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


Kassandra travelled to Achaia to meet with Darius.


Kassandra stood aboard the Adrestia as a new message arrived.

  • Find Me: Eagle Bearer, we parted ways after some dire events, and the effects linger even as we continue tome. Look above when you are in the western village in Achaia. You'll find me there.
  • Kassandra: I should go to Dyme and see who this is is...

Kassandra set sail for Achaia and made her way to the Istion Valley, where the village of Dyme stood. On the roof of a house on top of the hill, a familiar, yet still mysterious, hooded man crouched in wait for her. She climbed the building and spoke with him.

  • Kassandra: Darius. Do you ever rest?

He laughed half-heartedly at her remark.

  • Darius: After Makedonia, after the Huntsman... Nowhere in the Greek world will ever be safe. Not for us. We can never rest. We can never stop running.

  • Kassandra: The Order have your scent and mine. If you stay still for too long—
  • Darius: Natakas dies. All we can do is keep moving.

He looked down.

  • Darius: Even if all I want is to stay.

  • Kassandra: I don't see Natakas—
  • Darius: That's why I sent the note.
  • Kassandra: Trouble?
  • Darius: We came to Achaia seeking a ship bound for distant shores. A simple plan, but like so many simple plans...
  • Kassandra: It got complicated.

He turned her attention to the fleet sailing northeast.

  • Darius: That fleet is bound for Patrai. It's not the first. Something there is not right. Relentless military patrols, naval blockades... Natakas went to secure us a boat out, but he hasn't returned.

(Asked "What do you think happened to Natakas?")

  • Kassandra: You must have some idea about what happened to Natakas.
  • Darius: He's smart. Knows to keep to the shadows. With this much military power stationed in Achaia, he's more likely hiding than—

Darius paused, thinking of the word "dead," and it saddened him to associate that word with his son. Kassandra reassured him.

  • Kassandra: He's out there, Darius.

(Asked "What is happening in Patrai?")

  • Kassandra: What do you think is going on here?
  • Darius: Something big. Natakas may have learned more about what's happening there. It could be the Order.
  • Kassandra: All the more reason to find him.

(Leave – "We'll find Natakas.")

  • Kassandra: Natakas won't be hard to find.

Darius looked towards the eastern road.

  • Darius: He took that road to Patrai.
  • Kassandra: Then that's where we start.
  • Darius: Follow me.

Darius walked to the edge, spread his arms like an eagle, and leapt into a dive. He flipped forward in midair and landed safely on his back into a thick bale of hay below. Kassandra scoffed at his athletic feat.

  • Kassandra: Mmm, I've done it from higher.

Before she could follow, a watchman yelled at her for being on the roof.

  • Roof Guard: Hey! Hey you! You on the roof!
  • Kassandra: Yes?
  • Roof Guard: That's not your roof!
  • Kassandra: You're right.

Rather than risk provoking the rooftop guard, Kassandra walked to the edge.

  • Roof Guard: People always jumping off roofs around here... Better put down more hay.

Kassandra performed the same leap into the pile of hay below.

  • Roof Guard: Oh no! No-no-no! She jumped!

She climbed out of the hay to meet Darius.

  • Darius: Follow me.

They mounted horses and rode out of Dyme towards Patrai.

  • Darius: Something happened to Natakas between here and Patrai. We must find him.
  • Kassandra: We will, Darius. We will.

[Ride through the valley]

[Investigation of slain guards]

[Continue the ride]

  • Darius: There were guards at the bridge. Didn't you see? It was too exposed. Natakas would know better.

They continued east, then southeast. As they rode up the hill, they were ambushed.

[This could easily be out of order and missing some. Dialogue just kept firing one line after another at full gallop.]

  • Darius: Ambush!
  • Kassandra: I can see that.
  • Darius: Cut them down, Kassandra!
  • Greek Soldier: The Tempest's word is law!
  • Kassandra: Working on it.
  • Darius: We can't outrun them!
  • Hektor: Ooh, this one's Persian!
  • Kassandra: Don't need to outrun them!
  • Darius: You have a plan?
  • Kassandra: Violence!
  • Greek Soldier: Cut them down!
  • Greek Soldier: Stop right there!

After slaying the soldiers, they continued east towards the Teichos of Herakles. At the foot of the mountain to the east, Darius bid her to dismount and follow him.

  • Darius: Kassandra, over here!

They spied a camp full of soldiers lying in wait. They crouched down.

  • Kassandra: They're searching for something.
  • Darius: Look at their body language. They want blood.
  • Kassandra: They'll get it.
  • Darius: We need a plan. If Natakas is hiding here, he could be drawn into heavy battle.

  • Kassandra: If we move quietly, we can pick off the guards one by one.

Darius was pleased with her answer.

  • Darius: A wise plan, Eagle Bearer.

[Raid the camping guards, choice to charge in or keep to the shadows (probably plays out like Revealing the Recruiter)]

  • Darius: Clear the perimeter. Quietly.

They advanced on the camp through the bushes.

  • Darius: Be fast. Be silent.

They reached a large bush and got into position. There were five guards in total.

  • Greek Soldier: Look for the Persian! He might still be here.

Kassandra advanced on the guard.

  • Darius: Quietly, Eagle Bearer.

Darius directed her to take the nearby guard while he advanced on another.

  • Darius: You take that one. I'll take this one.
  • Greek Soldier: Search the area! He might be hiding.

Kassandra struck down her target.

  • Darius: This kill's mine.

Darius assassinated his target. He complimented Kassandra.

  • Darius: A good kill.

Kassandra killed the third guard, then the fourth, and finally the fifth.

After slaying the last guard, Natakas revealed himself, along with a little girl. Kassandra turned around and smiled at him.

  • Kassandra: Natakas.
  • Natakas: Kassandra:

  • Kassandra: Told you we'd meet again. "Trust me," I said.
  • Natakas: It must be hard for you, being right all the time.
  • Kassandra: It's a burden I do my best to bear.

  • Natakas: Well. I'm glad to see you, Kassandra.

  • Kassandra: And I'm glad to see you. When I heard you might be in trouble—
  • Natakas: You jumped on your horse and raced to the rescue?
  • Kassandra: I'm not sure you needed rescuing.
  • Natakas: Still.

Darius ran up to them, cutting their conversation short.
