Danté - An Assassin's Story

"For too long we have put up with the oppressive rule of the White Cross. Too long we have let them take our money. It's time to fight back, and I'm ready. And should I fail, may whoever reads this take up the fight once again. One day, the White Cross will fall."
This is the diary of Danté. A young man in a semi-fantasy world who has taken it upon himself to fight back against his dictators, the White Cross, and become an assassin.


12. Assassin - Day 13

First things first, I have gained a new name.

The poor call me the Cloaked Shadow, and the rich call me Lo Ombra Spada, or the Shadow Blade.

This is worryingly close to my actual surname. I am Danté Ombraspada...I had always wondered where the surname came from.

Second things, I have received replied from a few of the shopkeepers already. I have my contacts now.

And already they have given me some information.

The Grand Master of the White Cross is to visit the city next week, exactly. I wonder if he's been delayed at all.

Leonardo and I have started drawing up plans to assassinate him while he's in the city.

So far, we have worked out the quickest route to the Citadel.

But we need to make sure those routes are kept clear so I can make the escape.

I also need to find out where the Grand Master is going to be in the Citadel.

If only my father were here. He'd tell me what needs doing, and how to do it.

I've also heard some worrying news.

It would seem that the White Cross are planning to ransack the poor sector in search of the Cloaked Shadow.

This could be problematic.

As I live there, and have helped the poor in the past, they'll search my house, and may find the evidence they need to execute me.

Precautionary measures must be taken, and if that means we move to the villa outside the city, we may have to.

If that's the case, there may be tunnels under the villa that my father used.

We shall see.

For now, Leonardo and I will continue working together to find out all we need to know for my plan.

If we can kill the Grand Master, the White Cross will be weakened, and the revolution will be able to take place.

But until then, we wait...
