While in Chalkis, Kassandra came across a man speaking to another, requesting to gain access to a warehouse.
- Civilian: The warehouse is off limits.
- Agapios: But I need those records!
- Civilian: And I need three fewer daughters, but we don't often get what we want, old friend.
Kassandra approached them.
- Kassandra: What's going on?
- Agapios: I'm here to check the warehouse's taxation records, but I'm being refused entry.
- Civilian: This matter is out of my hands.
- Agapios: Fine, the wheels of Euboea will be greased once more. How much will it cost to get me the records?
- Civilian: That's not going to work this time, Agapios. The guards are under strict orders not to let anyone in or out of the warehouse. It's an order they will enforce, my friend. Take my advice. Stay away from that warehouse.
The man left.
- Kassandra: It's lucky your "friend" warned you.
- Agapios: Ha. He's just as corrupt as the rest of Euboea. I fear there's nobody honest left.
- Kassandra: Not all mercenaries are cutthroats. I can be trusted.
- Agapios: That remains to be seen.
- Kassandra: I'll get the records for you.
- Agapios: Perhaps there is someone left in Euboea who can be trusted.
Kassandra left the docks, only to change her mind and return later.
- Agapios: You've returned! I can't find the identity of the person leading the Dagger without those records. Please, you must help me find them!
(If "Where can I find the records?" is chosen.)
- Kassandra: Where can I find the records you're looking for?
- Agapios: I'll need a lot of evidence to find the person behind The Dagger—one set of records won't be enough. They'll be scattered around the warehouse... And be sure to check the guard captain—anything important, he'll have on him.
(If "Who is the leader of The Dagger?" is chosen.)
- Kassandra: What can you tell me about the man behind The Dagger?
- Agapios: Other than he may not be a man? Only his reputation is known—cruel, driven by greed... A living noose around the neck of Euboea. If we can't find out who he is and stop him, our fate is that of Eretria's: total ruin.
(If "Why are they called The Dagger??" is chosen)
- Kassandra: The Dagger—dramatic name. Any particular reason?
- Agapios: They stab at Euboea without honor—from the shadows, unseen, bleeding our nation of its lifeblood. A dramatic name, perhaps—but apt.
(Leave – "I have enough information.")
- Kassandra: I'll find the records. The guards won't stand a chance.
- Agapios: They don't deserve a chance. For Euboea to survive, corruption and those who spread it must be crushed. I'll wait for you here.
Before leaving, Kassandra spoke to Agapios once more.
- Agapios: You're back—but where are the records? Without them, I'll never uncover the leader of The Dagger!
Kassandra left. Surveying Chalkis with the help of Ikaros, she found a guarded quarter of the city.
- Kassandra: The warehouse grounds.
Ikaros continued surveying and identified the warehouse.
- Kassandra: The warehouse.
Circling some more, Ikaros spotted the docks.
- Kassandra: The warehouse dock.
Kassandra infiltrated the warehouse grounds.
- Kassandra: Now to find those records.
On a table near the docks, she found a tax record.
- Kassandra: Records of the trades Euboea's made in the last 6 months. Maybe the identity of The Dagger's leader is in here?
Kassandra left the docks and headed inside the warehouse, where she recovered a ship manifest on a shelf.
- Kassandra: Maybe this will help Agapios identify The Dagger's leader.
Kassandra sneaked up on the guard captain, killing him. On his body, she recovered a customer record.
- Kassandra: Records of ship names—what docked where and when. This might help Agapios.
Having found what she needed, Kassandra departed the warehouse and returned to Agapios near the market.
- Kassandra: I've found the records, Agapios.
- Agapios: My master will be pleased.
- Kassandra: You're a slave?!
- Agapios: Do I not look as you expect? Yes, misthios, I am a slave—but I am not without dignity. The local magistrate is my master, and I'm his most trusted servant.
- Kassandra: I would rather die than be a slave.
- Agapios: Not all have the luxury of choice, friend.
Kassandra pondered on Agapios' words.
- Agapios: If uncovering the identity of The Dagger's leader and finally stopping them sounds like something you'd be interested in, meet me and my master in the Slave Market.
- Kassandra: I'll think about it.
Kassandra helped Agapios to recover documents from the guarded warehouse which could help me to identify the identity of The Dagger's leader.
- Kassandra seemingly identifies the warehouse twice, even though the second subject recognized is actually the warehouse captain.
- The title of the memory is a reference to a famous quote by Benjamin Franklin in a letter to French physicist Jean-Baptiste Le Roy, that "[N]othing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes."
