―Lagos[src]

Lagos the Archon (died c. 428 BCE) was a Greek politician during the 5th century BCE and a member of the Peloponnesian League branch of the Cult of Kosmos active in Arkadia during the Peloponnesian War.

Biography

An Arcadian farm owner, Lagos rose to become the leader of the region during the 5th century BCE, his wife Philonoe and his son Niloxenos beside him while he kept the 'breadbasket of Peloponnese' full.[1]

Friendship with Brasidas

When the soldiers serving under the Spartan general Brasidas were starving, Lagos managed to get supplies to them. Whether their friendship began before or after this incident is unknown, but this deed made enough of an impression on Brasidas that he reminisced about it years later during the Peloponnesian War.[2] The two kept in contact throughout the years and grew close, with Brasidas even referring to Lagos as a "dear friend." In turn, Lagos mentioned how Kassandra's words reminded him of Brasidas when he was her age.[3]

Due to this friendship and Lagos' aid, Brasidas wanted to free Lagos from the Cult of Kosmos' grasp when he came to Arkadia with Myrrine and her daughter, the misthios Kassandra in around 428 BCE.[1]

Cult of Kosmos

Due to his influential position, Lagos was approached by the Cult of Kosmos sometime before the Peloponnesian War. He first considered them merely as 'business partners',[4] but eventually they showed their true colors. The Sage of the Peloponnesian League branch of the Cult, Pausanias, targeted Lagos' family, and threatened them with torture and death unless Lagos' did as he was told.[5] As a reminder of this, and proof of where Lagos' loyalties should lay, Pausanias gave him his ring.[3]

When the Cult met for the first time after quite a while at the Sanctuary of Kosmos beneath the Sanctuary of Delphi in Phokis around 431 BCE, Lagos was there as well as Pausanias. The Spartan king used the opportunity to remind Lagos of his duty to him, and Kassandra overheard them, though at the time she didn't know who they were.[5]

The Peloponnesian War

Following the meeting the Cultists returned to their posts. Pausanias had Lagos' family placed under guard, and then taken to their hideout within the Golden Fields of Arkadia.[4] A servant who was with them was later separated and brought to the Scorched Tree in the area.[2]

After rumors spread of the 'Eagle-Bearer' hunting the Cultists, Lagos locked himself within Fort Samikon, after being pressured by the Cult to place a bounty on both Kassandra as well as her mother Myrrine.[1] Despite the bounty hunters chasing her, Kassandra was able to track Lagos to the Fort, infiltrate it and face him.[3]

Personality

"I want what's best for Arkadia."
―Lagos[src]
Lagos was considered benevolent pacifist for whom placing bounties and using threats was out of character.[1] His family was everything to him, and by threatening their welfare Lagos could be forced to do anything.[5]

He also had dignity, facing death "as Spartans do."[3]

Trivia

  • Lagos is a name derived from the Greek word λαγῶς (lagos) meaning 'hare', and colloquially 'coward'.
  • In-game if Kassandra killed the Monger in the Sacred Cave as Brasidas requested, Lagos offers up decisive evidence on the Peloponnesian League's Sage and leaves the Cult. However, if she killed the Monger at the theater, Lagos won't believe Kassandra and will fight her to the death instead. An alternate clue to the Sage's identity is a letter sent to Stentor, Nikolaos' adopted son.
    • In the novel Lagos is killed by Myrrine and is the 36th of the 42 Cultists to die.
  • If Lagos is approached before the quest Gluten Free is done, he can be found wandering around Fort Samikon. After said quest is done, he will be locked behind a door, and cannot be approached without triggering the cutscene.
