Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-Odyssey

Flowers for the Dead 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 a dying old man who wanted to do one last thing before he departed.

Dialogue

While near the Knossos Palace, Kassandra met an old man who was collecting flowers.

Kassandra approached the old man.

  • Kassandra: What's on your mind, old man?
  • Civilian: I'm dying, misthios. I can feel it in my bones. But first, there's something I need to do. Will you help an old man fulfil his dying wish? I can offer you what drachmae I have left.
  • Kassandra: I won't deny an old man his finish wish. What is it?
  • Civilian: I always promised my wife I'd take her to see the red flowers on the summit of the mountain in Zeus' Playground. It's a beautiful place—great view. But she met the ferryman before me, misthios. I never made good on my promise. It was always one thing or another, you know? Children, war, what have you.

  • Kassandra: It was a tough situation. You did your best.
  • Civilian: You're a kind soul, misthios. But I failed her... I did.

  • Kassandra: So what do you want me to do?
  • Civilian: I need you to pick some of those red flowers for me from the Summit of Mount Ida so I can take them to my wife when I meet Hades. Just a few would do. Bring them back to me here. I'll be waiting, misthios. And—I don't have long.
  • Kassandra: I understand.

Kassandra headed to Mount Ida and reached the summit.

  • Kassandra: This must be the place the old man spoke of.

She found the flower among the bushes.

  • Kassandra: There it is. The flower.

She picked up the flower.

  • Kassandra: The flowers... I should hurry back to the old man near Gortyn.

Kassandra quickly returned to where the old man was at. There, she found a lady near a covered body instead.

  • Kassandra: Hades claims another.
  • Civilian: In all my life, I've never seen him so peaceful. I hope he's found mater. Those flowers... Are they—
  • Kassandra: Yes. He asked me to fetch them.
  • Civilian: You silly old man. Is this why you left Pephka? To fetch mater flowers so far from home? You silly, stubborn, old man...

  • Kassandra: Here.

Kassandra handed over the flower.

  • Civilian: Thank you so much, misthios.
  • Kassandra: He made a promise to his wife. And I made a promise to him.
  • Civilian: I don't have anything to offer you—

  • Civilian: Mater must be so glad you brought her flowers. You never did when she was alive...

Outcome

Kassandra helped the old man to recover the flower his wife wanted, although he never lived long enough to see Kassandra return with it.
