"I believe that it is time that we consider this war, which has previously been merely a series of small skirmishes - little more, to of the greatest import. We have lost men for small causes. We have gained some territory in the desert, but what use is that? And now…now we have all of the odds stacked against us. This isn't because they fell naturally that way, it's because we've neglected to keep our eyes open and our reach long. If we continue as we have, I foresee death and destruction of our race. We must become greater. We have been playing as children in a sandbox. Now, we need to put off our childish playing, put off the sand-box rules, and become men, and fight, and strategize, and die as men do. That is the only way that we can achieve victory." Elder Rastus to the General Assembly of Elders and Judges of Khenochia, date uncertain.

***

"General Haig Corbin, after receiving the message that Sons of Khenochia were fleeing, was able to send a force of his men to head off the retreat of the second party. They were successful in halting and putting down that party. However, unlike the party halted by Captain Iohann, none of the second party was spared. In his own reports, General Corbin was forced, by the ferocity of the rebels, to "neutralize the threat without regard to the possibility of their surrender. The personal account of Jacob Iohann, who served as a sub-captain under General Corbin, verifies this.
