|~ Checco's dying words.|
Checco Orsi is an antagonist who appears in Assassin's Creed II, serving as one of the two main antagonists of the "Battle of Forli" downloadable content pack. He, along with his brother Ludovico Orsi, originally loan sharks and hitmen for hire, are the ones who are responsible for the Templar invasion of Forli.
He was voiced by Andreas Apergis.
The brothers were hired by Caterina Sforza to kill her own husband, Girolamo Riario, after she found out that he was a Templar Order. Riario, who was already in debt to the Orsi brothers, was killed by them during a meal.
Later on, Rodrigo Borgia hired them to kill Caterina and obtain the map Riario had made of the Codex pages. The Orsi agreed, and laid siege to the city of Forlì. In the process, they captured two of Caterina's children, Bianca and Ottaviano, and found out that Ezio Auditore da Firenze, who was in possession of the Apple of Eden, was involved as well.
Using the two as a distraction for Ezio, Checco attacked the Rocca di Ravaldino (the ward in which Caterina was holding the Apple) after the Assassin had left to rescue the children. Caterina and Niccolò Machiavelli's resistance was not enough to protect the Piece of Eden, and Checco claimed it for himself.
Ezio chased after Checco as he fled to deliver the Apple to Rodrigo Borgia, and managed to intercept and assassinate him. However, with his dying breath, Checco stabbed Ezio in the right side of the stomach.
