Kassandra traveled to Hermes' Workshop in Minos' Faith. Hermes greeted her.
- Hermes: Ah, you again! Always nice to see a friendly face.
Kassandra approached him at his desk.
- Hermes: Keeper, you've found my workshop after all. I know it may not look like much, but it's home.
- Kassandra: I told you. You can call me Kassandra.
- Hermes: In front of the Staff? Pah! But I'm glad you came. There's much to show you in this great land.
- Kassandra: If you're offering, I could use some help getting my bearings.
- Hermes: Oh, give yourself time. The golden fields reveal themselves slowly and selectively. But I can help. Walk with me.
- Kassandra: Maybe you're right. I need to clear my head. Where to?
- Hermes: I consider myself a key maker. One of my keys might interest you.
Kassandra left to attend to her other matters, then returned.
- Hermes: Let's stretch our legs. There's a place I want to show you.
Hermes led away out of the workshop to a pair of horses. They mounted the horses and rode up the path.
- Kassandra: What do you do in your workshop?
- Hermes: Invent. All of reality's secrets are hidden behind doors. My inventions act as keys that unlock those doors.
- Kassandra: You... reveal the secrets behind them.
- Hermes: Ah! You're as wise as Pythagoras. But why discuss what we can see for ourselves?
Hermes dismounted his horse near the Mausoleum of the Kingless Queen.
- Hermes: Observe, way up there. Persephone's first keep. If only you could have seen it when it was new.
- Kassandra: It seems like most of Elysium is in ruins. What happened?
- Hermes: This place is beautiful, as are all of Persephone's creations. But it is a world that changes at her whims. When I see decay, I know she needs us at her side more than ever.
Hermes remounted his horse and rode on. Kassandra followed him to the cliff overlooking Ariadne's Fields.
- Hermes: Look there! Imagine all the heroes who have passed through those golden fields, basking in the glory of eternal peace. Each thinking they'd seen nothing more beautiful, only then to set eyes on Persephone.
Hermes led on to the cliff across a lake from the Mortal Encampment.
- Hermes: Look there, Keeper! That encampment is the site where Hephaistos built a home for Aphrodite.
- Kassandra: Doesn't look like much now.
- Hermes: It stood tall until Aphrodite met that child Adonis. His ability to wreak havoc with a wink and a smile is second to none.
Hermes led down the cliff through the shallow waters and ended the tour at the Ruins of Rhadamanthos. He dismounted one last time.
- Hermes: Come! That cave leads to a key I built for the Staff. Consider it our secret. The Key Maker and the Staff Keeper, friends bound by mysteries.
Kassandra climbed her way to the top of the ruins of Rhadamanthos and found an entrance to the Veiled Altar of Hermes tucked at the summit. She leapt into the hole and found the Keeper's Insight, then made her way back to Hermes.
- Kassandra: What happened to me in there?
- Hermes: Imagine for a moment—inside you, inside all of us, are parchments twisting like ribbon. On those parchments is written the story of who you are, who you were, and who you will become. Does that make sense?
- Kassandra: Like everything else here, I don't understand any of it.
- Hermes: Let's call it the Fates, then. Your fate is predetermined, but what you experienced in there was a key I built that can unlock it and allow you to control it. I've built many.
