No Good Deed was a virtual representation of one of Kassandra's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5.

Dialogue

After the symposium took an unexpected turn, Kassandra returned to Hekate seeking answers.

Description

Kassandra reached Hekate's hovel at the Sunken Temple of Pheraia. Hekate was not there, but she found Persephone sitting in Hekate's throne.

  • Kassandra: No sign of Hekate. But what's Persephone doing here?

Kassandra approached her.

  • Kassandra: Persephone. I was looking for Hekate.
  • Persephone: I can't imagine what you'd need her for, but... never mind. Do you know what the hardest part is about my life here?
  • Kassandra: I don't.
  • Persephone: It's not knowing who to trust. Hekate has been my dearest friend ever since my mother, Demeter, sent her to me. But after that nonsense with Lethe's water, I've been keeping a closer eye on her. Hekate always tells me where she's going, but not this time. My spies tell me she's about to resurface for a secret meeting at Iphigenia's Compound.
  • Kassandra: Sounds like the meeting's not so secret anymore.
  • Persephone: That's where you come in. Spy on her and report back to me. I'm trusting you with this. Please, don't let me down.

Kassandra took her leave and traveled to Iphigenia's Compound.

  • Kassandra: Looks like this is my chance to find out what Hekate's up to, too.

At the compound, Ikaros identified the building where Hekate held her meeting.

  • Kassandra: There she is!

Kassandra infiltrated the compound and made her way to the building's entrance. Inside, she knelt beside a large planter to eavesdrop on Hekate and her associate, who turned out to be Hermes.

  • Hekate: I was wondering when you'd arrive, locksmith.
  • Hermes: You know I prefer Key Maker.
  • Hekate: Your mastery of language is overwhelming as always. How you stay so humble is beyond me.
  • Hermes: You know why I'm here, Hekate. We need to talk about your newfound friend, the Keeper.
  • Hekate: Don't worry, I didn't tell Kassandra about the key to the underworld you cleverly disguised as Ros' collar. Why would I want her running straight to Persephone's palace?
  • Hermes: It's not about that. I know you've been spending a lot of time together. And undermining Persephone in the process.

  • Hekate: Kassandra has been undermining Persephone, not me. At least, that's what Persephone will see when I'm through.
  • Hermes: I'm all too familiar with your ability to whisper in Persephone's ear, but whatever tale you spin for her isn't the truth, is it? You've been trying to push Persephone out of power.

  • Hekate: Hermes, you know her quest for control is corrupting her. You must see that Persephone has changed.
  • Hermes: The only one who wants control is you. Why can't you support her? It's true. You are jealous of her.
  • Hekate: Doing everything Persephone tells you isn't helping her, Hermes. Let alone getting you what you so desperately desire.
  • Hermes: Could either of us really help her after what she's gone through? But I'm no traitor.

Kassandra had heard enough and decided to leave before she was spotted.

  • Kassandra: I need to get to Persephone first no matter what.

Kassandra had heard enough and decided to leave before she was spotted.

  • Kassandra: I need to get to Persephone first no matter what.

Kassandra had heard enough and decided to leave before she was spotted.

  • Kassandra: I need to get to Persephone first no matter what.

With her business in Iphigenia's Compound dealt with, Kassandra hurried back to Pheraphassa Point.

Kassandra's timely exit allowed her to reach Persephone first.

  • Persephone: So? What did you find out?
  • Kassandra: Hekate's been working behind your back.

Hekate arrived and overheard her remark.

  • Hekate: What folly is this? An outsider accusing me of treason? After breaking into your sanctuary?

Persephone stared daggers at Kassandra.

Hekate's swift departure allowed her to reach Persephone first, putting her scheme against Kassandra into motion. <dialogue>

  • Kassandra: I couldn't have gotten in if Hekate hadn't given me the key.
  • Persephone: But you did break in?
  • Kassandra: Yes. To steal a journal about the gate to the underworld.

Persephone turned to Hekate.

  • Persephone: You are the only one with the key.
  • Hekate: Kassandra stole it from me. Just like she stole the last of Lethe's water from the cave.

  • Kassandra: Hekate is trying to frame me. I had nothing to do with the break-in.

Persephone turned to Hekate.

  • Persephone: You are the only one with the key.
  • Hekate: Kassandra stole it from me. Just like she stole the last of Lethe's water from the cave.

