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

Description

Kassandra was captured by the Cult of Kosmos after her confrontation with Deimos at the Battle of Pylos.

Dialogue

After the Battle of Pylos, Kassandra was captured and woke up in a prison cell in Athens. She sat up and saw Deimos watching her beyond the bars.

  • Deimos: I don't know what you were thinking back there.

She approached him.

  • Kassandra: What, trying to save you?
  • Deimos: That's not what that was. I told you to stay out of my way—yet here you are.
  • Kassandra: So, what? I'm a prisoner until I'm killed?
  • Deimos: That's the plan. Or I could come in there and end you anytime I please.
    But before that. Tell me what you know.
  • Kassandra: I thought your Cultists told you everything. Sounds like you're on their side, but they're not on yours.
  • Deimos: You think I'm just a puppet? Then prove it to me. Tell me why I'm on the wrong side. Convince me—I dare you.
  • Kassandra: What do you want to know?
  • Deimos: Everything you claim to be true. But after this, I kill you. Why was I abandoned that night on the mountain?

  • Kassandra: It was the Pythia's prophecy. The Spartan ephors said there was no other choice.
  • Deimos: A prophecy?
  • Kassandra: You and I both know who feeds the Pythia her words.
  • Deimos: ...I do. A baby with a fate so terrible it was thrown off a cliff. What kind of prophecy would lead to that?

  • Kassandra: The Pythia said you were going to bring Sparta to greatness... or to its downfall. Waiting for the outcome was too big a risk.
  • Deimos: A risk.
  • Kassandra: I heard you're unpredictable.
  • Deimos: I call it being decisive. You weren't decisive that night. You—"my family"—let me go.
  • Kassandra: "Let you go"? You have no idea what happened on that mountain.
  • Deimos: Then tell me.

  • Kassandra: No one told you that I tried to save you? I ran to catch you. I killed an elder. That ended my life, too.
  • Deimos: Always trying to play the "hero". It wasn't enough then, and it wasn't enough now.
  • Kassandra: I did everything I could. And I'm doing the same today.
  • Deimos: It's too late. There's nothing you could say to make me feel like family.

  • Kassandra: Listen. After you and the elder fell, they threw me off Mount Taygetos, too. Pater... let me go. It was his "duty."
  • Deimos: You were abandoned, too.
  • Kassandra: Yes.
  • Deimos: But we both survived. Against their wishes.
  • Kassandra: We did. We're alive.
  • Deimos: Maybe it serves them right.

  • Kassandra: They've kept secrets from both of us.
  • Deimos: Right. Though you claim to know much more than me.
  • Kassandra: It's Nikolaos. He isn't our real father. It was another man—a man like us.
  • Deimos: How many more secrets am I supposed to take? When will I get the truth?
  • Kassandra: Gods are cruel.

  • Kassandra: If the Cult had their way, they'd be using both of us.
  • Deimos: Is that so?
  • Kassandra: They probably won't even kill me. They'll just enslave me like they did you.
  • Deimos: No, they will kill you. Use me? They need me.
  • Kassandra: They know their strength is in numbers. If I bowed to them like you, they'd have the Greek world at their feet.
  • Deimos: I don't bow to them. They bow to me!

  • Kassandra: Mater went after you.
  • Deimos: What do you mean, "after me?"
  • Kassandra: She went down the mountain to find you. She had to find you.
  • Deimos: And what did she find there?

  • Kassandra: She brought you to a priest to be healed, but he told her you died.
  • Deimos: I wasn't her only child. Not everything was lost.
  • Kassandra: No, all was lost. Everything we ever knew.
  • Deimos: What do you know? You know nothing of what I've had to do.

  • Kassandra: Listen. After you and the elder fell, they threw me off Mount Taygetos, too. Pater... let me go. It was his "duty."
  • Deimos: You were abandoned, too.
  • Kassandra: Yes.
  • Deimos: But we both survived. Against their wishes.
  • Kassandra: We did. We're alive.
  • Deimos: Maybe it serves them right.

  • Kassandra: They've kept secrets from both of us.
  • Deimos: Right. Though you claim to know much more than me.

  • Kassandra: Gods are cruel.

  • Deimos: Is that so?
  • Kassandra: They probably won't even kill me. They'll just enslave me like they did you.
  • Deimos: No, they will kill you. Use me? They need me.
  • Kassandra: They know their strength is in numbers. If I bowed to them like you, they'd have the Greek world at their feet.
  • Deimos: I don't bow to them. They bow to me!

