This article is about the memory of Kassandra in Melos. You may be looking for another memory of Kassandra in Mykonos.

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

Description

Kassandra spoke to Drakios to take part in the Battle of One Hundred Hands, on the suggestion of her friend, Roxana.

Dialogue

Kassandra approached Drakios as he spoke to a crowd of people.

  • Drakios: Warriors! Heroes! Mercenaries of all types! Sign up here for the Battle of One Hundred Hands. Would you like to be rich? Are you the next Champion? You, misthios. You look like a true contender.

Kassandra engaged Drakios in conversation.

  • Kassandra: I met Roxana on Hydrea. She says you're the one to talk to about entering the battle on Melos.
  • Drakios: Indeed I am. My name's Drakios.
  • Kassandra: Kassandra. I'm interested in competing in this... What did you call it?
  • Drakios: The Battle of One Hundred Hands draws warriors from all corners of the Greek world to compete for a large purse. But as competitions go, it's also very deadly—a last person standing type of affair.

  • Kassandra: Killing is how I make my drachmae. This battle will be no different.
  • Drakios: It's true. You have the look of a mythical hero about you...
  • Kassandra: I expect future generations to sing songs in my honor.

  • Kassandra: I do my best work in the shadows. Not sure how I'd fare on an open battlefield.
  • Drakios: It's true that only the best-trained have a hope of glory in the Battle of One Hundred Hands.
  • Kassandra: I make no promises.

  • Drakios: If you join the Battle, you'll have the chance to prove your mettle against the best. And because the Battle is backed by the most powerful and influential people in the Greek world, the purse is always growing.
  • Kassandra: If you mean the people I think you mean, then I would like to meet them and... have a few words.
  • Drakios: Indeed. They are the kind of people I would never speak about openly. You know, you do look like someone I've met before, another fierce warrior. Family resemblance, perhaps?
  • Kassandra: You mean Deimos? Then this Battle is backed by the Cult.
  • Drakios: Of course I can't talk about that. Not with any old challenger. But become the Champion of the Battle of One Hundred Hands, and I'll tell you all I know.
  • Kassandra: I want to fight in the Battle.
  • Drakios: I thought you might. The only rule is that every competitor must train with another competitor, and they must vouch for each other.
  • Kassandra: I've already met Roxana on Hydrea.
  • Drakios: So I've heard. She was going to be my top recommendation as she's amongst our highest-ranked contenders. If you can train with her, then there is certainly a place for you in the Battle.

(If players choose "How did this tradition begin?")

  • Kassandra: What started the tradition of a free-for-all battle on Melos?
  • Drakios: I started it with some financial support from the powerful people I mentioned. The metaphor is that each combatant is battling a Hecatoncheir.
  • Kassandra: The creature with fifty heads and one hundred hands.
  • Drakios: Indeed. By defeating all the competitors, it's as if the Champion has slain the creature itself - quite an achievement. Not something to be attempted by the weak.
  • Kassandra: Indeed.

(If players choose "What can you tell me about Roxana?")

  • Kassandra: What do you know about Roxana?
  • Drakios: She's from a long line of aspiring champions. Indeed, virtually her entire family has tried to win the Battle of One Hundred Hands.
  • Kassandra: Aspiring champions.
  • Drakios: None of them were as skilled as Roxana, it must be said.

(If players choose "How did you get involved in the Battle?")

  • Kassandra: How did you become the person who organizes the Battle?
  • Drakios: I was an up-and-coming merchant in these parts... Down on my luck, it turned out. Owed a few favors, then some powerful people called in those favors. Turned out to be good for me. Blood sports are big business on Melos.
  • Kassandra: These powerful people you mentioned. They're the Cult of Kosmos, aren't they?
  • Drakios: The mysterious ones. You want to meet them. I know, but it will have to wait.
  • Kassandra: How long?
  • Drakios: I stay close with all of my champions. If you win the Battle, it's something we can discuss over victory wine.
  • Kassandra: I'm ready to compete.
  • Drakios: Indeed. Roxana tells me your training went well. Meet me inside the city gates. The Battle will begin soon.

Outcome

Kassandra was permitted to enter the Battle of One Hundred Hands.

Trivia

  • It is entirely possible for the player to start this quest before meeting Roxana on Hydrea. While Drakios will encourage the player to meet up with her, the player can gain access to the Battle of One Hundred Hands by paying him 4500 drachmae, thus skipping the Sparring with Roxana, Archery Practice and Foot Race quests, which will affect the final confrontation in Legend No More.
