A Horse, of Course was a virtual representation of one of Kassandra's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5 and a memory of Layla herself.

Description

Kassandra met with the horse breeder Nikaia to secure horses for the villagers.

Dialogue

  • Nikaia: If it isn't the new Eagle Bearer.
  • Kassandra: Trust me. I'm a lot better than the last one.
  • Nikaia: Look, you want to be useful, new Eagle Bearer? Get back the stallion the other one of you lost to the pirates.

(I'll get the stallion.)

  • Kassandra: I can get your stallion back, but we're going to need a lot more than one horse.
  • Nikaia: What for?
  • Kassandra: The pirates are coming, and at least with mounts, the villagers have a fighting chance.
  • Nikaia: Sure enough, but I bred this one just for Megakles himself. Without his stallion, he isn't riding into battle. You've ever seen a general strutting into battle?
  • Kassandra: Not a good one.
  • Nikaia: Exactly.

(If players choose, "Where is the stallion?")

  • Kassandra: Where did the stallion go?
  • Nikaia: That other Eagle Bearer rode him east past the Salts. Came back and said some bandits stole him in the night. Imagine that.

(If players choose, "What do you know about the other Eagle Bearer?")

  • Kassandra: I need to find this other Eagle Bearer.
  • Nikaia: Wouldn't mind giving him a piece of my mind, too. If you find him, punch his bird right in the beak for me.
  • Kassandra: His eagle?
  • Nikaia: Ha! It was barely a chicken.

(I'll be back with the stallion.)

  • Kassandra: I'll get back Megakles's stallion, then you and I are going to talk about getting horses for everyone in Alponos.

Kassandra leaves and heads out to the nearby Salty Bandits camp to rescue the stolen horse.

  • Kassandra: OK. Hopefully this goes better than last time.

Kassandra returns the horse to Nikaia at the top of a cliff.

  • Nikaia: Princess Purple Pie. You're back safe.

Kassandra speaks to Nikaia.

  • Kassandra: Here you go. When the real Eagle Bearer says she's going to do something, she does it.
  • Nikaia: There, there, Princess Purple Pie. Eat up. Let it flow through you.
  • Kassandra: What are you doing?
  • Nikaia: The first of you Eagle Bearers rode east to find this fruit. Said any horse that eats it turns into Pegasos. Leave it to the gods to hide it in plain sight!

  • Kassandra: The "Eagle Bearer" obviously lied to you.

  • Kassandra: Why not take a bite yourself? Maybe it'll turn you into a Pegasos, too.

  • Kassandra: I've heard of magic fruit left by Dionysos, but it just gets you drunk.

  • Nikaia: Don't believe me? For how much I paid, this fruit has to be real. Here, watch this.

Nikaia climbs onto Pegasos.

  • Kassandra: Wait!
  • Nikaia: Fly, Pegasos! Fly!

Nikaia rides off the cliff with her horse and plummets to her death while Kassandra runs after her, but fails to stop here in time.

  • Kassandra: These people are cursed. / This has been a long, long day.

Outcome

Kassandra recovered Princess Purple Pie from the bandits at Salty Bandits. Nikaia then jumped off a cliff together with the horse, being tricked by the imposter Eagle Bearer that her horse became Pegasos after eating a certain berry.