  • Persephone: But Kassandra destroyed it. Don't play games with me, Hekate. I know who was behind Lethe's water circulating in Elysium.

  • Hekate: The point is, there's been trouble in Elysium ever since you got here. That's no coincidence. You're clearly trying to push Persephone out of power.

  • Kassandra: I may be working against Persephone, but you've been helping me the entire time.
  • Persephone: There, out of your own mouth! You're trying to overthrow me.
  • Hekate: You can't believe these lies. A silver tongue joined the the delinquents operating in Deukalion's Heritage after this outsider helped her.

  • Kassandra: Half of Elysium knows Hekate wants you out of power, Persephone. Why can't you see that?
  • Hekate: You can't believe these lies. A silver tongue joined the the delinquents operating in Deukalion's Heritage after this outsider helped her.

  • Persephone: I've heard her myself. She's singing your praises as an ally to humans.
  • Hekate: What? I...
  • Persephone: Start being honest, Hekate. And fast.

  • Hekate: Furthermore, a gathering of your most devoted followers was recently targeted.

  • Persephone: Yes, all poisoned with aconite, which you have quite the green thumb for.
  • Hekate: Curiously, the last of my batch was stolen from me right before the party.
  • Kassandra: It wasn't me.

  • Persephone: Yes... No one was hurt, but aconite was found in the wine. Your signature death sentence, if I recall correctly.
  • Hekate: Curiously, the last of my batch was stolen from me right before the party.
  • Kassandra: It wasn't me.

  • Hekate: Is it a coincidence, then, outsider, that someone matching your description was seen fleeing from the Followers' symposium?
  • Persephone: Enough! I have reason to suspect the both of you of treason at this point. Hekate is my oldest friend in the underworld. And for a while, I thought, my truest. Give me one reason why I should believe your word over hers.

  • Kassandra: This is all part of her plan, but your instincts were right, Persephone. Hekate's the traitor.

  • Kassandra: Hekate has always been jealous of you. She wants your power over Elysium for herself.

  • Hekate: You can't possibly take the word of an outsider over mine. Persephone?

  • Persephone: Whatever part Kassandra played in my misfortunes as of late, you played the larger role. And you are supposed to be my confidant in the underworld. My best friend.
  • Hekate: I had the best intentions.
  • Persephone: Whatever you were trying to do, you betrayed me.

A servant ran up to them out of breath.

  • Servant to Persephone: We've received word those delinquents in Deukalion's Heritage are on the move.
  • Persephone: Not now.
  • Servant to Persephone: This is urgent, my queen.
  • Persephone: Fine. I'll handle this later.

Persephone left to deal with the rebellion brewing outside her palace, leaving Kassandra and Hekate alone for the time being.

  • Kassandra: I should have known you would stab me in the back.
  • Hekate: You can't betray someone you never held any loyalty for.

Hekate left. Kassandra left the palace to continue her efforts to help the rebellion.

Outcome

Kassandra was tasked by Persephone to spy on Hekate at Iphigenia's Compound. It turned out Hekate was using Kassandra and wanted to blame her for everything. Hekate was also trying to gain control of Elysium for herself and revealed that the collar of Ros was the key to the underworld.

Eventually Persephone either sided with Hekate or Kassandra, based upon choices made during previous memories.

Behind the scenes

  • The name of the memory references the saying "No good deed goes unpunished". It may also be a reference to the song in the Broadway musical Wicked, as there are three other quests in the DLC that have a similar naming scheme, all of which are in Hekate's quest line.
  • This quest references previous choices made in Hekate's quest line. Some decisions made will either help or hurt Kassandra's argument against Hekate:
    • Good News – Instructing Isadore sing Hekate's praises as an ally of the humans will be used against Hekate
    • Have Another Drink – Destroying Lethe's water during Have Another Drink helps Kassandra's argument
    • Breaking into the sanctuary during Sudden and New and poisoning the symposium during Popular are always brought up. How they help or hurt is uncertain, but Persephone appears to blame both the break-in and the poisoning—or attempt thereof—on Hekate, as she is the only one with the key and the green thumb for aconite, respectively.
    • Choosing Wait twice and then Leave when eavesdropping on Hekate and Hermes allows Kassandra to leave with all the information she needs while also reaching Persephone before Hekate. Waiting a third time, or Interrupting at any time, will allow Hekate to escape and reach Persephone first, which will hurt Kassandra's argument.
