Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-Odyssey

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


The Olympic Games always drew a crowd. And crowds drew conmen. Kassandra found this out for herself in 428 BCE.


On the street between the Temple of Zeus and the Olympic Tree, a fidgety, topless bald man approached Kassandra and addressed 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 snuck 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 snuck 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...
ACOD Gutter Runner - Kassandra spotting the child thief

Kassandra spotting the thief running away

Kassandra noticed her pouch was missing then quickly looked behind her and chased after the child.

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

She stopped for a moment after realizing the child seemed familiar.

  • 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 the Leonidaion.

  • Kassandra: Hey, come back here! Thief!

The girl ran away to the south entrance of Olympia nearby. Kassandra whispered 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 approached the girl, who'd stopped.

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

Maia caught by Kassandra

The girl looked frightened.

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

Maia gingerly handed the pouch to Kassandra.

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

She started 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?
  • Maia: For the drachmae, stupid!

Kassandra replied sharply.

  • Kassandra: You should be more polite to adults.

Maia put her hands 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. 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 returned.

  • 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 left the girl and rode to Endymion Camp in Psophis Foothills. She infiltrated the camp and found three cages holding children.

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

She overheard the captain and a man talking to each other.

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

Kassandra recognized 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 killed the captain and took the necklace of Maia's mother from his corpse.

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

She freed 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 returned to Maia.

  • Kassandra: I got something for you.

The girl was overjoyed.

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

Kassandra knelt down in front of her.

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

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

Maia was crestfallen.

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

Kassandra stood up.

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

  • 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 stood up.

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

Regardless, Maia was grateful.

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


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


If players retrieve the necklace before starting this quest, they skip the dialogue with the soldiers and tell Maia Alopex is spared.
