Death wears many masks but a warrior
sees through the mask, to his own face below.
At the moment of ultimate confrontation,
a Shardasko warrior acknowledges death with the words,
I will hold nothing back. I will not lose unless I lose completely.
Once a warrior speaks these words,
his existence will never be the same.
from, The Key by Master Kyron, Shardasko Warrior
