Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-Odyssey

Speak No Evil was a virtual representation of one of Kassandra's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5.

Description

Having learned what she needed from the priests, Kassandra sought out Mydon, who had key information about her mother.

Dialogue

Now knowing Mydon's location thanks to the priests of Asklepios, Kassandra made her way to the guesthouse in order to interrogate him. Once she had dealt with the guards, Kassandra discovered the elder priest embracing a slave girl.

  • Slave: Guards!
  • Kassandra: They're dead. And you must be Mydon.
  • Slave: He doesn't speak.
  • Kassandra: So I've heard. I'm here to find out why.
  • Slave: Chrysis did this to him.

Mydon groaned.

  • Kassandra: I thought he did this to himself.
  • Slave: To prove his loyalty to her!
ACOD Speak No Evil - Kassandra Questioned Mydon

Kassandra questioning Mydon

  • Kassandra: Now why would Chrysis want an elder priest to cut out his tongue?
  • Slave: Mydon is a caring, generous man!
  • Kassandra: I want answers from him, not you. Tell me about the Spartan woman and her baby.
  • Slave: He can only answer yes or no.

  • Kassandra: I know why Chrysis made you cut out your tongue. The night my mater brought my brother here, you and your priests left him for dead. And Chrysis didn't like you telling the story.
  • Slave: That's not what happened!
  • Kassandra: What do you know? You're too young to have been there.
  • Slave: He told me the story many times before that witch stole his voice. He tried to save the baby! Did everything he could.
ACOD Speak No Evil - Myrrine Pleading Mydon

Myrrine pleading Mydon

The slave recounted the story. On a stormy night, Myrrine and Mydon argued.

  • Myrrine: I don't believe you! Dead? How can my baby be dead?
  • Mydon: I don't know what to tell you! You were lucky he survived as long as he did. That—that fall was devastating.
  • Myrrine: My baby... My baby...
  • Mydon: Listen, there's nothing we can do for you anymore. You'd best be on your way. Praise Hera.

Grief-struck, Myrrine fell to the ground, wailing.

  • Myrrine: They're gone. They're both gone...

The slave continued to defend Mydon.

  • Slave: He wept for that Spartan woman, so far from home. Her baby barely recognizable, hardly breathing.

  • Kassandra: The Spartan woman, was her name Myrrine?

Mydon nodded.

  • Kassandra: They said she had a baby with her.

Mydon nodded.

  • Kassandra: Was it hers?

Mydon nodded again.

  • Slave: The baby was close to death when they arrived. Mydon prayed for its life!

  • Kassandra: You saved the child?

Mydon shook his head.

  • Kassandra: No?
  • Slave: He did everything he could, but the baby was badly wounded.

  • Kassandra: Did she tell you where she was going?

Mydon shook his head.

  • Kassandra: Do all sanctuary priests take their servants to bed?
ACOD Speak No Evil - Slave Revealing The Truth

The slave revealing the truth

  • Slave: I am not his servant! We share a sacred bond!
  • Kassandra: Sacred. Right.

  • Kassandra: Chrysis should have had your tongue cut out! I want answers from someone who was actually there that night.

  • Kassandra: Tell me, please. I need to know.
  • Slave: Not even Apollo could save the child. Mydon told me how the Spartan woman wept. Held the baby in her arms, sang to him, before finally leaving him to the gods.

Kassandra put the pieces together and figured out her brother's ultimate fate.

  • Kassandra: Chrysis took the baby, didn't she? And she made you cut out your tongue to hide the truth.

She turned her gaze back to the slave.

  • Kassandra: Where is Chrysis?

Both the slave and the priest rubbed their necks indecisively and avoided Kassandra's gaze. They did not yield the information Kassandra sought.

  • Kassandra: I see. Chrysis possesses every tongue around here. I'll find her on my own then, and cut out a lot more.

Kassandra was forced to return to her errand for Hippokrates, as her trip to the sanctuary had been fruitless.

(If Kassandra told the slave to shut up earlier)

  • Slave: So now you want to hear what I have to say?
  • Kassandra: Don't test me. Speak!

(Otherwise)
The slave yielded the information Kassandra sought.

  • Slave: There is an altar where people offer their sick babies to be healed. This is where she took the child. Find it near the statue of Apollo Maleatas, and you'll find Chrysis.
  • Kassandra: People come to this sanctuary to heal—but I come here and find people dying without hope, priests without tongues, and babies left with an insane woman.
ACOD Speak No Evil - Mydon Apologizing

Mydon apologizing to Kassandra

Mydon folded his hands and tried to plead something, but he was unintelligible.

  • Kassandra: My mother was a fool to trust any of you. I'm going to find Chrysis, and she's going to pay for what she's done.

Kassandra stormed out.

  • Kassandra: So Chrysis is the key to finding my mater. I must find this Altar of Apollo Maleatas.

Outcome

Through Mydon, Kassandra was able to learn of Chrysis' identity as the person responsible for saving Kassandra's younger brother without her mother's knowledge.

Trivia

  • If The Doctor Will See You Now was completed prior to this conversation, Mydon's servant will divulge Chrysis' location. Otherwise, they will both rub their necks indecisively and the player character storms out, forcing the player to finish helping Hippokrates. No explanation (other than convenient game programming) is given for why the servant is helpful after that quest's completion and hesitant before it.
  • When the slave calls for the guards, Kassandra tells her they are dead, even if the player managed to avoid killing any of them.
  • The name of this quest is a reference to the three wise monkeys, and the proverb: "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil".
