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

Description

Following Barnabas' lotus flower inspired vision, the Adrestia set sail towards Kos.

Dialogue

As they neared Kos, Barnabas grew excited.

  • Barnabas: That's Kos! I recognize it from my vision. A painted wall guards a siren's den there. Be careful!

Kassandra disembarked, and explored Pharmakeia Bay on Kos. Eventually she found her way to an old, decrepit wall with a worn painting: the entrance to the Tomb of Polybotes. She broke through it and entered the tomb. Behind her, the wall collapsed. An eerie sound reverberated through the stone walls.

  • Kassandra: That sound... Are there actual sirens here?

(If beeswax in possession.)

    • Kassandra: I should put the beeswax in my ears, just in case.

Kassandra commenced to explore the tomb. From the depths, pained cries echoed.

  • Unknown: Aarrrgggghhhhh

Within the hallways of the tomb, hurt or dead people laid. Kassandra passed them by. In a chamber, she found female Followers of Ares, and slew them. In the furthermost chamber was their leader, standing before an altar. Kassandra killed her as well.

She discovered an aulos on the priestess.

  • Kassandra: An aulos. Looks old.

A man approached Kassandra as she stood above her kill.

  • Eurylochos: Please... don't hurt us.
  • Kassandra: I'm not going to hurt you, I will free you. What are you doing here?
  • Eurylochos: My whole life, I heard tales of the siren song - a sound so sweet men would gladly die to hear it. You have no idea how dull life is for a fisherman with a love of poetry and music.
  • Kassandra: You chose to be here?
  • Eurylochos: I... I didn't know this is what I would find. By the time I realized, there was no escape.

("What do you know about this aulos?")

  • Kassandra: I found this aulos. What do you know about it?
  • Eurylochos: That one was special. They stole it from the woman who escaped. But that was a long time ago.

("Who are these women?")

  • Kassandra: This tomb is full of bloodthirsty women. Who are they?
  • Eurylochos: No one speaks. They drain my blood, then boil and drink it. In their rituals, they scream into the night. I'm so tired, but I never sleep. Please, save me.

("Why are you here again?")

  • Kassandra: So, what are you doing here?
  • Eurylochos: My whole life, I heard tales of the siren song - a sound so sweet men would gladly die to hear it. You have no idea how dull life is for a fisherman with a love of poetry and music.

(Leave - I'm getting you out of here.)

  • Kassandra: You can't stay here. Join my crew. A man named Barnabas will greet you on my ship.

Kassandra left the tomb and rejoined an eager Barnabas on the Adrestia.

(Leave, if To Be Nobody completed - I know someone you should meet.)

  • Kassandra: You're obsessed with poetry and you're a fisherman. I have an opportunity for you to have both those things, without being held like some animal.
  • Eurylochos: Anything would be better than this.

  • Kassandra: Come with me.

The scene shifted to Anaphi, where she addressed Polyphemos.

  • Kassandra: I can't stay with you, big guy, but I think I found someone you should meet.

She introduced Eurylochos to Polyphemos.

  • Kassandra: Eurylochos, this is Polyphemos. Polyphemos, Eurylochos.

Polyphemos regarded Eurylochos.

  • Polyphemos: Show you cave?
  • Eurylochos: Show me everything, my big friend. This is the grandest, most spectacular shore on which I've ever laid my weary eyes. I want to see it all!

As Eurylochos went to admire the shore, Polyphemos addressed Kassandra.

  • Polyphemos: You Little. But big heart. Take this. Special gift.

(Epic grade Scaled Gauntlets received.)

  • Kassandra: Meet me at my ship, the Adrestia. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
  • Eurylochos: It's been so long since I was shown kindness. My thanks.

  • Barnabas: About my Leda, do you have any news?

("I found this aulos.")

  • Kassandra: I found this aulos on a "siren"... if you could call her that.
  • Barnabas: An aulos! My wife always loved these. I bet she learned to play it alongside the sirens as they sung men to their deaths. Just like her.

  • Kassandra: I'll bet the sirens and Leda were good friends.
  • Barnabas: She was so mesmerizing. Her song always worked on me.

  • Kassandra: There were no sirens, just bloodthirsty priestesses. And this aulos? It could be anybody's.
  • Barnabas: Then how did we know where to look? It's a clue, and Persephone led us right to it.

Barnabas took the aulos.

Outcome

Kassandra explored the Tomb of Polybotes in order to find something about Leda. Instead, she ended the rule of the Followers of Ares therein and freed their prisoners, including Eurylochos.
