A Bloody Feast was a virtual representation of one of Kassandra's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5.

Description

With an Olympic victory for Sparta and the Athenians dealt with in Boeotia, Kassandra met with the two kings. She changed Sparta forever when she accused one of them of being a Cult member.

Dialogue

Kassandra met with Myrrine in front of the throne room.

  • Kassandra: I'm here to face the kings.
  • Myrrine: Are you ready to take back our family's land?
  • Kassandra: Of course. But my purpose here is to bring down the Cultist king.
  • Myrrine: You make your mother proud, Kassandra.
  • Myrrine: But are you sure you have enough proof to accuse him?

  • Kassandra: I'm sure.

  • Kassandra: I don't know. Maybe I should look some more?
  • Myrrine: Accusing a king is not something you can take back. Make sure you're absolutely ready.

Kassandra left to gather more proof.

Satisfied, Myrrine laid out her plans.

  • Myrrine: I'll gather the ephors and meet you in the throne room.

(If players asked "Who are the ephors?")

  • Kassandra: Who are the ephors?

Myrrine was surprised.

  • Myrrine: You don't remember? Then again, you were only a child.
  • Myrrine: The five ephors are elected from the citizens of Sparta. They have power over even the kings. You need to convince them if you wish to save Sparta from the Cult's control.

(Leave – "See you there.")

  • Kassandra: See you in the throne room.

Inside the throne room, Archidamos of Sparta loudly let his impatience be known.

  • Archidamos: What are we waiting for?

Kassandra and Myrrine approached the two kings, with the five ephors flanking Myrrine.

  • Myrrine: Sorry to keep you waiting.
  • Archidamos: You summoned the ephors?
  • Pausanias: You must have achieved some success to earn this adoring crowd.

  • Kassandra: I brought home a wreath for Sparta, though I had to enter the Games and win it myself.
  • Pausanias: Very good. But what of our Pankration champion, Testikles?
  • Kassandra: There was an accident at sea before he could compete.
  • Archidamos: Games are hardly important. What about Boeotia?
  • Kassandra: Stentor and I defeated the Athenian forces. You have nothing to worry about.

  • Kassandra: The Athenian forces in Boeotia are no more. The land is yours.

Archidamos was elated.

  • Archidamos: That's excellent news.
  • Pausanias: I suppose you were too busy conquering territory to bring our champion to the Olympic Games?
  • Kassandra: I brought him to Elis... but he had an accident at sea.
  • Kassandra: So I entered the Games myself and won a wreath for Sparta.
  • Pausanias: By Nike! Well done, champion.

  • Archidamos: If you have nothing but good news to share, why did you call for the ephors?

One of the ephors stepped forward.

  • Ephor: We were told serious charges would be brought.

Pausanias seemed surprised.

  • Pausanias: Serious charges? Against whom?

  • Kassandra: You act as if you don't know. Against you, Pausanias.

Pausanias was speechless.

  • Kassandra: I have travelled Spartan lands and beyond and found proof of Pausanias's betrayal. He's a member of the Cult of Kosmos.

Pausanias' eyes shifted uncomfortably as Kassandra continued.

  • Kassandra: These traitors are willing to kill hundreds to rule thousands. Here's all the proof you need.

Kassandra reached into her pouch.

  • Archidamos: Proof? What proof?

Kassandra pulled a tablet from her pouch and handed it to one of the ephors. He examined it with haste and distress at the implication, but ultimately accepted Kassandra's proof and turned back to Pausanias.

  • Ephor: So the rumors are true... We never would have thought a king could be so dishonorable.
  • Pausanias: Honor belongs to history.

[To be determined]

  • Kassandra: You deserve death for your crimes.

Pausanias interrupted her angrily and stepped forward.

  • Pausanias: How dare you threaten a king?
  • Ephor: Pausanias, you are king no more. As of this day, you are exiled from Sparta.

Pausanias was seized by the guards present and escorted out of the throne room, shouting.

  • Pausanias: Before Athena and Ares, I swear you'll regret this! Justice will be done!
  • Kassandra: You'll have your justice, puppet king.

The ephor handed the tablet to Archidamos to examine as Myrrine went to Kassandra's side.

  • Myrrine: Forgive us, my king. My daughter couldn't let him stay in power any longer.

Archidamos nodded as he looked at the tablet.

  • Archidamos: Of course not.
  • Archidamos: You've more than earned your citizenship. Sparta owes you thanks and releases your home unto you.

Kassandra turned to her mother, excited for her.

  • Kassandra: Your home is returned!
  • Myrrine: Our home, lamb.
  • Myrrine: Let's leave the court to its business. We'll talk outside.

Kassandra and Myrrine left the throne room as Archidamos sat down on his throne, stunned by the turn of events.

Outside, they spoke.

  • Myrrine: As for Pausanias, it would be wise to deal with him as soon as possible.
  • Kassandra: I will. He is a Cultist after all.
  • Myrrine: When you've dealt with him, meet me at home.
  • Kassandra: With pleasure.

Myrrine left Kassandra to do what she had to do.

  • Kassandra: King Pausanias is part of the Cult of Kosmos. I'll have to kill him myself.

