So is Cesare, though, really, he looks insanely creepy. I loved how evil Lee looked and was, but at the end of the day, I think he falls short of the best bad guy for this franchise. For starters (and I realize this is before Cesare was introduced but he obviously had a part in it), the Borgias wouldn't have let Connor live in the forest, they would've killed him without hesitation just like they did with Petruccio, Ezio's adolescent brother who Rodrigo admits "didn't need to die, I just killed him (them) to prove a point"
Not to mention, Lee just gives up at the end and submits to his own death, whereas Cesare is in total God complex mode, trying to kill you in the middle of a burning city with him basically saying that he's immortal and you can't kill him. Plus, you don't fuck your sister or kill your dad (regardless of his dad being an insane twat too), extra heel points for that.
