Also note that while you speak of the glories of Aberion and the Flame Dawn, of all of your great martial successes, that the Dawn has consistently failed to succeed on its own. Every victory proclaimed from Pyr was achieved through the effort and dedication of others.
Oh, so you conquered some 80% of Talich? Yeah, using weapons built by Genesis Industries.
You beat the Sleepers? Don't lie to yourselves. The Sleepers of Avarrach were on the verge of overrunning the combined forces of the Flame Dawn, the Warpath, and Genesis Industries when the Overseers showed up and dropped the nuclear option. The Flame Dawn was crumbling and already betraying its allies in an attempt to save its own skin.
Oh, and the new war with Genesis? Once again it is the Overseers who have been successful, not the Dawn. Who killed Orion? Was it Aberion, Saccullas, Kali, Klore? No? It was Sol.
The "glorious empire" of the Flame Dawn is all a facade, an illusion created by bullies who can never do anything for themselves. Now the fools are merely cronies of the Overseers, and their proud Aberion is nothing more than Sol's glorified henchman.
