493a - One Page of the Mess
The mess… her father came down and gazed at the fog of drifting dust and ash. “How… unexpected.”
“Yes. But I do not read the most Ancient of Arkan.”
Minis squinched his eyes shut, let them fall on another bit of text when they opened, instead of trying to force them. Wirrloiel. "We are loyal." Wirronrab? "We are honourable." Wiif korech. "
"We are committed to duty. Or our duty."
"We are respectful."
The (Mahid) have earned the right to that name. The name (Mahid) will be held as representative of the qualities..."
“In combat, in defense, in their lives, the…” (these marks mean Mahid, even if they don’t seem to. I’ll just continue writing them down as such…) “…shall strive to uphold those qualities, and teach their children in those exemplary virtues. The vision of the dedicates – (this means something like dekinas, something sacred… or a higher sacred than mere priests…) of…” (a name… a Mahid name I think) “…shall strive to to uphold the tradition of excellence in its investigative and protective mission through a dedicated, highly-trained, diverse, family-oriented workforce that promotes holy professionalism.”
The mission of the (Mahid) is to guard the infrastructure and lawful systems of Ark Co., (this is an old old spelling of the name of the Empire) to preserve the integrity of the Company (Arko), and to protect the CEO (I cannot make this word mean anything... pronounced keeio perhaps? But it is always written in the odd way...), visiting CEOs (perhaps it is their sign for Imperator? No -- visiting keeios... must be a title of some kind of official --) and government officials, and designated places holy to the followers of the company of saved souls.
"Then there are bits missing in the middle and what appears to be instruction to the Mahid."
"The (Mahid)’s ranks close against the dark, and with calm, firm steps face the holocaust that burned the sin out of the world. Those fallen, in Heaven (Selestialis) send their spirits to march within the ranks of their still struggling brothers."
"Be a defense of hope and safety for Ark Co. (Arko) when they see the (Mahid) troops rallying to save them, to stand between them and the fallen (forzak) hordes who brought the Wrath of God (Gods/Muunas) down upon us all. (Mahid) stand prepared for the Fire, stand prepared to be the first and last bulwark against sin and defilement."
"Then another hole... and a piece of text from Muunas's Book."
He paused, looking at the last readable piece of text. "This isn't in the scriptures. "We take responsibility for the hard choices and our power requires that we be reliable and conscientious for those who we are answerable to.”
