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

Description

Distracted on the busy streets of Olympia by a con man, Kassandra was robbed by his partner, a young girl who reminded her of Phoibe. Kassandra needed to find her and get her drachmae back.

Dialogue

On the street between the Temple of Zeus and the Olympic Tree, a fidgety, topless bald man approached Kassandra and talked to her.

  • Street Vendor: Hey you, misthios! Would you like to learn about your future?

  • Kassandra: Thank you. I would like to know what the Fates have planned for me.
  • Street Vendor: You would! Yes, of course you would. Everyone wants their future told by the Great Ouzo!

A girl wearing an orange peplos sneaks behind Kassandra.

  • Kassandra: Well, what is it?
  • Street Vendor: I see great things...
  • Kassandra: Like what?
  • Street Vendor: You know things, and... it's going to be sunny tomorrow.

The girl snatched a pouch of drachmae from Kassandra without her noticing.

  • Street Vendor: Thank you, thank you. Tell your friends.

  • Kassandra: The Oracle at Delphi ruined my life. You think I want to hear your lies, too?

A girl wearing an orange peplos sneaks behind Kassandra.

  • Street Vendor: No worries! How about I clean your sandals?

  • Kassandra: Not today.
  • Street Vendor: Then what about your...
  • Kassandra: I don't need anything. Go!

The girl snatched a pouch of drachmae from Kassandra without her noticing.

  • Street Vendor: Well, no accounting for taste, but suit yourself!

  • Kassandra: My sandals are fine.
  • Street Vendor: Then what about your...
  • Kassandra: I don't need anything. Go!

The girl snatched a pouch of drachmae from Kassandra without her noticing.

  • Street Vendor: Well, no accounting for taste, but suit yourself!

The man walked away.

  • Kassandra: What is it with the Olympics? Everyone's out to make drachmae...

Kassandra notices her pouch is missing then quickly looks behind her and chases after the child.

  • Kassandra: Maláka, my drachmae! Hey, stop, thief!

She stops for a moment after realizing what the child reminds her of.

  • Kassandra: Looks like Phoibe... And as nimble a thief!

Kassandra briefly lost track of the girl.

  • Kassandra: I have to find her.

She managed to track her down among the crowd in front of Leonidaion.

  • Kassandra: Hey, come back here! Thief!

The girl runs away to the south entrance of Olympia nearby. Kassandra whispers to herself.

  • Kassandra: A street thief. Just like Phoibe...

The girl took a left outside the entrance, down towards the back of the stables. Kassandra chased her and discovered a group of children. She approaches the girl who stopped fleeing.

  • Kassandra: You led me on a good chase, but I caught you. Hand it over.

The girl looks frightened.

  • Maia: Hand what over?
  • Kassandra: My drachmae. Give it back.

Maia apprehensively hands the pouch to Kassandra.

  • Maia: Here, please don't hurt me. They made me do it, I didn't want to, honest...

She starts to cry.

  • Kassandra: Hush. I'm not going to hurt you, I promise.
  • Maia: But the Captain will!

(If players choose "Who's the Captain?")

  • Kassandra: Captain?
  • Maia: Yeah, it's him that makes us do this.
  • Kassandra: Us?
  • Maia: The other street kids!

(If players choose "Why's the Captain making you steal?")

  • Kassandra: Why is he making you steal?

The girl suddenly turns gall.

  • Maia: For the drachmae, stupid!

Kassandra replies sharply.

  • Kassandra: You should be more polite to adults.

Maia puts her arms on her hips.

  • Maia: Why? What've adults done for me?
  • Kassandra: Fair enough.

(If players choose "I'll find the Captain.")

  • Kassandra: Sounds like this Captain needs a good talking to.
  • Maia: Don't talk, just hit. He even stole my mater's necklace from me... Says I'll get it back if I steal for him.

She dolefully continues.

  • Maia: It's all that I had left of her...

  • Kassandra: I'll help you get your necklace.
  • Maia: Why would you care?
  • Kassandra: You remind me of someone... Someone very special.

  • Kassandra: You can't rely on me or others for help. You need to learn to solve your own problems.
  • Maia: Thanks for nothing, maláka!

Kassandra returns.

  • Maia: What do you want?
  • Kassandra: What did you need me to do?
  • Maia: Get my necklace and save my friends from the Captain... But you'll probably just disappoint me again.

(If the players return to Maia without getting the necklace.)

  • Maia: Did you get my necklace from the Captain? Where are my friends? Did you help them? Was there a fight? Why are you standing there? Did you do anything?

Kassandra departs from the stable and rides to Endymion Camp at Psophis Foothills. She arrives at the camp and sneaks her way in. She found three cages each with children in it.

  • Kassandra: Keeping children in cages? Whoever did this will pay.

She overhears the captain and a bald man talking to each other.

  • Athenian Heavy Soldier: Why do I feed those little shits? Let 'em steal their own food.

Kassandra recognizes the other man as the one who distracted her.

  • Kassandra: There's that maláka I saw in the market. He must be in on this scheme.
  • Street Vendor: Well, Captain, if you don't feed them, they'll be too weak to run away with the loot. If they get caught, you'll have to train new ones.
  • Athenian Heavy Soldier: You want me to give them your food? Maybe I should beat you more, set an example for the brats.
  • Street Vendor: Please, no. I was just trying to help. It's in your interest to keep them healthy and...
  • Athenian Heavy Soldier: I don't need street scum like you telling me what's in my interest.
  • Athenian Heavy Soldier: You think this is a game? You're supposed to bring me drachmae, not excuses!

(If the captain was alerted by the players' presence.)

The bald man crouched in fear.

  • Athenian Heavy Soldier: You! Get the fuck out of my camp before I beat you like the dog that you are.

Kassandra manages to kill the captain then takes the necklace from his corpse.

  • Kassandra: This must be Maia's necklace... Maláka kept it on him.

She frees the children and approached the other man.

  • Street Vendor: Please, I only wanted to help the children. Spare me, and I'll do better. I'll look after them all.

(Players decide whether to execute him or not.)

  • Kassandra: I should return to Maia.

Kassandra returns to Maia.

  • Kassandra: I got something for you.

The girl turns overjoyed.

  • Maia: Thank you, thank you, thank you!
  • Maia: What happened to Alopex?

Kassandra kneels down on one knee.

  • Maia: You know, the guy who distracted you while I nabbed your purse!

(If players killed him.)

  • Kassandra: I had to kill him. He was a partner in this. He could have enslaved you all again.

Maia turns crestfallen.

  • Maia: Oh...
  • Kassandra: I have [to] move on now, but I'm glad I could help.
  • Maia: What? I...

Kassandra stands up.

  • Kassandra: It's all right. You don't have to thank me. Take care, Maia.

(If players left him.)

  • Kassandra: I spared him. He's promised to help you and the others.
  • Maia: Good, I always liked him. He used to share his food with us and stand up for us when the Athenian got mad!

Kassandra stands up.

  • Kassandra: You'll do fine. Take care.

Regardless, Maia will be grateful for her.

  • Maia: Thanks for saving us from the Athenian. Now we get to keep everything we steal!

Outcome

Kassandra retrieved her money, as well as the necklace of Maia's mother, freeing the girl and her friends from the clutches of the Captain.
