Sisters of the Axe was a virtual representation of one of Eivor Varinsdottir's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5.

Description

Eivor heard several women talking in a church and decided to help.

Dialogue

Eivor came upon a small church with a locked door. From inside, she could hear people speaking.

  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: We will leave under the cover of night. I will enter the camp alone.
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 2: We will not leave you, Editha, no matter the danger. No matter the risks. We do this together or not at all.
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 3: Quiet! I thought I heard something.
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 4: What do we do?
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: Do absolutely nothing, I will do the talking.

Near a broken grave behind the church, Eivor found the key to the door and went inside. Inside were four nuns.

  • Eivor: Don't you know it's forbidden to consort like this under God's roof?
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: Take what you want, heathen. Just leave us be.
  • Eivor: You must be the abbess here. Why do you hide in a musky old church?
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: We are not hiding. We sought to flee the shire in the midst of this ungodly war. But in our haste to leave, I lost my crosier. Fell into the hands of some guards in a camp just below., and I am not leaving without it.
  • Eivor: Dangerous endeavor for three sisters of the cloth. What is your plan? You're gonna bore them with Bible passages until they give it back?
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: "Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

Eivor laughed.

  • Eivor: It just may work. Or better yet, I can get your crosier back.
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: You would help us?
  • Eivor: Mercian soldiers make good practice, and now I am invested in your plight. Lead the way.

Together, they left the church. Eivor followed Editha toward the soldier's camp.

  • Eivor: How long since you fled the ministry?
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: Must be weeks now. We had no plan and no help. We just knew we had to get out of Ledecestre. Whether it is Burgred on the throne or one of yours, makes no difference. Their reign would be less than godly. No offense.
  • Eivor: None taken.

Eivor and the sisters reached the edge of the camp.

  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: This is the camp. One of them has my crosier.

Eivor entered the camp and began taking out the soldiers

  • Eivor: The Abbess's crosier should be somewhere in this camp.

Eivor was spotted and the soldiers began to attack. Editha and the sisters ran in to help, fighting the soldiers bare-fisted. Together, they defeated the last of the soldiers and Eivor retrieved the crosier from one of the bodies.

  • Eivor: The crosier. I have it.
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: Let's go, down to the river!

Eivor followed the sisters out of the camp toward the river that marked the border of the shire.

  • Eivor: You're unlike any sisters I have seen, bare-fisting armed men like that.
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." We Christians take matters into our own hands well enough. We are nearly there! Lincolnscire is on the other side.

At the edge of the river, they came across a pack of wolves.

  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: Wolves! Not today, devils. Not today.

They killed the wolves.

  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: Let's cross, sisters.
  • Eivor: Now I've seen everything.

On the other side of the river, the sisters gathered.

  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: That is far enough. Sisters, gather round. Let us pray to the Lord our God, and thank him for watching over us.

Eivor spoke to Editha again, returning the crosier.

  • Eivor: Your crosier.
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: The Lord sent me a shepherd to help lead my flock today. Thank you. You did not have to do what you did.
  • Eivor: There is truth to that. You would have done fine on your own. I will never look upon sisters of the cloth the same way after today.
  • Anglo-Saxon Woman 1: And I will never look upon heathens the same way. Farewell.

Leaving the women at their small camp, Eivor returned to the church for another look around. At the back, she found a journal entry.

Abbess Editha's Journal
We have followed the guards back to their camp. They have my crosier and I plan to get it back. I only hope that I can quiet the voices of doubt in my head.

On the one hand, I fear I am putting my sisters in grave danger. On the other hand, I believe this may well be a test. We shall soon see.

Outcome

Together with Eivor's help, the nuns recovered their crosier from a nearby bandit camp and found safety across the Brant River.
