Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-Odyssey

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


Kassandra approached Alkibiades to obtain clues about her mother's whereabouts.


In an attempt to find more information about her missing mother, Kassandra decided to talk to Alkibiades. Hearing sounds from his closed room, she mistook it for violence.

  • Kassandra: Someone's being hurt. Open this door, or I'll kick it in!

Alkibiades opened the door, at which point a goat walked out. A man and a woman stood within as well.

  • Alkibiades: Don't mind her. She likes to watch. Look at you. Such authority, such aggression. I can see why Perikles has taken such an interest in you. Did you come to join us?
  • Kassandra: It sounded like someone was in pain.
  • Alkibiades: Well, it can sometimes be... hard to distinguish between sounds of pleasure and pain. Had I known you were going to knock, I would have left my door wide, wide open for you.

  • Kassandra: I only came to this symposium to find someone.
  • Alkibiades: Sounds like we can help each other then, doesn't it? You fetch us a bit of oil, I help you find who you're looking for. Maybe they're in here.
  • Kassandra: She's not in here.
  • Alkibiades: I think I'll check all the same.

  • Kassandra: I thought this party was tame, even by Athenian standards... until now.
  • Alkibiades: Let them have their meeting of the minds. I'm more interested in meeting... other parts.
  • Woman: Allie! We're out of oil again!
  • Kassandra: Allie?
  • Alkibiades: You know they like you when they give you a pet name. There's more olive oil in the kitchen... but Aspasia keeps complaining about me walking unencumbered through her symposiums.
  • Kassandra: You mean naked.
  • Alkibiades: It sounds so good when you say it.

Kassandra took a jug of oil. (If players choose "Here's your oil.")

  • Kassandra: I come bearing gifts.
  • Alkibiades: We're saved! Today, these women grieved for their sons, and these men worked the wall. But tonight we forget all that. Let's have some fun! What do you say? Care to join us?

  • Kassandra: Time for some fun. You'll have to help me strip off these uncomfortable Athenian robes.
  • Alkibiades: Gladly. If you like, we can feed them to the goat.
  • Kassandra: There's another goat?

The doors closed behind them. In time, Kassandra emerged.

  • Kassandra: Now it's time for you to help me, "Allie." I'm looking for someone.

  • Kassandra: Now it's time for you to help me, "Allie." I'm looking for someone.

  • Alkibiades: All business, right until the end. I like that.
  • Kassandra: Focus. I'm looking for a woman who fled Sparta a long, long time ago.
  • Alkibiades: Fled Sparta? No one flees Sparta! But, let's pretend she did. If she were stupid, she'd be dead. If she were smart, she'd do what Aspasia did - she'd earn her independence. The smartest and most... resourceful woman I've ever met have been in Korinthia.

  • Kassandra: The hetaerae? I've heard they play some sort of role in Korinth, but I assumed it was the same as any other city.
  • Alkibiades: Oh no, these women are unlike any other you'll meet - a force, and the only ones there with any smarts.

  • Kassandra: Prostitutes? This is serious.
  • Alkibiades: They don't like being called that. And for good reason. They offer so much more than their bodies.
  • Kassandra: Such as?
  • Alkibiades: These women are companions. Counselors. Confidantes. Powerful men come to the hetaerae asking for advice, and value their words more than those of their closest friends and advisors.

  • Man: Allie! Come back inside!
  • Alkibiades: The celebration continues! When you reach Korinth, find Anthousa. No one goes in - or out - of the city without her knowing. Until we meet again, warrior.

Alkibiades went back into his room, closing the door.

  • Kassandra: Anthousa in Korinth. It's not much, but it's a start.


Kassandra was asked to seek out Anthousa, a friend of Alkibiades, in Korinthia, who may have information of her mother.
