Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-Odyssey

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

Description

Kassandra met with Gelon, whose ship and crew had gone missing.

Dialogue

Off the coast of Kirrha, Kassandra found a woman grumbling to herself.

  • Gelon: Fuck 'em, fuck 'em all. Gods, oracles, and especially pi—sailors.

Kassandra spoke to her.

  • Kassandra: What's your problem?
  • Gelon: What don't I have fucking problems with? The Oracle, for one. The sea, for another. And don't get me started on my crew.
  • Kassandra: You have business with the Oracle? You're a long way from Delphi.
  • Gelon: Had business. And my business is none of your fucking business. I ain't shopping for a merc'. If anything, I need the gods.

  • Kassandra: You need a god? I'm the next best thing.
  • Gelon: Oh, you're a live one. That's a good pitch, I'll give you that.

  • Kassandra: If you want something done, you'll have to do it yourself.
  • Gelon: You're right there. Can't trust the gods or their servants.

  • Kassandra: So who are you?
  • Gelon: Captain Gelon, of the Shark's Tooth.
  • Kassandra: Shark Tooth's your boat?
  • Gelon: Do I look like a fucking fisherman? I sail a ship, not a boat.

  • Kassandra: Malaka... I came to see if you needed help.
  • Gelon: Fuck you, no one asked you to!
  • Kassandra: You know what, fuck you.

Kassandra walked away.

  • Gelon: Ok. Sorry, been a bad day. I finished my business with the Oracle and was meant to meet my ship here. They're nowhere to be fucking found, and I have been here since last night.

Kassandra walked back to Gelon.

  • Kassandra: It was just a question. I'm here to help.
  • Gelon: Oh, it's not your fault. After my business with the Oracle, I came to meet my ship and crew. That was a day ago, and they're nowhere to be found.

  • Kassandra: So, you sought the Oracle's advice?
  • Gelon: Her? Fuck no! I'd rather seek council in the wind from my ass.
  • Kassandra: Then why seek her out?
  • Gelon: We got a deal. Suppose no harm in telling you. She lets me know where the pilgrims are coming from. Then I supply the transport for their journey, and we split the fee.
  • Kassandra: So, you're trying to tell me the Oracle has divine intuition of where the pilgrims will be coming from.
  • Gelon: Fuck no! She asks her "believers" how full their ports are, then she tells me. Simple.
  • Kassandra: You have business here in Phokis?
  • Gelon: I got business everywhere. Right now, it's where my fucking ship.
  • Kassandra: So where's the Shark Tooth?
  • Gelon: I wouldn't fucking be here if I knew, would i?
  • Kassandra: Ok, let me rephrase. Where was the crew meant to be?
  • Gelon: Well, um I sent my girl Gyke off. Pilgrims get stuck in the shallows 'round here, and, er, we sort of help out...
  • Kassandra: Oh. Your girl?
  • Gelon: Yeah, best hand I ever had, and more. Look, find my ship and my Gyke, will you? I'll pay.
  • Kassandra: I'll find out what happened and bring them back.
  • Kassandra: Do you know where they could have gone?
  • Gelon: The southeastern shore is pretty rich pickings. Nice cove there to trap lost, wealthy pilgrims.
  • Kassandra: You're a pirate.
  • Gelon: What if I am? I'm the pirate that's paying you. Anyway, I'm not a pirate all the time. It's more of a hobby.
  • Kassandra: A hobby! You sure the crew didn't mutiny and run off on you?
  • Gelon: Not with my Guke at the helm. Plus they never got the cut from our last trip. They wouldn't leave without getting paid.
  • Kassandra: Describe Gyke.
  • Gelon: She's beautiful, she is. Kisses like summer. From the first time I saw her, I wanted to eat her all up...
  • Kassandra: Not helpful.
  • Gelon: OK, OK. She's a raven haired and has a precious band on her arm that I gave ger. Always wears it.
  • Kassandra: I'll find them and return as soon as I can.

Kassandra travelled to the southeastern shore of the Hill of the Sacred War in Phokis. She found a shipwreck near a military camp.

  • Kassandra: That's the Shark's Tooth, all right. Or what's left of her.

She found a number of sharks and numerous bodies in the water. Kassandra eliminated the sharks and dived underwater. She looted the chests and recovered a bracelet on a piece of arm. Kassandra resurfaced and travelled to the nearby camp. She eliminated the soldiers and reclaimed the valuables.

  • Kassandra: I should tell Gelon about Gyke.

Kassandra returned to Gelon.

  • Kassandra: I found your ship.
  • Gelon: And? Come on now, where are they? Where's my Gyke?
  • Kassandra: I don't really know how to tell you this.
  • Gelon: For fuck's sake, Zeus could have impregnated the whole of Athens in the time it takes you to say anything. Where are they?
  • Kassandra: They're dead, all right? And your ship's gone, too.
  • Gelon: My Gyke...
  • Kassandra: All I found is her armband.

Kassandra handed over the armband to Gelon.

  • Gelon: Gyke. Suppose I'm not much of a captain. Can't be a captain without a ship...

  • Kassandra: I can offer you a place on my crew. I know it's not like having your own ship, but you'll be part of a family.
  • Gelon: Hmm, well I'd rather be at sea than stuck here with these pious idiots. You got yourself a deal... Just till I'm back on my feet.
  • Kassandra: Of course.
  • Gelon: Now where's your boat?
  • Kassandra: Ship. It's called the Adrestia.
  • Gelon: Whatever you say, captain.

  • Kassandra: I'd best be on my way.
  • Gelon: You do that, misthios. You may not be the cause, but nonetheless, you're the bringer of ill fate. If I never see you or that fucking Oracle again, I'll count my blessings.

Outcome

Kassandra helped Gelon to uncover the fate of her ship, crew, and Gyke. She was given the choice whether to recruit Gelon to her ship.
