"Brethren, today I speak to you not as your leader but as your equal. For too long we have fought our neighbors, and for too long we have allowed ill considered disputes to end in senseless bloodshed. From this day forth, The Duchy of Terenia stands to usher in a new age of hope and stability. Under the banner of the Demalion Empire, I give you peace, and I give you this moment to live freely and with pride. So lay down your weapons, for the hungry have starved enough. My people have bled enough."
Duke Demiqas Liacan, "The Wolf of Terenia"
(after the Demalion Conquest)