Ikaros tracked Pausanias down as he fled south through the Forest of Eurotas, along the road to the Village of Gytheion.

  • Kassandra: There's Pausanias. Maláka.

Kassandra fought and slew Pausanias.

[Placeholder for failed accusation outcome]

Regardless, Pausanias was exposed and slain, and Myrrine and Kassandra returned to the home they had not seen in 17 years.

(Nikolaos alive)
Myrrine noted that something was missing.
  • Myrrine: It's gone...
  • Kassandra: What's gone?
  • Myrrine: There was a skull here, a small rabbit skull. From your first hunt.
  • Kassandra: Why would someone take that?
  • Myrrine: There is only one person who would have taken it. Nikolaos...

  • Kassandra: Maybe seeing each other again made him think of this place. It did the same to me.
  • Myrrine: Seems I wasn't the only one yearning for home.

  • Kassandra: This house has been vacant for a long time. Many robbers could have come and gone.
  • Myrrine: They would have no reason to take an old rabbit skull.
  • Kassandra: Maybe they thought it was valuable. It was on display, after all.
  • Myrrine: Perhaps...

As they settled in, Brasidas arrived at the house, knocking on the door frame.

  • Brasidas: I hope I'm not intruding.
  • Kassandra: Brasidas! Come in!

Brasidas entered the house.

  • Brasidas: It's good to see the two of you back home.
  • Myrrine: It feels good to be here.
  • Kassandra: You're here instead of in training, what's wrong?
  • Brasidas: I'm heading to Pylos as soon as I can. I think you may want to come as well.

  • Kassandra: I'd be happy to return the favor. What's waiting for us in Pylos?
  • Brasidas: Glory. The Athenians are pushing the Spartans back even as we speak. It would be a devastating loss for Sparta, and I can't allow that to happen.
  • Kassandra: It sounds like you've lost confidence in Sparta's warriors.
  • Brasidas: They're as strong as they've ever been. But now they're facing a power they can't even imagine.
  • Myrrine: Do you mean Deimos?

Brasidas nodded.

  • Brasidas: Yes, that's what the rumors say. A force of nature in the body of a mortal, who can cut down any soldier in his path.

  • Kassandra: We've finally gotten our home back, and you want me to leave?
  • Brasidas: The Cultists appear to have lost their patience. Their moves in Pylos are bold and ruthless.
  • Myrrine: Is Deimos there?
  • Brasidas: I've heard rumors. If they're true, not even a phalanx of Spartans could stop him.

  • Kassandra: If Deimos is in Pylos, we have to stop him.
  • Brasidas: I'll wait for you at the ship, but be quick. Each moment we waste is another Spartan dead.

Brasidas left the house. Myrrine turned to Kassandra with hope.

  • Myrrine: Alexios is in Pylos...
  • Myrrine: You have to bring him back, Kassandra.

Kassandra was incredulous.

  • Kassandra: Bring him back?
  • Myrrine: We have our home again. We can be a family. It isn't too late.

Myrrine took Kassandra's hand, hopeful of her answer.

  • Kassandra: I'll bring him back. No matter what.
  • Myrrine: This is serious, Kassandra. We may not get another chance.
  • Kassandra: I understand. He must have seen the Cultists for what they truly are by now.
  • Myrrine: It doesn't matter what you have to do. Bring back your brother. You must.
  • Kassandra: Nothing will stop me.
  • Kassandra: I shouldn't keep Brasidas waiting.

Myrrine bid her farewell.

  • Myrrine: Be safe, Kassandra.

  • Kassandra: I'll do what I can, mater, but I can't promise anything.
  • Myrrine: Please, don't say that, yet.
  • Kassandra: The Cult of Kosmos has had too much time with him. He is beyond reason.
  • Myrrine: Isn't it worth trying everything we can?
  • Kassandra: And if I can't save my brother?
  • Myrrine: Then we will have tried. We thought him dead for so long. I refuse to give up just yet.
  • Kassandra: I'll do what I can. I should leave for Pylos now.

Myrrine frowned slightly.

  • Myrrine: Be safe, Kassandra.

  • Kassandra: I can't do it. I wish I could tell you otherwise, but he's too far gone.
  • Myrrine: That can't be true. You both have the same blood coursing through your veins.
  • Kassandra: There's nothing we can do. He sees us as nothing more than obstacles in his path.
  • Myrrine: You can't just give up on family so easily. You didn't give up on me.
  • Kassandra: We haven't been a family since I was thrown from that mountain. I won't pretend that bringing Deimos back will unmake the past.
  • Myrrine: You're giving up on your own brother. On us?
  • Kassandra: It's too late, mater. I can't save him. He's made his choice.
  • Myrrine: The Cult of Kosmos never gave him one. We've thought him dead once, and you're choosing to kill him again.
  • Kassandra: I should go... Brasidas won't wait for long.

Outcome

Kassandra killed Pausanias, one of the two kings of Sparta and secretly a Sage of the Cult of Kosmos, exposing his corruption in the process and winning back her and Myrrine's Spartan citizenship and home. Upon settling back in, Brasidas informed her that Deimos was in Pylos, and Kassandra had to make a difficult choice regarding her brother's fate.
