Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-Odyssey

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

Description

Kassandra across an adventure named Odessa, who claimed she was a descendant of the great Odysseus.

Dialogue

While exploring Odysseus' Palace, Kassandra came across a woman held in a cage.

  • Odessa: Hey, get me out of here!

Kassandra killed the surrounding bandits and freed Odessa.

  • Kassandra: Let's get out of here. Can you fight?
  • Odessa: I'd be happy to.

Kassandra escorted Odessa out of the palace ruins to safety.

  • Odessa: My thanks. I can't believe I let those malakes sneak up on me.
  • Kassandra: Ithaka is a dangerous place to wander around on your own.
  • Odessa: You're wandering around on your own.

Odessa turned and walked a few steps forward before stopping. She sighed.

  • Odessa: You're right. I can't fight a camp of bandits by myself. Could you help me get to Odysseus' palace? I can pay.
  • Kassandra: I'll help you get to the palace.
  • Odessa: Well, I'm in luck then. What do I call you?
  • Kassandra: Kassandra
  • Odessa: I'm Odessa. Named after the great Odysseus.

(If players choose "Why do you want to go to the palace?")

  • Kassandra: Why would you want to go up there?
  • Odessa: I'm a descendant of Odysseus. I'm on a pilgrimage.
  • Kassandra: You're a descendant of the former king of Ithaka?
  • Odessa: And the man who created the Trojan Horse and defeated the Cyclops The one who traveled to the land of the Lotus-Eaters. The one the Odyssey is about? Yes. I am. Why?
  • Kassandra: You're not the first who's said that, is all.
  • Odessa: Well, I trust I don't need to prove my lineage to get up to the palace.

(If players choose "Let's go.")

  • Kassandra: We should head to the palace while we have the chance.

Kassandra followed Odessa as they made their way to the palace ruins. They reached a small room.

  • Odessa: This... is it? It's just rubble.
  • Kassandra: What were you expecting?
  • Odessa: I don't know. Something more grand. My parents name me Odessa... I'm Odysseus' namesake. I thought if I came here I might... understand him more.
  • Kassandra: Well, do you?
  • Odessa: Not at all... Take me to my boat. I'll pay you there.

Kassandra escorted Odessa to her boat near the southeastern shore.

  • Odessa: Well, this is for you. Such a disappointment.
  • Kassandra: Why is that place so important for you?
  • Odessa: Are you joking? Odysseus lived there. Ruled there. He ended the Trojan War. Eluded Skylla and Charybdis. He had everything. Loyalty. Love. Fighting spirit!
  • Kassandra: He had the attention of the gods, too. That caused him a lot of trouble.
  • Odessa: And it made him a legend.

  • Kassandra: You aren 't a child. Stop acting like one.
  • Odessa: Wanting what Odysseus had without trying would be childish. I'm willing to do whatever is necessary.
  • Kassandra: That's easier said than done.
  • Odessa: Greatness is what I seek. It's what I've desired my entire life. I refuse to end up like everyone around me, content to go about their daily lives until they're forgotten iun death.

  • Kassandra: If you keep trying, you'll get there. Giving up guarantees you never will.
  • Odessa: You're the first one to encourage me like that.
  • Kassandra: Just know it's your decision to make.
  • Odessa: Greatness is what I seek. It's what I've desired my entire life. I refuse to end up like everyone around me, content to go about their daily lives until they're forgotten iun death.

  • Kassandra: You look cute right now. As if nothing can get in your way.
  • Odessa: I don't usually like being called cute.

  • Kassandra: There are a few other ones I can think of that would suit you.
  • Odessa: I can't wait to hear them.
  • Kassandra: How about beautiful? That works even better. The other ones will come later.
  • Odessa: I hope "later" comes soon.

  • Kassandra: In time you'll learn to love all the things I have to tell you.
  • Odessa: You seem so certain.
  • Kassandra: I've had lots of success in the past.
  • Odessa: I'm sure you have.

  • Kassandra: All right, you're ugly then.
  • Odessa: That's... not what I meant at all. I can't tell if you're serious or not.

  • Kassandra: So what do you think?
  • Odessa: I think I was a much poorer mood before now. There's just so much I desire. To be as great as Odysseus... Where do I even begin?

  • Kassandra: If you want Odysseus' greatness, you have to do it your own way. He was famous because of his cunning. What have you done?
  • Odessa: I've traveled all the way here!
  • Kassandra: To see the ruins of Odysseus' life. Not to live your own.
  • Odessa: I should have known better than to take advice from a mercenary. Leave me.

  • Kassandra: Odysseus didn't want to go to war. And once it was over, it took him ten years to get home. He wasted years of his life, all because gods interfered.
  • Kassandra: Stay home. Spend time with your family. Live your own life.
  • Odessa: But who will remember my story then?
  • Kassandra: Would you rather be remembered? Or happy?
  • Odessa: Hmm. I'll have to give that some thought. Thank you.

  • Kassandra: It seems like you're looking for advice. I have none to give.
  • Odessa: No surprise there. Well, thanks for the help.

Odessa left.

Outcome

Kassandra helped to free Odessa, escorting her as she explored the palace of Odysseus.

Trivia

  • A Small Odyssey is one of the quests that could be missed. If players missed the quest, they can still meet Odessa again in the memory A Family Ordeal. However, the dialogue will be slightly different.
