Information Edit

Field Biologist

Dr. Ada Huxley has spent most of her career studying at the frontiers of biology in the quiet of her California lab. She requested assignment to the Expeditionary force after seeing the first samples of Kora Fruit brought back to Earth, and has been studying the life-sustaining fruit fervently ever since her arrival.

Initial Contact Edit

Oh. Oh, my. You, you're (Hero)! You're really (Hero), aren't you! I mean, I asked for some assistance, but I never thought they'd send someone as famous as, well, as you. I, um, well, um. It's my absolute pleasure to work with you. I don't know if I'll have any missions to save the world or anything, but, well, I'll do everything to help. Er, help me. I mean, to help you to help me. I mean, oh, you know.

Missions Edit

Speak with Sara Moore Edit

Briefing

Well, um, hmmm. There's so much to do, let me think. Ah, I know! Kora Fruit! That's what I'm researching, and I think you might find them pretty helpful, too. Kora fruit are one of the most exciting things we've discovered, at least from a biomedical and pharmaceutical perspective. The difficulty lies in getting samples, since they're often guarded by the Rularuu. So, how about while I figure out what I'm going to need your help with, you speak with Miss Moore over there? She's sort of a leader among the natives, and she's been a big help with all kinds of things out here. She's actually the one who first brought Kora Fruit to our attention.

Personally, I think she also has a bit of a crush on Lt. Col. Flynn.

Mission Acceptance

Miss Moore's right over there. She should be able to explain a good deal about the Kora Fruit.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Speak with Sara Moore

Briefing Sara Moore

In the name of all of the People of Paragon, I greet you, great (Hero). I have heard of your might and power from others of the people, and from the expedition. It is an honor to meet you.

I was the first to tell the expedition of the Kora Fruit. I brought some to explorers who were in danger from the Rularuu, and with them saved lives. Ever since I saved Lieutenant Colonel Flynn and his men that day, I have worked to help the expedition and my own people.

By our tales, our people have used the Kora Fruit since before the madness broke the world. Kora Fruit come from Kora Vines, which feed on the red water of the Cascades in deep caves. Each kind of Kora Fruit gives a great boon to those who taste of it; healing, restoring energy, or even making one fight better. Our people have survived much thanks to the Kora. However, the Kora also draw the Rularuu in great numbers. It is not known why, for they do not eat of it, but merely guard it.

Debriefing

As Ms Moore no doubt explained, one of the big difficulties with researching Kora Fruit is that the Rularuu are also attracted to it. This makes it hard to get samples. It's one of the more dangerous things that the natives do to survive. Well, on that note, how about I ask you to help get a small sample of Kora Fruit for me? Miss Moore's people recently found a small cave with some Kora fruit that only recently's been overtaken by the Rularuu, so it shouldn't be that difficult to reach them.

Now remember, when you pick a Kora fruit ti will give you an inspiration, so keep some space open to receive it.

Mission Objective(s)

The cave is both warm and slightly damp inside.

  • Get Kora Fruit
    • 4 Kora vine

You harvested the Kora Fruit for Dr. Huxley.

Debriefing

Thank you! These are perfect specimens. Now, whenever you pick a Kora fruit, you'll get one to use yourself. They act just like the most powerful kinds of inspirations, so remember to keep enough free space for it, or it will be wasted.

Contact me any time you want to gather more Kora fruit. I'll always need more for study, and would be happy for the help.


Gather Blue Kora Fruit and defeat the guardians in a small cave Edit

You'll still get some for yourself, of course, but you'll have to fight for them.

Thank you for all of your help. This will help my research a great deal. You will need to gather all of the Kora fruit and defeat the Kora vine's guardians in the depths of the cave to finish the expedition.

Trivia Edit

Dr Ada Huxley is a reference to the author Aldous Huxley, who wrote The Doors of Perception about his experiences when taking the psychedelic drug mescaline. Kora is a reference to Soma, the recreational drug from his fictional masterpiece, Brave New World.

Dr. Huxley states, "Kora fruit [..] They act just like the most powerful kinds of inspirations".

Soma is also a leafless East Indian vine; its sour milky juice used to make an intoxicating and sacred drink which is used in rituals. This might explain the reason why the Rularuu value Kora fruit as they do, yet do not eat it.
