Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-Odyssey

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

Description

After returning to the plague-striken city of Athens, Kassandra met Hippokrates, who did his own part to combat the plague.

Dialogue

Upon her return to Athens to speak with Aspasia, Kassandra encountered Hippokrates.

  • Kassandra: Hippokrates, it's good you're here.
  • Hippokrates: Is it? Look around you. Athens is dying...

(If players asked "What is happening here?")

  • Kassandra: What do you think is going on?
  • Hippokrates: I don't know. What I do know is that it kills without discrimination. Rich, poor, philosopher, or farmer—and I'm helpless to stop it.

(If players asked "What is happening to everyone?")

  • Kassandra: What's happening to the victims?
  • Hippokrates: Leaking, pustulant rashes, raging fevers, pallid, sweaty skin. I find many dying in their own excrement.

(If players chose "There must be something you can do.")

  • Kassandra: Is there nothing that can be done?
  • Hippokrates: I try and ease the suffering where I can.
  • Hippokrates: The plague is spreading through the victims' excretions—I'm sure of it. The bodies must be burned.

(If players chose "Athens is lucky to have you.")

  • Kassandra: Your compassion for the people has always inspired me.
  • Hippokrates: Unfortunately compassion is all I have to give. The gods have shown me how arrogant I had become.
  • Kassandra: We're only mortal, and the gods like to remind us whenever they can.

(If players chose "You could get sick.")

  • Kassandra: What if you get sick?
  • Hippokrates: It seems I am immune.
  • Kassandra: Then you can continue to give comfort to those who aren't.

Regardless, Hippokrates asked Kassandra for help with his work.

  • Hippokrates: I need help burning the bodies, Kassandra. Fanatics are roaming the streets, trying to stop me in my work.
  • Kassandra: What fanatics?
  • Hippokrates: The Followers of Ares—superstitious fools. They believe burning the dead is sacrilege, and attacked me. Can you believe it?

(Accept – "I'll help.")

  • Kassandra: These Followers of Ares don't worry me. I'll help burn the bodies.

Kassandra gathered the bodies one at a time and tossed them onto the funeral pyres. Followers of Ares and even some of the dogs attacked her as she worked, but she dispatched them all the same.

  • Kassandra: That's all of them.

Outcome

Kassandra briefly helped Hippokrates during the Plague of Athens, then resumed her initial odyssey.
