Prince of Persia (alternatively known as The Blind King) was a virtual representation of one of Kassandra's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5.

Description

Kassandra met a blind Persian man near the Temple of Apollo and agreed to be his eyes as she traveled around the world for landmarks

Description

Kassandra spoke to an old man near the Temple of Apollo.

  • Artaxerxes: You there. You have a kind soul. Help an old man buy this next meal?

  • Kassandra: Your... soul also seems kind.
  • Artaxerxes: I am grateful and humbled, stranger. Tell me, what do they call you?

  • Kassandra: If you knew the things I've done, you wouldn't be so quick to call me kind.
  • Artaxerxes: Nonsense. Your soul is greater than the sum of your actions, stranger... Tell me, what do they call you?

  • Kassandra: You need it more than me. Here, take it.
  • Artaxerxes: A generous gift. Thank you. What do they call you, stranger?

  • Kassandra: You and I have something in common. Neither of us has any drachmae.
  • Artaxerxes: Your company is gift enough, but... I don't know your name. Who do they call you?

  • Kassandra: I'm Kassandra. And you?

  • Kassandra: Depends on who's asking... But my name is Kassandra. And you are?

  • Kassandra: I'm the Messenger of Zeus. But you can call me Kassandra. And you are?

  • Artaxerxes: Just a simple beggar. I sailed from Persia to see the beauty of the Greek world.
  • Kassandra: I can do many things, Persian, but I can't restore sight.
  • Artaxerxes: Nor would I want you to. My blindness is a burden that the gods have given me to carry, and I will.
  • Kassandra: Then what?
  • Artaxerxes: Be my eyes. When I was a boy, an Athenian told me the most beautiful of your lands. I would love to hear them again. Would you go to see the places I never was able to, and return to tell me the tale of your adventures?
  • Kassandra: I'm not much of a storyteller, but I will be your eyes.
  • Artaxerxes: I know I sensed kindess in you. You've made this old Persian happy again.
  • Kassandra: Don't thank me yet. What places do you wish you could have seen?
  • Artaxerxes: Ah, my favourite tales were always of the Akrokorinth, the statues of Zeus and Athena, the perch of the armored bird in Arkadia, and of course, the mysterious Mount Taygetos.

(If players choose "Where is the Statue of Zeus?")

  • Kassandra: So, tell me what you know about the Statue of Zeus.
  • Artaxerxes: "Its great bolt stood ready to punish the Kephallonias below," or so I was told.

(If players choose "Where is the Statue of Athena?")

  • Kassandra: There are many statues to Athena. Which one do you mean?
  • Artaxerxes: In my mind, there is only one. Her story always began, "As we're rounded the hilltops, we could see Athens bustling below us, and Athena above, matching our gaze.

(If players choose "Where is the Akrokorinth?")

  • Kassandra: The Akrokorinth... Don't tell me, it's in Korinthia.
  • Artaxerxes: Smart guess. It is the most renowned temple to Aphrodite, your goddess of all life's most pleasurable trivialities.

(If players choose "Where is Mount Taygetos?")

  • Kassandra: You did say Mount Taygetos, didn't you?
  • Artaxerxes: You sound like you know that place... I have heard tales of its appetites. They say the mountain feeds on the suffering of Spartans, so the people there offer their own children to the mountain god for sacrifice.
  • Kassandra: That... that's not exactly right.

(If players choose "Where is the armored bird?")

  • Kassandra: What do you remember about this armored bird in Arkadia?
  • Artaxerxes: There's a beast made of armor jutting out from the mountainside, overlooking Lake Stymphalos and the undulating fields stretching like waves on a golden sea all across Akradia.

(If players choose "I'll be back soon?")

  • Kassandra: I'll be back with stories to tell.
  • Artaxerxes: As soon as you've seen one location, please return.

Kassandra visited the Lightning Zeus in Kephallonia. After exploring the statue, she recovered a papyrus.

  • Kassandra: This papyrus is so old... Could this be writing by Themistokles?
  • Themistokles on Kephallonia:
    Zeus's mighty figure stood aloft, its great bolt ready to punish the Kephallonians below. This is how the Kephallonians were destined to live - under the shadow of a god always watching and ready to judge.

Next, Kassandra visited the Statue of Athena on the Akropolis Sanctuary, finding another papyrus.

  • Kassandra: A papyrus. Says it was written by Themistokles, the Athenian general.
  • Themistokles on Athens:
    As we rounded the hilltops, we could see Athens bustling below us and Athena above, matching our gaze. There, she eternally mourned our suffering with dignity and grace.
