@DeranVendar Arnock smiled as he watch Extrovious bark out orders to his new recruits. It brought back memories of a time where the fourth squad all fell under Extrovious, though back then the squad leader was seemingly a whole different person. Arnock listened to Extrovious then address him about the state of the recruits. The Master of Rites nodded his head and spoke, "Soldiers are a reflection of their leadership. I was blessed in this aspect in the past, so I try to pass it on. This is something I hope these new recruits you take experience as well. These are dark times, brother, and these recruits will need your leadership more than they will ever understand. We are right and just in this calling for for vengeance, and it will be up to you to lead them in that mindset." Arnock then placed his hand to his chest and spoke one last time, "I look forward to seeing you next time, brother." @Uriel1339 Arnock nodded a moment, before he spoke, "I have heard a great many things, Prodah. However, are we not all rewarded and punished for the deeds we commit? Elymas killed the treacherous leader, Apox and saved the standard bear of the loyalist forces. Is this not worthy of recognition? I was given this new armor inspite of my failure. So whom do you think is more worthy?" Arnock then stood up and sighed as he heard the question that had been asked to him many times before. He then spoke with a heavy heart, "You must understand that when the Edict was passed, there were no thoughts of traitors in our midst. So, taking this into account, the Emperor's judgement was clouded by the word of serpents. I do not in the least agree with the Edict. I have said this to Elymas, Extrovious, Sidon, and Minteril. My thoughts will not be swayed on this matter by the opinions of those whom do not understand anything but the words they hear. We are meant to use logic and understanding to move forward in life, so why would we not use it now?"
