"Three loyal armies of this realm stand ready to defend you, sire. All of us will unflinchingly place ourselves between you and the war's desolation. The traitors will find no surrender and no cowardice here for we will fight to the last man, their campaign of terror will never end as long as those who remain loyal to you still draw breath. In these 9 long years of conflict meeting the traitors on the battlefield all over the realm and duelling traitor lords who have declared for the rebellion I have not known fear, but your silence terrifies me..."
- Lucius Fulgrim, Lord of Chemos, Home of the Phoenix Lords speaking to the King prior to the Battle of Cthonia.
