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

Description

Kassandra helped Charon to deal with an issue of theft near the Styx.

Dialogue

Kassandra travelled to the docks, finding a huge crowd gathering in front of Charon.

  • Kassandra: What now?

Kassandra approached Charon.

  • Kassandra: What's going on here?
  • Charon: A disaster! Can't I just have a normal day of ferrying the dead?
  • Kassandra: Tell me what happened.
  • Charon: All of these souls had their coins stolen. Assistant, you have to find the thief and get coins back so the dead can cross the Styx.
  • Kassandra: Why don't you just let them through?
  • Charon: I know you're new around here, but that's not really how we do things in the underworld. Besides, Hades would burn me one toe at a time if I did.
  • Kassandra: All right, I'll find the coin thief.

Charon nodded and turned to the crowd.

  • Charon: You hear that, everyone? My assistant will find the coin thief!

Kassandra learning what happened

(If players choose "Why would anyone steal coins?")

  • Kassandra: Why would anyone want to rob the dead?
  • Charon: Isn't it obvious? The coins are used to pay me for passage across the Styx into the underworld.

(If players choose "Who do you think did it?")

  • Kassandra: Do you suspect anyone here already?
  • Charon: So many pass through, and honestly... you all look the same to me.
  • Kassandra: Come on. Think.
  • Charon: Well... There was a merchant and a politician who acted strangely. They were the only ones not storming my dock.

(If players choose "Leave - That's all for now.")

  • Kassandra: I'll come back when I have news.
  • Charon: I'd start looking in the Passage of Souls, it's where the first coins went missing. Good luck.
  • Kassandra: With all the thieves in the underworld, I'll need it.

Kassandra travelled to the Passage of Souls. Arriving there, she spoke to a soul.

Kassandra speaking to one of the souls

  • Mortal Man: How am I supposed to find anything in this dirty, horrible wasteland?
  • Kassandra: You must be looking for your stolen coins.
  • Mortal Man: How do you know? Maybe you're the criminal who came to admire their handiwork.
  • Kassandra: I'm looking for the thief too, but I won't help with that attitude.
  • Mortal Man: Fine. I've found nothing here myself, anyway.

(If players choose "When did you last have the coins?")

  • Kassandra: You must remember when you last had your coins.
  • Mortal Man: Course I remember. I was walking through the valley with the rest and struck up conversation with a merchant. So arrogant! Still wearing his jewels and gold. Won't do much for him here. When I reached the docks, they were gone.

(If players choose "Did you see anything suspicious?")

  • Kassandra: Did anything catch your attention?
  • Mortal Man: The merchant I spoke to... Seemed nervous. He asked if we really had to pay the ferryman. Perhaps his coins were already stolen.

(If players choose "Leave - I have enough to go on.")

  • Kassandra: I think I've got what I need.

Kassandra found a bunch of empty coin pouches in the skull of a huge beast.

  • Kassandra: Empty coin pouches. The strings have been cut.

Kassandra approached a dig site.

  • Kassandra: Looks like someone buried something here and then came back for it. Must have been in a hurry.

Kassandra investigated a broken bracelet.

  • Kassandra: A gold bracelet. But it's broken—must've snapped when its owner was digging.

Kassandra spoke to a woman.

Kassandra speaking to another soul

  • Mortal Woman: You don't look like the usual people I see passing through here.
  • Kassandra: I'm not dead, if that's what you mean. I'm searching for something.
  • Mortal Woman: Makes two of us. I'm looking for the coins I lost. They must be around here somewhere.

(If players choose "When did you last have the coins?")

  • Kassandra: Think of when you last had them.
  • Mortal Woman: I remembering wandering with the crowd of other people... We were all moving towards the dock—I don't remember where we came from. But as we reached this place, the crowd halted as a man, a politician I think, got up and addressed us.

(If players choose "Where did you lose your coins?")

  • Kassandra: Where were you when you realized your coins were missing?
  • Mortal Woman: At the dock. I was going to pay for the ferryman when I discovered they were gone.

(If players choose "Did you see anything suspicious?")

  • Kassandra: Did you see anything strange during your travels?
  • Mortal Woman: Only the politician. He was moving away from the docks, while everyone else was moving toward them.

(If players choose "Leave – I have to go.")

  • Kassandra: I have to go.
  • Mortal Woman: Good luck in your search.

Kassandra continued searching the area, finding a dagger near a couple of opened chests.

  • Kassandra: A dagger. Looks expensive. Must've been used to cut the coins out.

Kassandra recovered the dagger and returned to the man she talked to earlier.

  • Mortal Man: Any news of my coins?

(If players choose "Do you recognize this dagger?")

  • Kassandra: I found this dagger. Remind you of anything?
  • Mortal Man: A ha! That's what I felt! It nicked me when they cut the strings of my purse.
  • Kassandra: So did you see who did it?
  • Mortal Man: No, I was too focused on the politician addressing the crowd. Captivating man.

