XV: Born As Prey
Verse 2:5 — Born As Prey
This is unacceptable.
Are you so weak? Born as prey, and doomed to die by predator?
Auryx’s failure of resolve led us to catastrophe. The Ammonite fleets under Chroma-Admiral Rafriit have pressed us back to the sixth moon. Once more we find ourselves burrowing into a world’s core to survive.
Savathûn. You must draw Auryx out of his catatonia. Make him understand that the ideals of peace and stability he clings to are cancers — brutal, unjust obstacles between us and a fair cosmos. These are the bait stars the Sky uses to blind its slaves.
War is the natural rectification of inequality. The universe’s way of pursuing equilibrium.
Xivu Arath, you cannot defeat the Ammonites and Taox in line combat. We propose new tactics. Breed your armies back to strength, and find a way to disperse the broods across these many moons.
If we cannot defeat their strengths, we will infect their weaknesses.
