Your calm demeanor in the face of overwhelming evil was a comforting presence for us all. When I assumed the role of Steward of House Vaalor, I requested you read King Tyrnian his last rites before your fellow Legion members. You did not hesitate. With no time to prepare, you performed admirably and your words brought a sense of peace and closure to myself, if not us all. Though I am not as often out among the people as I would like, I do hear things. I hear citizens and legionnaires alike refer to you with such terms as "The Angel of Ta'Vaalor" and "The Spiritual Leader of Ta'Vaalor." These are words of high praise that I cannot disagree with.
