Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-Odyssey

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

Description

While in Athens, Kassandra met General Demosthenes, who hoped Kassandra would help him ensure Athens would be victorious in the war.

Dialogue

  • Kassandra: I'll get you your seals.
  • Demosthenes: The sooner the better.

  • Kassandra: What do you think of the Spartans?
  • Demosthenes: If you were to ask General Neon that, he'd tell you they were mindless brutes. That's half true. They have a base sort of cunning. It shouldn't be enough to withstand Athenian might. Assuming the other generals make intelligent decisions instead of stalling.
  • Kassandra: You do know I'm of Spartan birth?
  • Demosthenes: You're more skilled than the average Spartan. In time, you might even manage Athenian citizenship.
  • Kassandra: The true pinnacle of success.
  • Demosthenes: Of course. I wish I had more say over our naval forces. What I could do to the Spartans then...

  • Kassandra: Have you held this command for long?
  • Demosthenes: I've been a general in the army for a long time. I made some mistakes in my early days, but I more than made up for them after. Still, everyone attributes my victories to luck. Never to my own decisions.
  • Kassandra: I see how that could be frustrating.
  • Demosthenes: Other men take credit for my victories. Cautious men who cause needless deaths by overlooking opportunities. You know what happens to a General who loses his reputation? Who gets blamed for the loss of Athenian lives?
  • Kassandra: Nothing good.
  • Demosthenes: He dies. So I will do everything to preserve Athenian lives. Maybe one day, I'll even get credit for my accomplishments.

  • Kassandra: Why do you need these seals?
  • Demosthenes: I need those seals to shove in the faces of the assembled generals, to get them to wake up. While they've been debating and stalling, I've been winning the war.

("Leave – I have what I need.")

  • Kassandra: I know what I have to do.

(If the seals have already been acquired.)

  • Kassandra: Actually, I already have them. I may have killed a few more Spartan commanders than you'd mentioned.
  • Demosthenes: An overachiever. Maybe you are as good as they say. Would you be interested in more work?

Kassandra returned to the general after finishing her task.

  • Demosthenes: Do you have the seals for me?
  • Kassandra: I do.
  • Demosthenes: More seals, and more proof what we're doing is working. Thankfully, there are at least some people in power willing to listen to me.
  • Kassandra: I'll leave the politics to you.
  • Demosthenes: As it should be. And I have more work for you, assuming you're up for it.

  • Kassandra: I'm always interested in more work.

  • Kassandra: I have some other jobs I need to do first.

Kassandra returns. (Dialogue returns to "Do you have the seals for me?" then back to dialogue choice one.)

  • Demosthenes: I was worried about employing a mercenary, but you've been a pleasant surprise.
  • Kassandra: Yes. That's what they all call me. A pleasant surprise.
  • Demosthenes: I suspect if they call you anything offensive, they don't live long.
  • Kassandra: I couldn't say.
  • Demosthenes: At least I have you working with me, instead of getting in my way.
  • Kassandra: Other generals giving you trouble?
  • Demosthenes: They refuse to acknowledge I know what I'm doing. But it doesn't matter. I'll get the job done, and eventually all of Athens will know it. Are you ready for more work?

(Dialogue continues to start the next quest.)

  • Kassandra: Not now. Maybe later.

Kassandra returns.

  • Demosthenes: Are you ready to work with me yet?

(Back to dialogue choice one.)

Outcome

Kassandra acquired 3 polemarch seals. In return, he gave her his greaves.
