Subj: On the consequences you have dealt

Silas,

Your words leave much to be questioned. How can you say you are not one to threaten, but give me the option of an apology or death? My apology was neither empty nor insincere; it was just not what you and They wanted to hear. I did tell Anedhel this when he gave me the ultimatum you have also posed me with. As far as your belief that my options are to face the truth of my situation or face death at the hands of Their chosen, you have that wrong, as well. I have accepted the truth of my situation, which is why I have accepted the death at the hands of Their chosen.

When Santar entered Delos and slayed me, did I try to stop him? No. When he then hunted me down in a Cyrenian's grove and attacked me then killed that Cyrenian, did I fight back? No. I have stayed true to my word. If you feel the conviction to slay me, I will accept your misguided beliefs. Pride is the feeling of satisfaction one gets from their beliefs. I do not exhibit pride in these encounters or posts, Silas. To believe I do is only based on the fact that I have a conviction to my ideals which differs from your conviction to your own. This is not pride, but a steadfast nature.

I have made my thoughts on the matter clear to you, and another public threat in an effort to discourage the rest of Sapience from accepting reason and standing against your own ideals will not be necessary or responded to by me. If you do not like this, do not feel the unnecessary need to slay others around me, but take your disgraceful anger out on me alone. I only hope that those who read these words are not ignorant enough to accept your words as truth, for not committing yourself as a servant of Good, Light, and Righteousness is by no means an act against Creation.

In conclusion,

Jaran