(If players choose "Leave – I have enough to go on.")

  • Kassandra: I think I've got what I need.

Kassandra returned to Charon at the docks, along with two men sitting on the ground.

  • Charon: Finally! I was starting to worry you'd gotten lost.
  • Kassandra: I didn't think your kind were capable of worrying.
  • Charon: There are many things you don't know about us. Like how impatient we are. Have you discovered who stole the coins?

(If players choose "Let's look at the evidence.")

ACOD FoA ToH Death-Light Robbery 05

A worried politician

  • Kassandra: So, the dead were robbed while a politician gave a speech. One witness thought he looked suspicious because he was wandering through the crowd. Away from the docks.

The politician displayed a worried look on his face, which Charon noticed.

  • Charon: Ah yes, even I noticed him.
  • Kassandra: But, a rich merchant was asking about paying the toll. I found a nice dagger that must've cut the coins out. And I found a gold bracelet near the hole that hid the coins.
  • Charon: The plot thickens...

  • Kassandra: It was the merchant. He stole the coins.
  • Charon: A greedy merchant. Typical. Come, let us deal with him and be done with this.

Charon and Kassandra approached the merchant.

  • Charon: So you were the one who took coins from these people.

The merchant stood up.

  • Merchant: This is nonsense. No one should have to pay to enter the underworld.
  • Charon: Spare me your platitudes. You stole because you're greedy.
  • Merchant: These people had nothing in life—they need nothing in death. If I can't live a comfortable life, nobody should.

  • Kassandra: The politician is responsible for taking the coins.
  • Charon: I lost count of how many selfish politicians I've ferried across the Styx long ago. We must deal with this now before more chaos ensues.

Charon and Kassandra approached the politician.

  • Charon: Let's make this quick. I'm told you were the one to steal the coins.
  • Politician: Me? No, I'm innocent.
  • Charon: Of course you are. Problem is, my friend thinks otherwise.
  • Politician: You've got the wrong man. Please!
  • Charon: You know, this is the worst part of my job.

Charon put the man to sleep. The merchant stood up.

  • Merchant: I can't take it anymore. I didn't want any of this. No one should have to pay to enter the underworld.

ACOD FoA ToH Death-Light Robbery 06

The merchant confronted by Hades

The merchant took out a coin pouch and through it into the Styx. Charon walked up to the merchant in anger. Showing a nervous look, the merchant stepped back, only to bounce into Hades who appeared behind.

  • Charon: Hades... So nice to see you. Whatever brings you to my shore?
  • Hades: I could hear this ruckus from the bowels of Tartaros. What is happening here?

The merchant turned around, only to be punched by Kassandra and knocked to the ground.

  • Kassandra: This man stole coins from the dead and then threw them into the river Styx.
  • Hades: Mortals always seem to find new ways to surprise me.
  • Charon: I'm glad you're finding this funny, but these people had coins for fair passageway and now they don't.
  • Hades: If they do not have coins, they cannot cross into my realm. That is the law, Charon.
  • Charon: They were sent here with the coins as law and tradition state. They deserve to be granted passage.
  • Hades: Why don't we let our friend here decide their fate?

  • Kassandra: These people were robbed of their chance for peace. They deserve passage.
  • Charon: Well said, Kassandra. They will be granted passage to the underworld.

Hades pointed to the merchant who recovered.

  • Hades: And what of him?
  • Charon: Feed him to your hounds.
  • Hades: I was hoping you'd say that.
ACOD FoA ToH Death-Light Robbery 09

Hades "punishing" the merchant

An energy began to engulf the merchant. Hades, using telekinesis, pulled the merchant to him and drew him into a portal on the ground. Hades then left the place. Charon turned to Kassandra.

  • Charon: Sometimes we have to make difficult choices. To be able to do so confidently is a rare trait in your kind.
  • Kassandra: I've done it before. I'll have to do it again.
  • Charon: For such a hopeless fleshing, you've come a long way. Now that Hades is gone, there's something you should have.
  • Kassandra: Thank you, Charon.
  • Charon: It's a shame you have to go. You've been a good assistant. I hope you find the answers you seek.

Kassandra received a note from Charon.

  • A Note from Charon:
    I am grateful for your help, but know the trials ahead won't be easy. Things are not always as they seem in the realm of Hades. Sometimes you must fight fire with fire, little fleshling.

Outcome

Kassandra helped Charon to identify the thief who stole the coins of the souls. The culprit was later punished by Hades.

Trivia

  • The name of the memory is a play on the phrase "daylight robbery", meaning a situation in which you have to pay far too much money for something.
  • Regardless of which decision Kassandra chooses, the merchant is the culprit who stole the coins and reveals himself.
