Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-Odyssey

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

Description

Kassandra was tasked with finding an asphodel flower to heal a woman who thought she was still sick.

Dialogue

After helping the lost soldier, Kassandra returned to Charon at the docks.

  • Kassandra: I'm ready to help another of your lost dead.
  • Charon: My my, aren't you a productive little fleshling. Tell me, how did things go with the Athenian?

  • Kassandra: Athens meant everything to him. I spared him the truth.
  • Charon: You brought comfort to a troubled soul.
  • Kassandra: I couldn't tell him the plague destroyed everything he loved.

  • Kassandra: I told him about the plague.
  • Charon: You chose to torture an already troubled soul.
  • Kassandra: He loved Athens and its people, but he needed to know the truth.

  • Charon: Ah, the plague. Busy times... So busy I lost someone, a woman whose family couldn't bear to burn the body.
  • Kassandra: So she's stuck down here.
  • Charon: She now wanders the halls of the Passage of Souls, still sick with plague. The Thanatos Pyre can purify the dead, but the only way she'd survive the ordeal is by consuming an Asphodel flower.

(Asked "Where do I find the flower?")

  • Kassandra: An Asphodel flower.
  • Charon: My little fleshling is in luck! Due to all the chaos you cause, there is a breach between the underworld and Elysium. You might find a flower there.

(Asked "What does the flower do?")

  • Kassandra: What makes this Asphodel flower so special?
  • Charon: Everything from Elysium, that sickengly perfect paradise, has some kind of boon.

(Leave – "I'll get the flower.")

  • Kassandra: I'll get the flower and make sure she reaches the pyre.
  • Charon: Be careful out there. Something as rare as an Asphodel flower in this place will surely draw a great deal of attention.

Kassandra headed to the breach, located at the eastern part of the Scorched Lands. Ikaros found the entrance.

The Asphodel flower on the ground

  • Kassandra: Here we are.

Heading through the breach, she encountered and killed numerous Hounds of Hades. She continued her way through.

  • Kassandra: The air feels different here. Reminds me of Elysium.

She found the flower on the ground.

  • Kassandra: That's what I'm looking for.

Kassandra found by Testikles

Kassandra stepped forward to pick up the flower. Afterwards, she heard someone approaching behind and turned around to face them, hiding the flower in her hands.

  • Kassandra: Testikles. It's nice to see you in one piece.
  • Testikles: Misthios. Yes, I likes it. Nothing's trying to eat Testikles.

A pack of hounds of Hades eyed him from afar.

  • Kassandra: What are you doing here?
  • Testikles: Came looking for a flower... Sounded so pretty. Wanted pretty flower oil. Have you seen it?

  • Kassandra: I have the Asphodel flower. I need it to save someone who's sick.
  • Testikles: But I needs the flower, misthios. I came all this way to get it. And I will.

The Hounds of Hades lunged themselves at Testikles, killing him.

  • Kassandra: No flower for Testikles.

  • Kassandra: I don't think anything pretty grows in a place like this.

Kassandra secretly dropped the flower to the ground.

  • Testikles: You're right. Testikles is the only pretty thing here.
  • Kassandra: Right. Well, it was nice seeing you.
  • Testikles: No hug this time, OK?

The Hounds of Hades lunged themselves at Testikles, killing him. Kassandra picked up the flower.

  • Kassandra: Take care of yourself, Testikles.

Testikles' being killed by the hounds

Kassandra eliminated the hounds and looted Testikles' body before heading off to Hades' Palace to find the plague victim. Ikaros found her at a camp designated for the plague victims on the cliff above the Stables of the Immortal Stallions.

  • Kassandra: There she is!

Kassandra entered the camp.

  • Kassandra: How can the dead bear it here?

Kassandra approached the plague victim.

  • Lost Woman: Please, stay back. I'm very sick.
  • Kassandra: I've been sent to help you get better.
  • Lost Woman: Nothing can cure me. Even here I'm cursed by this plague.

(Asked "What do you remember?")

  • Kassandra: Do you remember anything of your life before?
  • Lost Woman: I used to bake the best-smelling bread. It's all like a dream that I can't quite see or touch.

(Asked "How did you get here?")

  • Kassandra: How did you get here?
  • Lost Woman: I remember being in my bed. I was... sick. Everything went dark, then I was by a river surrounded by people waiting to cross.

The woman eating the flower

(Chose "Eat this flower.")

  • Kassandra: Here, eat this flower. It will help you feel strong.

Kassandra gave the flower to the woman, who ate it.

  • Lost Woman: I feel... different. I feel better.

She inspected her hands.

  • Lost Woman: But the plague is still with me.
  • Kassandra: I will take you to a place where you can feel better. There is a fire that will cleanse you.
  • Lost Woman: A fire! Are you sure it will help me? Won't it hurt?
  • Kassandra: The flower you ate will protect you.
  • Lost Woman: If this is the only way, then I suppose I have to try.

The woman cleansed of the plague

Kassandra followed the woman out of the palace.

  • Lost Woman: Am I cursed to be sick forever?

Kassandra escorted the woman up the akropolis to the pyre. Along the way, she killed numerous guards. They reached the Thanatos Pyre, which burned with a large blue flame.

  • Lost Woman: Look! The pyre. We've reached it.

With the coast clear, they approached the fire.

  • Kassandra: Strange. This fire gives off no heat.

They stood before the flame. Kassandra nodded to the woman, who walked into the fire and knelt. The woman moaned in pain, and Kassandra winced and looked away. However, the woman's body was cleansed of the plague, and she emerged with her skin restored. She and Kassandra smiled, and Kassandra placed her hand on the woman's shoulder in solidarity.

Outcome

Kassandra recovered an asphodel flower and gave it to the sick woman to regain her strength. She then escorted her to a pyre to be cleansed of the plague.

Behind the scenes

  • If Achilles has not been found, Hades will appear and offer to take the flower from Kassandra in exchange for the hero's location. Handing the flower over to Hades will prematurely end the memory.
  • The woman can die en route to the pyre. It may behoove players to simply charge past the guards on horseback, as the plague victim will ride on the same horse as the Eagle Bearer.
