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


Kassandra met a young boy at the Knossos Palace who claimed to have seen a living Minotaur.


Exploring the Knossos Palace, Kassandra came upon a camp someone had put together. Intrigued, she inspected it. As she knelt before the chest in the camp, a voice rang behind her.

  • Ardos: Don't touch that chest! It's mine!

Kassandra stood up and turned to face the boy.

  • Kassandra: I'm no thief, but if I was—
    I'd want something more valuable.
  • Ardos: Take that back.

  • Kassandra: Feeling brave, are you?
  • Ardos: Me? No. Brave people are just looking for trouble.
    But if
    you wanna be brave? Open it.
  • Kassandra: This is junk.
  • Ardos: Maybe to you—
    —but it's all I have.

  • Kassandra: These ruins are an... interesting place to set up camp. What brings you here?

Ardos walked past her, and then sighed.

  • Ardos: A long time ago, below this very spot, my pater—the great adventurer, Nikios—entered the labyrinth to steal the Minotaur's treasure.
    As I waited outside, I heard shouts and roars, then his men came pouring out—
    His men, but not
    pater. I need to save him.

  • Kassandra: Your monster is no match for my or my spear.
  • Ardos: Suuure.
  • Kassandra: If he's real, killing a creature of legend would be worth my time.
  • Ardos: Of course he's real!

  • Kassandra: The Minotaur would be a match for any mortal... but wasn't it slain by Theseus?
  • Ardos: No, misthios. It's very much alive and well.

  • Kassandra: A tragic tale... But last I heard, the Minotaur was living in Pephka. He's quite famous.
  • Ardos: They don't know what they're talking about! The real Minotaur is in Messara!
  • Kassandra: That's what they said in Pephka.
  • Ardos: It's a scam.
    Trust me, I know scams.

  • Kassandra: The Minotaur was just a man in a mask.
    And not much a man at that.

  • Kassandra: I've met the Minotaur... He's not what you think.

  • Ardos: Those idiots in Pephka—they wouldn't know a real Minotaur if it ran them through with its horns!
    It's not like that here,

  • Kassandra: Where is he then? You said the labyrinth was beneath us—
  • Ardos: Yeah! There's a creepy looking trapdoor beneath the temple!
  • Kassandra: Take me there, and I will slay the Minotaur and find your pater's—

Ardos looked at her hopefully. She stammered.

  • Kassandra: ...Find your pater.
  • Ardos: You-you'll do that?

(Accepting the quest segues into Of Minotaurs and Men)


Kassandra set about finding a way inside, by investigating the men who accompanied Ardos' father Nikios inside several years prior.
