While exploring the Constantine district, north of the Romani HQ, but south of the blacksmith's shop I found a small courtyard with a well wherein a drunk man is... well, being drunk. Every time I approach this courtyard, there he is, being drunk. The problem is he's got a red target on top of his head, which usually means he's part of some mission.

I first noticed him during the Master Assassin mission, "The Trickster, Part 2" where I was tailing a rogue Romani. I poisoned him then, thinking he was related to the quest. However, I still had to kill the Romani in order to complete the quest.

I've poisoned him, stabbed him a dozen ways, arrowed him, bombed him, called assassins on him, grabbed him and thrown him, tripped him, etc, and I can't seem to figure out what he's for and why he's on my radar as a target. Every time he dies, if I leave the area he resets. Killing him is worth about 20% awareness as well.

It's been several saves/reloads since I first encountered him, and there he is, enjoying his wine and staggering about. What's the point of this guy?

Is this just a glitch, or is there some mission I need him for?

Obligatory "wish we had the murder tag still" comment. – Doozer Blake Dec 18 '11 at 18:17
@DoozerBlake I think fisticuffs would be more appropriate in this case. – CyberSkull Dec 18 '11 at 19:12
he's stuck in Groundhog Day :) – Alex Mar 12 '12 at 12:30

This guy is related to an acheivement.

Beat his face up. That's it. With your fists, I shall add.

Storyline wise, I think it's the ex husband of your sister, if I remember well.

I shall add his wiki page, for story's sake.

I was going to ask where I find Duccio for this achievement, but apparently the answer to this question answers that question as well. It's a two-fer! – agent86 Dec 19 '11 at 0:21
+1 for learning this is actually Duccio. I've just been stabbing him repeatedly. – Keaanu Jan 6 '12 at 16:11

This is Duccio, he appeared in the previous 2 AC games. He was Ezio's sister's fiancee but cheated on her. You can beat him up (fists) for an achievement/trophy (on the x360 and PS3, respectively), and he won't come back again

so...does that mean we won't be able to kill him anymore? :( – Alex Mar 12 '12 at 12:30
Maybe you can beat up his ancestors in AC3 :) – JohnoBoy Mar 12 '12 at 12:34
