I wonder if it's significant that Altair's ring finger is removed for use of his concealed blade. I doubt assassins married, therefore probably didn't father too many children. So I wonder if the ancestry link to Ezio and Desmond is more of a Brotherhood thing or actual blood relation. Any thoughts?

They are blood-related. They would have to be. The Animus would not work with Desmond for Altair's memories if the two were not blood-related. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

yeah, Altair and Ezio are blood relations of Desmond, but Altair and Ezio are not necessarily related

not in all cultures do men have to wear a ring as women do, right?

well, men wore it as a matter of choice -- in Ezio's case it is probably a signet ring to seal documents with his family's crest on it to prove identity. so more than just a jewel accessory.

What type of guy? To have children without being "married"? "Marriage" was made up by people. It does absolutely nothing.
