DescriptionEdit

The Frye twins visited Charles Darwin in the Strand.

DialogueEdit

The Frye twins approached Darwin.

  • Darwin: I didn't know you had a twin sister, Mr. Frye.
  • Evie: Evie Frye, sir. It's a pleasure.
  • Darwin: Usually, I would reciprocate the sentiment, Miss Frye, but today I am afraid nothing will bring me pleasure.
  • Evie: What's troubling you, sir?
  • Darwin: I am used to people challenging my ideas, in fact, I live for it... The cut and thrust of spirited debate! Lately, however, attacks against my reputation have taken a darker turn. Threats of violence against my person and against my colleagues. I do not wish anyone to be hurt because of my research...
  • Jacob: You helped me with Starrick's Syrup. I am in your debt.
  • Darwin: We help each other, sir.
  • Evie: My brother and I will make sure that you can continue your work in peace.

Darwin then gave them their first task.

Evie and Jacob talking with Darwin

  • Darwin: What do you know of bones?
  • Jacob: I know how much pressure it takes to shatter, snap, or splinter one.
  • Darwin: Mmm... Perhaps it would be simpler if I just explained the situation... A few days ago, a German colleague, Dr. Schwartz, sent me a telegram. He informed me he was on his way to London to deliver a very important fossil, you see. In fact, he should arrive at Charing Cross any moment now. Would you ensure no harm comes to him?
  • Jacob: I'll bring Dr. Schwartz and that fossil to you, Mr. Darwin.
  • Darwin: Splendid! But please do be careful...

Evie's reaction would be slightly different.

  • Darwin: What do you know of bones?
  • Evie: Only a few of their names, learned from books.
  • Darwin: Mmm... Perhaps it would be simpler if I just explained the situation... A few days ago, a German colleague, Dr. Schwartz, sent me a telegram. He informed me he was on his way to London to deliver a very important fossil, you see. In fact, he should arrive at Charing Cross any moment now. Would you ensure no harm comes to him?
  • Evie: I'll ensure Dr. Schwartz's safety and makes sure you get that fossil.
  • Darwin: Splendid! But please do be careful...

Jacob or Evie made their way to the station and kidnapped Dr. Schwartz.

  • Schwartz: What is the meaning of this?
  • Jacob: I'm collecting you and your precious cargo for our friend, Mr. Darwin. Just act naturally.
  • Evie: Mr. Darwin has sent me to ensure you reach him safely, with your cargo intact. Just act naturally.

Schwartz complied.

  • Schwartz: Right... So how is your father? By which I mean my dear brother Franck, with whom I grew up, of course. Oh, splendid! Wonderful to hear. I'll do my best not to call attention to how remiss he was in forgetting to warn me about the delicate situation which brings me here today.
  • Blighter 1: Wouldn't hurt to know what the bugger looks like.
  • Blighter 2: How am I going to find him among all these people?
  • Blighter 3: Like finding a needle in a haystack, this is.
  • Blighter 4: What's a German doctor supposed to look like anyway?

Jacob or Evie delivered Schwartz to the exit, but the doctor wrestled free and ran.

  • Jacob/Evie: Doctor Schwartz?
  • Schwartz: ... never got on the train. Darwin's fate is sealed! Goodbye, Assassin. I did so enjoy meeting you.

Jacob or Evie chased after the imposter.

  • Imposter: Darwin must be silenced!
    Darwin's theories will destroy the very fabric of our society!
    Do you not see how dangerous Darwin's theories are?!
    We cannot allow Darwin to destroy what we have built!
  • Jacob: Where do you think you're going?!
    Stop, and I might let you live.
    I'll run you off the road!
    Your choice, imposter: we do this the hard way, or we do it the very hard way!
  • Evie: Stop and hand over the specimen. Now!
    Don't force me to kill you!
    Don't make me do anything you'll regret!
    You can't escape! You must realize that!

Jacob or Evie killed the imposter and searched his body for the fossil.

  • Jacob: Now to take this fossil to Darwin.
  • Evie: I should deliver this to Mr. Darwin.

Jacob or Evie made their way to Darwin.

  • Darwin: At last! My heart hasn't stopped pounding. You have it? Wonderful? But... where is Dr. Schwartz?
  • Jacob: Most likely dead, I'm afraid. He never left Germany. At least I managed to get the fossil back.
  • Evie: I'm afraid he was intercepted, sir, in Germany. However, I have recovered the fossil.
  • Darwin: Dear Lord... I should tell you I was recently approached by men who sought to purchase all my research, on the condition I work only for them. Obviously, I refused. Scientific knowledge cannot be bought, it belongs to everyone. Let these villains do their worst!

OutcomeEdit

Jacob or Evie escorted Schwartz as requested, only to find out that he was an imposter. They subsequently assassinated him and brought the fossil to Darwin.
