Go To

"To the righteous we bring hope. To the tainted we bring fire."
Castellan Garran Crowe of the Grey Knights

My good blade carves the casques of men,
My tough lance thrusteth sure,
My strength is as the strength of ten,
Because my heart is pure.
Lord Alfred Tennyson, "Sir Galahad"

Blade with whom I have lived, blade with whom now I die.
Serve right and justice one last time.
Seek one last heart of evil, still one last life of pain.
Cut well old friend, and then farewell.

Put your faith in the Light!

My power is faint and low
till I have learned to serve;
it lacks the needed fire to glow,
it lacks the breeze to nerve.
It cannot drive the world
until itself be driven;
its flag can only be unfurled
when thou shalt breathe from heaven.
— Christian hymn "Make Me A Captive, Lord", by George Matheson

Lien: How are you doing? Are you handling the cold OK?
O-Chul: I am well. You?
Lien: Sure, no problem. I've grown accustomed to the frigid depths of the ocean floor as I seek out the forces of Evil in the dark crevices in which they hide.
O-Chul: I warm myself with my thoughts- both of the gentle warmth of the good deeds done and delinquent hearts redeemed, as well as those of the eternal fires of the Lower Planes- where those unwilling to consider their life choices must surely find themselves should they stand against me.
Lien: I don't know what I was thinking, trying to beat you in a Paladin-Off.
O-Chul: Through grim virtuous perseverance and the will of the Twelve Gods, I was able to triumph.

Warrior of Light: Firion! You've fought well. Leave the rest to me.
Firion: I cannot!
Warrior of Light: You must go and look after our comrades to keep their paths to crystals open.
(Firion takes his leave)
Sephiroth: A fresh one. You won't get your crystal fighting against me.
Warrior of Light: I thought not.
Sephiroth: Then why do you stand in my way?
Warrior of Light: You have injured one of my comrades.
Sephiroth: And you want, I take it, to avenge them? So, on a whim, you would risk your life—
Warrior of Light: Let us begin, and see this put to rest.
Final Fantasy Dissidia The Warrior of Light talking to Sephiroth.

The Third Ideal of the Skybreakers: I will hold the law above all else.
The Third Ideal of the Edgedancers: I will listen to those who have been ignored.
The Second Ideal of the Bondsmiths: I will unite instead of divide. I will bring men together.
...That which is sacrosanct I shall preserve.
That which is sublime I will protect.
That which threatens, I will destroy,
For my holy wrath will know no bounds...
Grail Vow of Bretonnia, Warhammer Fantasy
