An argument between a captain and his crew drew Kassandra's attention at Lestris.
- Soldier: Every time, Gotarzes!
- Gotarzes: Now, I know the situation doesn't look good...
- Thug: Doesn't look good! We're fucking marooned!
- Gotarzes: You can't blame me for the rocks.
- Thug: You're the captain. We fucking blame you for crashing!
Kassandra approached the pirates.
- Thug: It was simple. An unarmed merchant ship! You gave that to Poseidon, and then ran us onto the rocks.
- Gotarzes: We aren't far from Keos. Someone'll find us.
- Thug: I hope the sharks find you first.
- Kassandra: Stop!
- Thug: Keep the fuck out of this. the captain's gonna get what's comin' to him!
(If players choose "What's going on?")
- Kassandra: What has this man done?
- Thug: What hasn't he done?
- Kassandra: Did he offend you—poor, delicate pirates?
- Thug: Should never have agreed to work with this malákas. We finally get a job from Xenia, and he sails us into the fucking ground.
(If players choose "Why are you here?")
- Kassandra: How did you end up on this island?
- Gotarzes: I can explain. I am the captain...
- Thug: Oh, we've heard enough from you, captain.
- Kassandra: I'll hear it from the captain himself.
- Gotarzes: As I was saying... We got into a great sea battle—which we won, thanks to me—and the victory was so sweet! I didn't notice how close to the rocks we were. A minor accident. Now, if you could just get us back to Keos?
(If players choose "This man's your captain.")
- Kassandra: This man is your captain.
- Thug: You can only be captain if you got a ship, and he ain't got one no more.
- Gotarzes: I can make it worth your while if you get me back to Keos.
- Thug: Stand aside.
- Kassandra: Get out of my way. I'm taking Captain Gotarzes back to Keos.
- Thug: You'll be sorry you stuck your nose in where it don't belong. He's fucked us over too many times. No, the Captain won't leave here alive.
- Kassandra: Get behind me and stay close.
The mutineers attacked both of them.
- Gotarzes: By the gods, help me!
- Kassandra: It's your crew. Answer to them.
- Gotarzes: Please no, you must protect me!
- Thug: Make your peace with Poseidon, Captain.
The mutineers attacked Gotarzes.
- Gotarzes: By the gods, help me!
(Gotarzes lived and the mutineers lay dead. She spoke to him.)
- Gotarzes: Some fight, eh? Thank you, stranger. Now if you can just get me to Keos, there's a reward in it for you.
- Kassandra: There better be. You've seen what happens to people I disagree with.
Let's get to my ship and get you home, then.
Before they could do anything to Gotarzes, Kassandra ambushed the mutineers, killing them all. She spoke to Gotarzes.
- Gotarzes: Thank you. Knowingly or not, you've just saved my life.
- Kassandra: And was it worth saving?
- Gotarzes: Get me back to Keos, and I'll pay you handsomely.
- Kassandra: We'd better get you to my ship then.
Gotarzes was given passage aboard the Adrestia.
- Gotarzes: Ah! What a relief it will be to go back to Keos. Sure, Xenia will be angry that I don't have the miltos... But I can deal with that.
- Kassandra: Why's the miltos so important?
- Gotarzes: What kind of pirate are you? It's nearly as valuable as gold!
(If the Adrestia encounters and is engaged by a pirate ship.)
- Barnabas: We've got company. Friend of yours?
- Kassandra: You go to one symposium, and everyone wants to know you!
- Gotarzes: I should never have gone back out to sea.
The ship eventually docked in Koressia's harbor once more. Xenia was relieved to see Gotarzes.
- Xenia: Gotarzes!
- Kassandra: That's... not what I expected.
- Xenia: Gotarzes! I thought I'd lost you this time. Where's your ship?
- Kassandra: He sailed too close to the shore. The ship got caught on the rocks.
- Gotarzes: We were in the middle of a raging battle!
What happened to the crew?
- Kassandra: Family is family. No reward necessary.
- Xenia: No. I am in your debt.
- Xenia: Your armor Gotarzes. Give it to her.
- Gotarzes: But this was father's. It's mine by birthright.
- Xenia: Now.
- Kassandra: His armor—
- Xenia: Belongs to someone worthy of it.
Gotarzes was rescued from his self-marooning and returned to Xenia.
- If the player refuses to help Gotarzes, he may still survive the fight for the continuation of the quest. However, if he dies, the mission will instantly fail.
- The drachmae reward for the quest is the same, regardless of the player's final choice. The Captain's Chest chest piece, however, is Epic-grade when refusing a reward and Rare-grade when accepting one. The Epic-grade version appears to increase health in addition to both pieces' increasing of warrior damage and total armor.
