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

Description

After learning of her friend Anais' relevation that she was married, Kassandra returned to her farm to learn more.

Dialogue

Kassandra returned to Anais at her farm.

  • Anais: I'm glad you came.
  • Kassandra: So you're married. Why didn't you tell me sooner?
  • Anais: Seeing you brought back so many fond memories, I wanted to live in them for as long as I could. Life's been hard since Dantos left.
  • Kassandra: Where did he go?
  • Anais: Once the war started, Spartans came for his sword. He was killed in battle... Leaving me to run the farm and raise our son.
  • Kassandra: You have a son?
  • Anais: Arion. I'd love for you to meet him, but he's run off again.
  • Kassandra: Why aren't we looking for him?
  • Anais: He always goes to the same cave, where he trains to be a mighty warrior.

  • Kassandra: Training alone encourages bad habits.

  • Anais: Yes of course! You've given me an idea. You could take to him.
  • Kassandra: I could?
  • Anais: Gods know he doesn't listen to his boring mother. But you've seen death up close... You could convince him to stay away from fighting and help me on the farm.

(Accept – I'll talk to your son.)

  • Kassandra: All right, I'll talk to your son.
  • Anais: Thank you.

(If players choose "How should I introduce myself?")

  • Kassandra: How should I introduce myself without scaring the boy?
  • Anais: Tell him you're a friend of his mother's from Kephallonia—the one with the eagle. The stories I've told him about you are his favourites.

(If players choose "What can you tell me about his father?")

  • Kassandra: is there anything about your son's father I should know to help me connect with him?
  • Anais: Dantos broke his finger working the fields. It healed crooked. When Arion asked about it, my husband said he was so strong as a baby, he grabbed it and snapped it like a twig. This is how we knew he was blessed by Herakles.

(If players choose "I'll find your son.")

  • Kassandra: I'll find Arion.
  • Anais: My husband used to take him to the cave on hunts—they'd spend nights there. It's been taken over by wolves since then.
  • Kassandra: Wait, did you say wolves?
  • Anais: Yes, worries me sick. He calls them his "friends," and believe it or not they seem protective of the boy. Please don't harm them, Kassandra. Arion would be devastated.
ACOD Runaway - Kassandra Enters Cave

Kassandra in the cave

Kassandra headed to the cave near Mount Psophis, finding a pack of wolves guarding the entrance. She managed to sneak inside without harming the creatures, finding Arion on top of a cliff.

  • Arion: Whoa! You look like a mighty warrior.
  • Kassandra: And you must be Arion. I've come to bring you home.
  • Arion: Why should I trust you?

  • Kassandra: Your mother and I used to get into trouble back on Kephallonia?
  • Arion: Kephallonia?

  • Kassandra: We'd sneak into the markets, grab as much cheese and grapes and bread as we could carry. My eagle Ikaros kept watch and warned us if there was anyone coming.
  • Arion: You're Kassandra the Eagle Bearer!
  • Kassandra: Your mother trusted me with the very important task of escorting you home through this dangerous forest.
  • Arion: But I don't want to leave.
  • Kassandra: I know you come here to be close to your father.
  • Arion: You know nothing about my pater!

  • Kassandra: I know when you were a baby, you broke his finger with the strength of Herakles.
  • Arion: Pater's fingers were big and tought. That's why I train—to make these hands strong like his.
  • Kassandra: I understand, but first we need to leave this cave. The wolves are getting hungry.
  • Arion: They'd never eat me. They're my friends.

Arion began climbing down.

  • Kassandra: Um, yes, your friends. Let's go anyway, your mother misses you very much.
  • Arion: If I do, could you teach me to be a mighty warrior?
  • Kassandra: We'll see. Now come.

ACOD Runaway - Leaving Cave

Kassandra and Arion leaving the cave

Having managed to get Arion to trust her, Kassandra led Arion out of the cave. They returned to the farm.

  • Anais: There you both are.
  • Arion: You didn't have to send anyone after me, mater. I can take care of myself.
  • Anais: I know you can, my love.

(If Kassandra had told Arion of the stories Anais had given her)

  • Arion: You told her about me, mater. She knew things.
  • Anais: I did. She wanted to know all about you so you weren't scared of going with her.
  • Arion: I wasn't scared. I was brave.
  • Anais: Thank you for bringing him home.

Outcome

Kassandra helped Anais to look for her son Arion and bring him back safely.