  • Kassandra: She found the truth. The Cult wanted you so badly they'd do anything to have you.
  • Deimos: As if that's a bad thing.
  • Kassandra: They've warped your mind.
  • Deimos: You said it yourself. They wanted me badly. Why do you think that is?

  • Kassandra: They want control. Over everything. The people. Athens... they won't stop.
  • Deimos: No, they won't stop. I won't let them.
    And they won't control me. I'm winning this war for them.
  • Kassandra: At what cost?
  • Deimos: Whatever it takes.

  • Kassandra: They want our family gone—all of us. Not one of us left.
  • Deimos: Then explain why I'm still here.
  • Kassandra: They got to you young. They built you to their benefit.
  • Deimos: And they built a machine.
  • Kassandra: They don't care what happens to us.

  • Kassandra: Wake up, Alexios! The moment you fall, they'll find someone else. Someone more controllable. Why do you think they want me, too?
  • Deimos: You think they want you? If the Cult wanted you, they would have saved you. If Myrrine wanted you, she'd be here. Accept it. No one wants you.
  • Kassandra: One day, you'll realize their future doesn't include people like us.
  • Deimos: Then I wasn't meant to belong anywhere.

  • Kassandra: After that, we weren't Spartan anymore. We were banished by the ephors and targeted by the Cult. And they got one of us.
  • Deimos: If they have me, they don't need the rest of you.

  • Kassandra: They want control. Over everything. The people. Athens... they won't stop.
  • Deimos: No, they won't stop. I won't let them.
  • Deimos: And they won't control me. I'm winning this war for them.
  • Kassandra: At what cost?
  • Deimos: Whatever it takes.

  • Kassandra: They want our family gone—all of us. Not one of us left.

  • Kassandra: One day, you'll realize their future doesn't include people like us.
  • Deimos: Then I wasn't meant to belong anywhere.

  • Kassandra: Pater made the final decision. He was bound to Sparta.
  • Deimos: Dutiful as ever.
  • Kassandra: And he chose that over his family. He was wrong.
  • Deimos: Of course he was wrong. A father? It's laughable.
  • Kassandra: If he hadn't, we would've all been disgraced.
  • Deimos: And that's worse than where we found ourselves? Pathetic. A 'family'. Am I supposed to sympathize with you?

  • Kassandra: Listen. After you and the elder fell, they threw me off Mount Taygetos, too. Pater... let me go. It was his "duty."
  • Deimos: You were abandoned, too.
  • Kassandra: Yes.

  • Deimos: I don't bow to them. They bow to me!

  • Kassandra: The Cult took you for themselves to mold you into something they could use.
  • Deimos:: I made myself.
  • Kassandra: Into what? This is what you wanted to be?
  • Deimos: I am a god. The Cult worships me.

  • Kassandra: They want control. Over everything. The people. Athens... they won't stop.
  • Deimos: No, they won't stop. I won't let them.
  • Deimos: And they won't control me. I'm winning this war for them.

  • Deimos: Then I wasn't meant to belong anywhere.

  • Kassandra: The Pythia said you wouldn't survive. You wouldn't be a good Spartan.
  • Deimos: Is that what she said?
  • Kassandra: She wasn't wrong. There's not an honorable bone in your body.
  • Deimos: Maláka! And your bones are made of gold? They threw off the wrong child—I'm glad to be nothing like you.

  • Kassandra: Listen. After you and the elder fell, they threw me off Mount Taygetos, too. Pater... let me go. It was his "duty."
  • Deimos: You were abandoned, too.
  • Kassandra: Yes.

  • Deimos: I don't bow to them. They bow to me!

  • Kassandra: "Abandon you?" Is that what you call it?
  • Deimos: There's no other name for what you did to me. I was left to die.
  • Kassandra: We tried to save you.
  • Deimos: They decreed my fate, and you accepted it.

  • Kassandra: No one told you that I tried to save you? I ran to catch you. I killed an elder. That ended my life, too.

  • Deimos: How many more secrets am I supposed to take? When will I get the truth?
  • Kassandra: Gods are cruel.

  • Kassandra: If the Cult had their way, they'd be using both of us.
  • Deimos: Is that so?
  • Kassandra: They probably won't even kill me. They'll just enslave me like they did you.
  • Deimos: No, they will kill you. Use me? They need me.
  • Kassandra: They know their strength is in numbers. If I bowed to them like you, they'd have the Greek world at their feet.
  • Deimos: I don't bow to them. They bow to me!

