Kassandra infiltrated the warehouse.
- Kassandra: This is the place. Time to burn some cargo.
Within, she found victims of the Monger, tied up and awaiting to be shipped off and sold into slavery. Kassandra freed the people, and set fire to the Monger's cargo of contraband. Drawn by the fire, the Monger's men found Kassandra and attacked her. However, Brasidas, a Spartan officer, threw his spear into an assailant to make his entrance. He retrieved his spear and goaded the others to attack.
- Brasidas: Come and get it.
The two Spartans worked together to defeat the superior numbers and burst out of the blazing warehouse to dispatch those who remained outside. They exchanged greetings after the fight.
- Brasidas: You fight like a Spartan! There's resolve in you.
- Kassandra: We have that in common.
- Brasidas: I saw innocents trapped in the flames.
- Kassandra: The ones in the warehouse? I freed them already.
- Brasidas: A good soldier acts when he's told. A great one is two steps ahead. Thank you.
- Kassandra: What do you want to do with him?
- Brasidas: Right now, the Monger rules Korinth. I want to replace him with minimal bloodshed.
- Kassandra: He'll only be dethroned if he's killed. It's simple.
- Brasidas: Yes, diplomacy isn't something he understands.
- Kassandra: From what I hear, I'm not surprised.
He made a slashing motion with his hand towards Kassandra.
- Brasidas: —is a quick slice of the blade.
- Kassandra: That would do it.
- Brasidas: We'd lure him into Korinthia's Sacred Cave, and it'd be over.
- Kassandra: By the time I leave Korinthia, the Monger will be dead.
- Brasidas: Do that, and Sparta will be in your debt.
Kassandra divulged her origins to Brasidas.
- Kassandra: I was Spartan once.
- Brasidas: Once?
- Kassandra: Until I was thrown off Mount Taygetos as a child and left for dead.
She turned and walked towards the pier. Brasidas was stunned as he realized who exactly she was.
- Brasidas: You're the daughter of General Nikolaos? All of Sparta knows your name! And here you are—alive—impossible.
- Kassandra: I survived. I raised myself alone while life continued in Sparta.
- Brasidas: Never mind being a Spartan. Those of good character will forgive, and should be forgiven.
- Kassandra: I'm on the hunt for my mother, Myrrine, and the only way is through Anthousa.
- Brasidas: Yes. Myrrine.
- Kassandra: There's no going back now.
- Brasidas: The displaced can always find their way home. The gods have just decided you must fight for it.
- Kassandra: They couldn't make it any easier?
- Brasidas: But he disappeared, and his body was never found. The state pronounced him dead.
- Kassandra: That's all right. I haven't seen him since I was a child.
- Brasidas: Chin up, Spartan. Easy doesn't exist.
- Kassandra: Goodbye, Brasidas.
The two shook hands.
- Brasidas: We'll meet again. I'm in the fight with you. Show courage.
Brasidas walked away while Kassandra looked out at the bay.
Kassandra destroyed the Monger's warehouse, sending a powerful message to Korinth and the Monger, and met Brasidas in the process.
- Killing the Monger's men during the final fight with Brasidas triggers murder bounties for each kill. Either they can act as witnesses to each other's murder, or Brasidas is improperly flagged as a potential witness to crimes, as there are no other NPCs around during this fight.
- To avoid this, simply damage them just enough that Brasidas can deliver the killing blow. Alternatively, players can use the automatic bounty(ies) to lure in bounty hunters to kill and raise the hero's mercenary rank, but be warned that allied NPCs like Brasidas will not aid the player in mercenary fights.
