Octavius Releases Emperor’s Commemoration Speech

UUNN Newswire

The Octavius Ministry of Culture has released a transcript of the Recitation of Heroes delivered by Emperor Septus I from his palace on Martius:

Morte et Inimi, Octavius!!!

Today and for the next two days we come together to honor our Fallen!

I welcome all of you this glorious holiday, when we honor those who have gone before … those who have earned our respect through their blood and their sweat.

So today, as you celebrate by recalling the names and deeds of The Fallen, you must embrace their examples and emulate their valor – for you are now our heroes.

Now let us remember … names from the past … their deeds … their battles …

I remember Fellblade! Leader of the Octavian Vanguard he was a fearsome warrior and leader. But he was also an accomplished bard who celebrated our culture and our ways with his stories.

I remember Algore! Brash, angry, confident, Algore embodies so much of what it means to be from Octavius! He picked up the mantel as leader of OV and he wore it well!

I remember Odiche! He authored THE guide to introduce new pilots to our way of life … and was always there to blame … for our shortcomings!

I Remember Liet! Some called him rogue, pirate and criminal … but I remember his passionate dedication to his favorite charity — the children of Octavius.

I remember Zaltys! Brilliant fighter and master tactician. He was ready and willing to share his knowledge with any warrior who was ready to learn.

So now I leave it now to all of Octavius to uphold our traditions . . . in our hearth-homes, in the barracks, in the streets and squares … to remember The Fallen. Shout their names loudly. Remember them silently. Honor them deeply.

Morte et Inimi, Octavius!!!