  • Kassandra: The Cult took you for themselves to mold you into something they could use.
  • Deimos:: I made myself.
  • Kassandra: Into what? This is what you wanted to be?
  • Deimos: I am a god. The Cult worships me.

  • Kassandra: They want control. Over everything. The people. Athens... they won't stop.
  • Deimos: No, they won't stop. I won't let them.
  • Deimos: And they won't control me. I'm winning this war for them.
  • Kassandra: At what cost?
  • Deimos: Whatever it takes.

  • Kassandra: They want our family gone—all of us. Not one of us left.
  • Deimos: Then explain why I'm still here.
  • Kassandra: They got to you young. They built you to their benefit.
  • Deimos: And they built a machine.
  • Kassandra: They don't care what happens to us.

  • Kassandra: Wake up, Alexios! The moment you fall, they'll find someone else. Someone more controllable. Why do you think they want me, too?
  • Deimos: You think they want you? If the Cult wanted you, they would have saved you. If Myrrine wanted you, she'd be here. Accept it. No one wants you.
  • Kassandra: One day, you'll realize their future doesn't include people like us.
  • Deimos: Then I wasn't meant to belong anywhere.

  • Kassandra: The Pythia said you wouldn't survive. You wouldn't be a good Spartan.
  • Deimos: Is that what she said?
  • Kassandra: She wasn't wrong. There's not an honorable bone in your body.
  • Deimos: Maláka! And your bones are made of gold? They threw off the wrong child—I'm glad to be nothing like you.

  • Kassandra: Listen. After you and the elder fell, they threw me off Mount Taygetos, too. Pater... let me go. It was his "duty."
  • Deimos: You were abandoned, too.
  • Kassandra: Yes.
  • Deimos: But we both survived. Against their wishes.
  • Kassandra: We did. We're alive.
  • Deimos: Maybe it serves them right.

  • Kassandra: They've kept secrets from both of us.
  • Deimos: Right. Though you claim to know much more than me.
  • Kassandra: It's Nikolaos. He isn't our real father. It was another man—a man like us.
  • Deimos: How many more secrets am I supposed to take? When will I get the truth?
  • Kassandra: Gods are cruel.

  • Kassandra: If the Cult had their way, they'd be using both of us.
  • Deimos: Is that so?
  • Kassandra: They probably won't even kill me. They'll just enslave me like they did you.
  • Deimos: No, they will kill you. Use me? They need me.
  • Kassandra: They know their strength is in numbers. If I bowed to them like you, they'd have the Greek world at their feet.
  • Deimos: I don't bow to them. They bow to me!

  • Kassandra: You're being used. You wouldn't be here with me if you thought they were telling you the whole truth.
  • Deimos: Here's the truth. If all they wanted was a soldier, there are thousands. They want me, and only me.

  • Kassandra: They want control. Over everything. The people. Athens... they won't stop.
  • Deimos: No, they won't stop. I won't let them.
  • Deimos: And they won't control me. I'm winning this war for them.
  • Kassandra: At what cost?
  • Deimos: Whatever it takes.

  • Kassandra: They want our family gone—all of us. Not one of us left.

  • Kassandra: One day, you'll realize their future doesn't include people like us.
  • Deimos: Then I wasn't meant to belong anywhere.

  • Kassandra: They know the power of Athens. Look around you—they were scared.
  • Deimos: Athens is crumbling. Kleon has the power now.
  • Kassandra: Until they kill every enemy—until they kill me—they don't have Athens.
  • Deimos: But they will claim it.

  • Kassandra: They want control. Over everything. The people. Athens... they won't stop.
  • Deimos: No, they won't stop. I won't let them.
  • Deimos: And they won't control me. I'm winning this war for them.
  • Kassandra: At what cost?
  • Deimos: Whatever it takes.

  • Kassandra: They want our family gone—all of us. Not one of us left.

  • Deimos: Then I wasn't meant to belong anywhere.

Their conversation was cut short by the arrival of Kleon. Deimos turned away from him.

  • Kleon: Deimos. We've been searching for you. And you're here. In the gutter. I heard shouting.
  • Deimos: It's nothing.
  • Kleon: Leave. Now. This was not your action to take, boy.

(Depending on the choices made in the earlier dialogue, Deimos will either listen to Kleon or defy him.)

  • Deimos: Do whatever you want with her.
  • Kleon: I intend to. Now go.

Deimos left the prison without another word.

  • Deimos: I am not your puppet!

Deimos shoved his finger in Kleon's face and menacingly inched him back towards the wall.

  • Deimos: And you are not my master.

