"Stories Of The Past" is the 17th story mission in Infamous 2.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Nix: "Too bad, nice day for a skinny dip."
Cole: "Oooh. Go right ahead. I‘m not stopping you."
―Cole meets Nix by the bayou.[1]

Cole meets Nix.

Cole receives a call from Nix who asks if he wants to "play a little show and tell." Meeting her on one of the piers, Cole watches her dangle her feet above the water before warning her of the dangers in the water. After joking about her skinny dipping, Cole asks Nix why she called him. Raising a finger and pointing towards the bayou, Nix says she grew up out there and explains the only people she knew were "thieves and crazies." When Cole asks what happened, Nix replies that she will show him, but first they need to acquire a boat.

The boat trip[edit | edit source]

Heading to the nearby mansion, the duo then fight through numerous Militia troops as they make there way to the pier and the boat moored there. Once aboard, Nix states that she'll drive and tells Cole to enjoy the view.

Travelling through the swamp

As they make their way towards their destination, Nix notices several Militia watchtowers, which she states are new. Telling her to take it slow, Cole questions what the Militia want as he destroys the towers. Jumping down to one of the bayou's islands, Cole clears out the Militia before returning to the boat.

The two then continue through the swamp and spot another Militia camp, but upon searching it, Cole finds that the Militia members have already been killed. After Cole returns to the boat, Nix states that she saw something moving on the far-shore. Racing across, Cole faces the Hive Lord responsible for killing the Militia troops.

New Marais Blast site[edit | edit source]

The blast site.

With the last of their opposition dealt with, Nix and Cole finally reach their destination. Leading him through the overgrowth, Nix shows Cole alittle slice of Empire City. Nix explains how Bertand had gathered a cache of outcasts (including Nix's family) and activated a Ray Sphere. Hidden in a bush at the edge of the clearing, Nix had watched as everyone she knew died as a result of the blast, leaving only Bertrand and herself alive. As the duo make their way back through the bayou, Cole ponders how powerful Bertrand could be, considering Nix is a force to be reckoned with.
