Ottawa is a city in 80 Days. It is the capital of the Dominion of Canada and is situated in Eastern Canada. It is a well-developed place for being so far north, with electric lights, fancy hotels, and a welcoming atmosphere.
During a tour of the riverfront, Passepartout may feel a prod at his back while a voice commands him to put his hands up. The robber holding the gun is a young man of only sixteen or seventeen years who demands Passepartout hand over his money. If he hands over ten pounds the boy will leave without confrontation. Alternatively Passepartout can attempt to wrestle the gun from his grip or simply refuse to pay his demands.
Trying to take the gun will result in Passepartout overpowering the boy and sending the gun skittering across the street. After trying to reprimand the teenager he will begin to cry, and Passepartout can choose whether to hand him over to the police, scold him, or sympathetically give him some money. The same will happen if he simply declines to hand over a single pound to the poor boy. If he is not delivered into police custody he will run off, leaving Passepartout to hope that he somehow helped turn the boy away from a life of crime.
