    This is the very first achievement you'll get, and there is no way you can miss it.

    At the very beginning of the game, Lucy will ask you to get into the animus, so go do so. You will now watch the birth of Ezio, and once he is held by his *father, you will have to press A to move your legs, B to move your arms, X to move your right arm, and Y to move your head. Once you are done with these simple tasks, you will unlock this achievement.

    *It might not be his father, I didn't hear what he said at first.

    Scrib Death*The mother calls the man, "My love," and he does name the child, so I'm pretty confident that he's the father.

    **I'm new to Assassin's Creed games so I'm open to the possibility that at some point Ezio's parentage comes into question for plot twist purposes. Perhaps later in this game, or in the dozen or so other games in the series. Is there a DLC Easter Egg where Maury comes in the birthing room and claims, "You are NOT the father!"?

    This is one of a few achievements that is impossible to miss. Right at the start of the game Lucy will ask you to get into the animus. Once inside you will get to watch a cutscene of Ezio being born. Once this happens and you will find the baby in his fathers arms. To proove your a fighter you will need to follow the on screen prompts. You will be asked to press A to move you legs, the B button to move your right arm, the X button to move your left arm and then finally the Y button to move your head. Once you have done these four simple things the achievement will unlock.
