Go To



* CassandraTruth: Pun aside, if the player finishes the Minotaur quest before taking on the Pre-Trials of the Minotaur quest-line, the Eagle Bearer spends the later trying to tell everyone they've already killed a minotaur, which for understandable reasons isn't believed (and not just because one of the people they're trying to tell this to [[spoiler:is aware the local minotaur legends are a scam to murder potential threats to the Cult]]).



* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: On occasion. For example, teaching a kid of a friend (and possible lover) of theirs how to fight saves him from bandits whom come a'calling while mom's out at the market... but it pisses mom off so badly she tells the Eagle Bearer to go away.



* TronLines: Some of their outfits gained during ''The Fate of Atlantis'' grant these all over their body, in gold.



-->'''[[spoiler:Pythagoras]]:''' "My oldest and most loyal friend. I sent him to watch over you. And here you are."

Added DiffLines:

* YouCantGoHomeAgain: If the player flubs up during the course of "Every Story Has An Ending", his jerkass brother tells him to get off Samos and never come back.

Added DiffLines:

* DarwinistDesire: [[spoiler:If they were played as gay, this is the reason why they end up conceiving a child with Darius' child: since they were both had strong Isu genetics the Misthios felt obligated to propagate their line]].


* HeroicLineage: They are directly descended from King Leonidas through their mother. [[spoiler:Their true father is Pythagoras, legendary geometer, philosopher, and occultist. Both are also Isu descendants. Through their son, they are also the ancestor of Aya]].

Added DiffLines:

* LampshadeHanging: When he tells the ''Adrestia'''s crew to stop singing, one of the possible reasons he gives is that he has heard this song too many times already. Given the limited number of songs, this is not unlikely to mirror the player's thoughts on the matter.


* BadassGay: Alexios and Kassandra can potentially romance same-sex characters if you so desire, and are both badass mercenaries. Given [[AncientGreece the setting]], it's hardly surprising.

* BigDamnHeroes: Attempted by him and Sokrates, who try to spring the [[spoiler:Eagle Bearer]] from jail armed only with a take and a stick. Only to find [[spoiler:The Eagle Bearer had already thrashed the guards with their bare fists and was one moment's respite away from helping themselves to the key]].

* OnlyInItForTheMoney: If that's how you want to play them. They're often asked about their motivation for doing what they're doing, and there's almost always the option to claim that they're only doing it for the drachmae. This bites them in the ass [[spoiler:against characters like Iola, where taking the mercenary dialogue leads her to be so appalled by their attempts to blackmail her that she decides to fight the misthios to death instead]].

Added DiffLines:

* ButNowIMustGo: [[spoiler:At the end of "Every Story Has An Ending", Herodotus tells the Eagle-Bearer that they won't accompany them on the Adrestia anymore, and he asks to be dropped off at Athens. He then says that he plans to go to Thurii (Magna Graecia, which is contemporary Southern Italy), a place he hasn't been to before]].[[note]]Thurii is one of the places that historians believe is where he died[[/note]].


Added DiffLines:

* ADayInTheLimelight: "Every Story Has An Ending" is an extended series of missions in the "Lost Tales of Greece" series that focuses on Herodotus' background, life, and so on.


Added DiffLines:

* TheOneWhoMadeItOut: "Every Story Has An Ending" reveals that he has this status in his hometown of Samos, being the local guy who made a name for himself in the wider Greek World, leaving his small town island behind.


* BlueBlood: From their mother's side, they are descended from King Leonidas of the Agiad dynasty of Sparta. It's very likely that had it not been for the cult and if they remained in Sparta then, Alexios at least, had a shot of becoming King.

Added DiffLines:

* AGodAmI: They can actually invoke this in a quest during ''Legacy of the First Blade'', though not for egotistical reasons - it's to get a DebtDetester off their back. The logic (such as it is) is thus: Only the gods can erase debt. The Eagle Bearer is a god, ergo they can erase the debt the man they keep rescuing has accumulated. Since only a god (or demi-god) could do the things they've done, he accepts this, and goes on his merry way.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:Most of the quests in Alethia's Tartaros simulation are caused by their killing Cerberos in self-defense.]]


Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: Their (pretty understandable) reaction to coming face-to-face (to-face-to-face) with Cerberos in ''Fate of Atlantis''. And that's before he starts breathing fire.


* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: [[spoiler: In the Fate of Atlantis DLC, they can quite literally do this to Hades, the Greek god of the Underworld, even if he is an Isu.]]
