling him coward he really feels the need to pulverize them.
Pounce - 1/1
Personality: Ezio is usually a laid back guy, but he takes his work seriously. He often enjoys Coach Kim's intensified gym sessions since its just as challenging as his Weapons training in the barracks. Anyone who provokes him gets to see why he has anger issues. In a fight, Ezio is determined to win, and the arena looks like the aftermath of a battle when he's done. He gets along extremely well with Dark elves, other Demi-humans and the True Legion. Ezio has great respect for Queen Althea, given his royal background. He is also multi lingual, so its not uncommon to hear him swearing in Latin or Greek when he's a little miffed.
Appearance: Ezio is 6'1", weighing in at 200 lbs. His eyes are crimson red, his long mane has blond bangs that fade to black, and he has an incredibley powerfull build for a boy of his age, covered in dark gold fur from head to tail. Like all Martial Demi-Humans, Ezio appears more like a lion than a human: his head, teeth, tail, claws and ears. His tail is 5 feet long with a tuft of black fur at the end. When he smiles, he reveals an arsenal of razor sharp white teeth.
Ezio prefers to wear clothing that reveals his arms and legs, with a preference of light or bold colors and he always wears gladiator sandals.
Background: The Alt-Earth Ezio comes from looks more like the late Middle Ages with electrical appliences and science. By this time, the main power in the Mediterranean basin is the Byzantine Empire: The Greek speaking half of the once powerful Roman Empire. After the Crusades, the Empire was only a shadow of it's former self. Fortunately one of her greatest generals equiped the army with weapons used by the roman legionaries and by the cavalry of Alexander the Great. These reforms caused the Romans to regain the entire Eastern Mediterranean basin. The general picked the right moment to strike because England was at war with Scotland, Spain was locked in the Reconquista and the Holy Roman Empire's shock troops, the Teutonic Knights were busy on crusade against the Baltic nations. This general was Ezio's father, Nicanor. Nicanor saw how corrupt the Papacy had become, but he decided to let the French handle it
Born in the year 1332, Ezio was trained by his father and was taught all he was told would be necessary to get accepted to the Imperial Academy in Constantinople. But Ezio believed that the red blooded nations of Western Europe would only desecrate Italy and that he could save it by restoring the Roman Empire to it's former glory. After his father's death, Ezio became commander of the Roman army and even married Cleopatra Palaiologina, daughter of Emperor John Palaiologos. The Romans regained control of lands held by the Moors in North Africa and southern Spain under his command. With the West weakened by the Black Death chaos errupted. In Rome, the Orsini and Colona families fought to control the city in the pope's absence.
Then in 1360, while Ezio was in Spain, the senate and the people of Rome turned to him to restore order. So Ezio became emperor, regaining not just the Middle East but the whole Roman Empire. His first action was the Treaty of Jerusalem, which stated that the Papacy and the Roman Empire were now equals. The people of Italy praised Ezio as their savior, since he returned all the Vatican's wealth back to the people, handed the power of the college of cardinals back to the hands of the Senate and even made an alliance between the Romans and an interstellar race of beautiful yet powerful plantlike women called Legion. The peace that was created seemed unlikely to endure when suddenly, the Holy Roman Empire declared war against Rome.
This time the Teutonic Knights brought large crude ceramic bombs that were filled with oil, gunpowder, flammable chemicals and animal excrament. When they hit their target, the explosions were massive. Ezio realized that the situation had been completely reversed and that if the battle were to continue, his forces would be anihilated. So when the second bomb was fired, he sacrificed himself to save his men, who regained their determination to win as they all rushed forward. When the smoke cleared, the emperor was nowhere to be found.
By the time Ezio came to, he had no idea where he was...
