In Assassin's Creed Odyssey there are many partners you can spend the night with, whether you're male or female. It really doesn't matter, but one might wonder how they conquer the Aphrodite's Embrace Achievement/Trophy quickly? The answer is fairly easy and it arrives early in the game.
With this Assassin's Creed Odyssey romance guide you'll see the easy example for a fast unlock and generally get an idea of how the love system works here. Now, you don't really get to see anything as it fades to black though some have funny animations involved. With that, this one is easy to start and is obtainable very early on. This is of course a romantic venture with "Odessa", as shown below.
This first portion takes place on the island of "Ithaka", it's literally the first little island beside the spawn area at the start of the game. You get there by boat and you'll have a main quest to do. You'll find Odessa available within "Odysseu's Palace" locked in a cage, save her. Obviously, it's easier to eliminate the targets first. They are region level in difficulty, should be easy.
She has a small mission to look around, indulge her. Make sure to select any and all heart/love icons that show up in the chat. I added "to follow her dreams" during an open segment that ended our first meeting. She sailed away and honestly I just randomly ran into her later, that can be found below. Prior to that information is a map showcasing where she can be initially found.
You'll come across Odessa next within "The Valley of King Lelex". This is the first area you bring your bigger boat to as you sail across the bay. Eliminate some enemies and eventually you'll move towards this vast city. This part requires more work to get her rolling around with you. She's by some pig pens and needs help as her father is sick. She asks you to collect resources to create medicine, once again make sure you're using the heart/love icons in the dialogue. The herbs are close, about a minute or two walk and easy to find on the map. The map below shows her location in this area by the way.
After that, there's an ambush and you'll need to eliminate enemies of the local difficulty which are not hard. Following that you'll need to head to the "Leader's House" to collect documents. Come back after and say she's "the victim", "make a story for yourselves" and "you hadn't thought of what's next".
You'll get the Achievement/Trophy prior to that last one and stay the night. Afterwards you can offer her to join your crew as that makes sense, keep the love interest close eh? She's a purple rank offering +6% arrow damage and +10% Fire Javelin Damage to your sailing crew. This is for the Aphrodite's Embrace 15 Gamerscore Achievement.
