actually, this is Connors grandfather, so its Ezio's great, great, great, etc grandson. So technically, it would be a combination of Ezio and Connor. And i am definitely buying the game. just so i can say."AAARRRGG, I see an assassin on foot, clean the deck with his blood, HAHA!"
Accctually if you listen to some interviews all the Assassins aren't related....what makes Desmond so special is that he IS related to all...what 5 now?...so in this last game when he said to his dad "why don't YOU get in the animus!?" his dad couldn't...cause he's not related to Conner (perhaps his mother is?) lol they say it's complicated but true
Yes, I remember that line, Yet they are connected, Even if he can't access his Ancestor in the Animus, he had some of the DNA from the ancestor. So Technically they are related, but not close enough to access memories by DNA.
Desmond is related to Altair, Ezio, and the Kenways...but THEY are not related to each other...Altair and Ezio aren't related, neither are they ancestors of the Kenways...at least that's what the makers of the games have said ^-^ Again this is what makes Dessy special...he is related to 3 different sets of pure assassins (assassins who have the "site" your eagle vision...if you notice no one else has this and they make a point of pointing that out )
Basically, yes. Ezio will always be my boy.... but Connor had to work hi way into my affections. Haytham was almost instant. He didn't even have to try. But Edward... I get a feeling he'll take the cake.
