I bet you never though that Mario, as plump as he is, could be the next Assassin. Imagine him running from building-top to building-top and stabbing dudes in the throat. I would expect that behavior form Wario but not this goofy, Italian man. Who would control him in the Animus, though? Would it still be Desmond, or would it be Mario himself, acting out a violent fantasy?
What historic era would you place Mario in?
