Athens's Last Hope
Athens had never looked more unlike itself. Chaos ran rampant in the streets, Phoibe was dead, Perikles missing, and Aspasia was desperate to take him out of Athens. Kassandra had to persist.
Athens's Last Hope was a virtual representation of one of Kassandra's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5.
Amidst the chaos that seemed to have engulfed the city of
Athens, Kassandra pushed on.
Kassandra made her way up to the
Parthenon, meeting Aspasia outside.
Aspasia: There you are, Kassandra. Quickly—
Perikles may be inside.
Kassandra closed her eyes, turning her face to the ground, unable to look Aspasia in the eye.
Aspasia: What's gotten into you?
Phoibe is dead. She's dead because you sent her to do your work. Aspasia: No, I... it's not true. Phoibe wanted to go. She told me she would be all right.
Kassandra: And you believed a child.
Aspasia: You know Phoibe—she wouldn't have taken no for an answer. It was out of my hands.
Kassandra: Out of your hands? You sent her away. You could have protected her.
Aspasia: What I asked of her was needed to protect Perikles. She lived to help others, Kassandra. She lived to help you.
Kassandra: I know that.
Aspasia: That doesn't take anything away from the tragedy. She was a special girl.
Kassandra: That doesn't matter. She had to sacrifice herself for others, over and over...
Aspasia: And those who sacrifice themselves deserve more glory than any other. She is a hero in her own right.
Kassandra: I hope she knew that.
Kassandra: It's a tragedy. She should be here.
Aspasia: Of course she should. But you know the cost of living this life.
Kassandra: I do. But did Phoibe?
Kassandra: Phoibe was killed. By
Cult guards. Before I could get to her. Aspasia: Oh, no. Dear Phoibe.
Kassandra: She died alone in the street.
Aspasia: No, you found her—she wasn't alone. I know how much of a friend she was to you.
Kassandra: I won't let them get away with this.
Aspasia: You have to fight. For her.
Sokrates and Hippokrates caught up with Kassandra.
Hippokrates: Aspasia, you're here.
Sokrates: Any sign of Perikles?
Aspasia: If he's here, he's inside praying. He refused to stay safe in the
villa. Hippokrates: Things have gotten even worse in the agora. It's madness.
Sokrates: Speak later and act now. Perikles—
The group hearing a commotion in the temple
They heard a commotion within the Parthenon, and Perikles' voice amidst it.
The four entered the Parthenon to witness
Deimos crouched over a bleeding Perikles and murmuring to him.
Deimos: I'm going to destroy everything you ever created. Athens is mine.
He restrained Perikles and looked up at the four, smiling. Kassandra extended her arm to keep the other three back. Aspasia tried to run to him, but Sokrates and Hippokrates quickly restrained her.
Deimos stared them down as he wielded his
sword and drew it across Perikles' throat. He let the body fall and stood up as Kassandra drew the Spear of Leonidas. He simply shook the blood from the blade as two Cult guards stepped forward.
Deimos: Stay out of my way!
Aspasia grieving Perikles' death
Deimos walked off as Kassandra was left to face the two Cult guards as Sokrates and Hippokrates held a grief-struck Aspasia. After Kassandra dealt with the guards, Aspasia knelt by Perikles' corpse.
Aspasia: All is lost now.
Hippokrates: He was a great man. Perhaps greater than we even knew.
Sokrates looked over to Kassandra.
Sokrates: We need to get her out of Athens.
Kassandra: We'll take my
She looked down at Aspasia, who rose to her feet as Kassandra spoke.
Kassandra: We have to leave. Don't let him in die in vain.
The group arriving at the port
The four made their way to the
Port of Piraeus, where the Adrestia was docked.
Aspasia: We have to move quickly.
Kassandra: Stay close. Just in case.
Before they could board the ship, a contingent of Athenian soldiers accosted them.
Kleon's men confronting the group
They turned to face him.
Kleon has ordered that no one leave Athens. And he wants Aspasia brought to him. Aspasia: I'm not going.
Kassandra signaled to her companions.
She stood against the soldiers as the three withdrew to safety.
Athenian Strategos: Don't let them go!
Kassandra dispatched the Athenian soldiers as the
Adrestia was made ready to sail.
Kassandra: It's all clear now. Let's go.
Hippokrates and Sokrates discussed something and then revealed their decision to the women.
Hippokrates: We're going to stay, Kassandra.
Kassandra: What? Why?
Hippokrates: My work is here. I can't leave the Athenians in the state they're in.
Sokrates: You don't need us to protect Aspasia. Leave Athens to us.
Kassandra: The city has been taken. This isn't the Athens you used to know.
Sokrates: That is why I must stay. We must begin again.
Kassandra: You saw what happened to Perikles. You want the same to happen to you?
Sokrates: If every dissenting voice disappears, the people won't turn against him. They need me here.
Aspasia and Kassandra parting ways with Hippokrates and Sokrates
Kassandra made sure they wanted to stay.
Kassandra: You're sure?
Sokrates: I have lived as an Athenian, and I will die as an Athenian.
Kassandra: Then do something for me. Both of you.
Hippokrates: Of course.
Kassandra: Retrieve Phoibe's body. Give her a proper burial.
Sokrates: Everything she deserves and more.
Kassandra: Thank you.
Aspasia: Time to go, Kassandra.
They stood in the
Adrestia's shadow and turned back to the men.
Kassandra: And I expect to see you both again—alive.
Hippokrates waved and Sokrates bowed. The women boarded the ship and cast off from Athens. At sea, the
sun rose. Aspasia stared back at the city with sadness. Kassandra walked up to her.
Aspasia: The farther we get from Athens, the quieter it grows. As though it's peaceful. But I know better.
Kassandra: I'm sorry, Aspasia. About Perikles. And Athens.
Aspasia: You have no need to apologize. For anything.
Kassandra: I did everything I could to keep people safe.
Aspasia: No one thinks otherwise, Kassandra. The Cult of Kosmos simply had a plan we didn't see soon enough. And they struck when the time was right.
Kassandra: It feels like... I let everyone down. I didn't get to them quick enough. Didn't make the right decisions.
Aspasia: It's not your fault. There's no one to blame but the Cult of Kosmos.
(Additionally, if players blamed Aspasia for Phoibe's death)
Kassandra: About Phoibe...
Aspasia: No, allow me. Phoibe was my responsibility. I should have kept her closer to me. It was a mistake.
Kassandra: No, I wanted to apologize. It wasn't your fault. I'm sorry.
Aspasia: Yet another murder to the Cult's credit.
Kassandra vowed revenge against the Cult.
Kassandra: I'll make each of them beg for mercy before I kill them.
Aspasia: That time will come. For now, let us look to the future. Do you have a heading?
Kassandra: I was hoping you would help me with that.
Aspasia: Yes, of course. This woman...
Phoenix. Her ship was called Siren Song. Aspasia: Phoenix. Yes, I know the name. Last anyone heard, her ship was docked on the island of
Aspasia and Kassandra making plans to travel to Naxos
Aspasia gestured to Naxos on the map painted onto the ship's deck.
Kassandra: Then, we go to Naxos... to see Phoenix.
Perikles perished during the Plague of Athens of 429 BCE, allowing Kleon to seize power in the city. With Kassandra's aid, Aspasia escaped to sea before Kleon could capture her.
Kassandra learned the location of Phoenix, the moniker used by her mother Myrrine, and set sail with Aspasia to reunite with her.
