Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-Odyssey

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

Description

Kassandra spoke with Elpenor in Kirrha to collect her reward for the Wolf's head.

Dialogue

Kassandra and the Adrestia set sail for Phokis, leaving Megaris behind. Once near land, Kassandra headed inland to meet with Elpenor at his house.

  • Elpenor: Ah, misthios. How was Megaris?

Kassandra slammed Nikolaos's helmet on the table.

  • Kassandra: The Wolf is dead.
  • Elpenor: Excellent. The full amount, as promised. You expected me to haggle? Come now, Kassandra. It isn't every day I have someone kill their own father. But he wasn't your real father, was he?

  • Kassandra: Why did you send me to kill Nikolaos?
  • Elpenor: Because I knew you could. Oh, why him? Because he was brillant. He would have taken Athens in a month, two at most. And Stentor doesn't have the Wolf's genius.
  • Kassandra: You wanted to save Athens?
  • Elpenor: There's no profit in a quick war.

Kassandra stared at Elpenor in disbelief.

  • Elpenor: I know, I know. It's a lot to take in all at once. Come.

The pair walked outside the building.

  • Elpenor: Tell me, misthios, did you learn anything worthwhile in your dealings with the Wolf?

  • Kassandra: He mentioned my birth father, he might still be alive.
  • Elpenor: Not for long, if all goes according to plan.
  • Kassandra: What do you mean?
  • Elpenor: You're going to bring me his head, of course.
  • Kassandra: Have you lost your mind?
  • Elpenor: You killed the man who raised you for drachmae. I merely assumed you wanted your family dead as much as I do.
  • Kassandra: Malaka! You think you can play with me? I'll cut out your tongue!

Even as she threatened Elepnor, guards already approached wearing ceremonial silver helmets and shields emblazoned with a curious emblem.

  • Kassandra: He mentioned my mother - she still lives.
  • Elpenor: Not for long, I'm afraid.
  • Kassandra: What are you talking about?
  • Elpenor: You're going to bring me her head, of course.
  • Kassandra: Are you out of your mind?
  • Elpenor: You killed the man who raised you for a sack of coins. I only assumed you wanted your family dead as much as I do.
  • Kassandra: Malaka! You think you can play with me? I'll cut out your tongue!

Even as she threatened Elepnor, guards already approached wearing ceremonial silver helmets and shields emblazoned with a curious emblem.

  • Kassandra: I'm done talking. I should kill you where you stand.
  • Elpenor: Temper, temper. And they said you'd be different. But blood is blood, I suppose.
  • Kassandra: They? What blood?
  • Elpenor: You really are more brawn than brains, aren't you? A shame, I could have used you for more of my... errands.
  • Kassandra: Malaka! You think you can play with me? I'll cut out your tongue!

Even as she threatened Elepnor, guards already approached wearing ceremonial silver helmets and shields emblazoned with a curious emblem.

  • Kassandra: How did you know Nikolaos was my stepfather?
  • Elpenor: I love theater. All of the arts, really. A great general throws his own children off a cliff on the say-so of the Oracle... It is a tragedy for the ages.
  • Kassandra: You think my life is entertainment?
  • Elpenor: Oh no, my friend. It is art. I know, I know. It's a lot to take in all at once. Come.

The pair walked outside the building.

  • Elpenor: Tell me, misthios, did you learn anything worthwhile in your dealings with the Wolf?

  • Kassandra: He mentioned my birth father, he might still be alive.
  • Elpenor: Not for long, if all goes according to plan.
  • Kassandra: What do you mean?
  • Elpenor: You're going to bring me his head, of course.

Even as she threatened Elepnor, guards already approached wearing ceremonial silver helmets and shields emblazoned with a curious emblem.

  • Kassandra: I won't be your puppet anymore!

Kassandra knocked away Nikolaos' helmet and attempted to attack Elpenor. His guards grabbed her and dragged her out of the house, throwing her onto the yard.

  • Elpenor: So disappointing.

Elpenor left and fled the area. Kassandra fought and killed the guards.

  • Kassandra: Elpenor snuck away like a coward. I should investigate his house.

She began to search his house.

  • Kassandra: A letter to Elpenor.
  • Elpenor's Note: Krethos: You were right about the Kephallonian peasant girl. She led me right to the misthios. Near the ancient ancient ruins of Kranioi. You did good work tracking them down. Now, to get them both to trust me... Did I ever tell you I was a fan of theater? As for you, find your payment in Phokis. Signed, Elpenor.
  • Kassandra: Oh Phoibe, you led him right to me.

On another table she located a papyrus scroll.

  • Kassandra: Elpenor's looking for a woman. I wonder who he wants in his slimy grasp now.
  • Papyrus to Elpenor: Elpenor, in regards to your search for the woman. If anyone would know her whereabouts, it would be that crazy priestess at the Asklepios Sanctuary. I'd go myself but she terrifies me. Yours, Antonide.

She then examined his bookshelf.

  • Kassandra: This is a ship manifest. Elpenor's selling weapons to both Athens and Sparta. He wants this war to go on forever. I have met some treacherous people. None of them compare to Elpenor. I'm going to look under every rock, in every shadow, until I find and kill this vile serpent.

Outcome

Kassandra met with Elpenor, who paid her for the job she'd done, but fled while ordering his guards to delay her. Afterwards, Kassandra found clues about Elpenor's dealings inside his house.