Kleon was surprised at Deimos' behavior, but put up his arms and apologized anyway.

  • Kleon: Of course, champion. An indiscretion I won't repeat.

Deimos hissed at Kleon as he left the prison.

Regardless, Kleon approached Kassandra to patronize her predicament as Deimos walked away.

  • Kleon: Keep in mind you put yourself in the cell.
  • Kassandra: I don't recall doing that.
  • Kleon: You have to understand—this is all for Athens, Kassandra. Perikles would've impoverished the entire city. The people were living in squalor!
  • Kassandra: So you had him murdered.
  • Kleon: You can't find the perfect yolk without breaking some of the quail's eggs. he wasn't right for us.

  • Kassandra: Killing your adversaries proves what kind of leader you are.
  • Kleon: Oh, I'm just getting started. If only you'd be around to watch.

  • Kassandra: Then you'll do things differently than Perikles.
  • Kleon: Friends flank my every side. The people trust in me. They know my every decree and law will be to their benefit. And they will delight in what I have planned.

  • Kassandra: Come into the cell. You're here to kill me, aren't you? Let's see what happens.

Kleon signaled for the guards to come to him.

  • Kleon: Fortunately for me, there are other fires I need to extinguish. I've heard word of revolt.
  • Kassandra: Already? That was fast.
  • Kleon: I have a plan—they can't revolt if they're dead.

The guards entered the cell and surrounded Kassandra.

  • Kassandra: I don't know how you can take on a band of rebels if you refuse to fight this one.
  • Kleon: The act itself is out of my hands—the vote has been cast! What did I tell you? The people have given me their blessing. I use their power.
  • Kassandra: That's not democracy.

(Choice all the way back in Welcome to Athens)

  • Kleon: The people have chosen their destiny, Kassandra—they've chosen me.

(Other choice)

  • Kleon: I thought politics was a game to you, remember? It is. And I play to win.
  • Kassandra: Fuck you, Kleon.

Kleon laughed.

  • Kleon: I'm not alone in this! The people of Athens have spoken without me lifting a finger. That is how you treat rebellion.
  • Kassandra: They don't know what they're agreeing to.

(If Kleon's quests were completed)

  • Kleon: You helped me in Athens—even willingly. If only you were more like your brother now.
  • Kassandra: A pity.
  • Kleon: The Cult wins, Kassandra. Now, I have to see about the boat heading to Mytilene. Its people are in for a rude awakening.

Kleon left, whistling for the guards to kill Kassandra. However, Kassandra bested them. She had time to take in a deep breath, doubled over from the exertion of the bout, before she heard a scream, and prepared for a fight anew.

Instead of soldiers, Barnabas and Sokrates charged into the cell, wielding a shovel and a cultivator, respectively.

  • Barnabas: By the power of the gods—halt!

They noticed the guards were already defeated and dropped the tools.

  • Barnabas: ...Aw.

Kassandra smiled at their bold entrance.

  • Kassandra: Good timing.
  • Sokrates: Interesting. Death may be the greatest of human blessings, after all.

The three of them took a moment to collect themselves.

  • Kassandra: At least you tried.
  • Barnabas: Surely it's the thought that counts! Thank the gods you're alive, Kassandra.
  • Sokrates: If those guards aren't the last, I say we need to leave, and do so quickly.
  • Kassandra: Wait—we need to talk about Kleon.
  • Barnabas: Sokrates is onto that maláka. We know what he's doing.
  • Sokrates: Be brief! Her equipment, Barnabas.

Barnabas handed over Kassandra's equipment, allowing her to change. They left the cell.

  • Sokrates: Come, Barnabas! Kassandra, meet us at Perikles' Residence. There, we'll discuss all we know.

Barnabas and Sokrates left the prison, with Kassandra re-equipped and once again able to fend for herself without issue.

Outcome

Though captured by the Cult of Kosmos and imprisoned, Kassandra managed to escape with the help of Barnabas and Sokrates after talking with Deimos, and learning of Kleon being a member of the Cult.

Trivia

  • The choices made in this dialogues plays an important role and will affect the outcome in the memories Where It All Began and Dinner in Sparta.
  • Kleon is automatically unveiled as the Sage of the Delian League branch of the Cult of Kosmos at the conclusion of this quest. Any outstanding Cultist clues from the other members of the branch can still be read in his submenu by saving and reloading the game upon collecting them. However, their "(?)" statements are no longer readable ("The Sage is a demagogue," "The Sage is involved in Athenian politics," etc.) due to Kleon being unveiled.
