A knight and a demon engage in combat in the mist of some ancient ruins. A bloody roar could be heard from several towns away. The horse and knight hold steadfast focusing on the obstacles in front of them. A vile beast bent on destruction, wielding a sword which could easily lay waste a village in a single swing.
“The real hero is the man who fights
even though he is scared. Some men
get over their fright in a minute under
fire. For some, it takes an hour. For
some, it takes days. But a real man will
never let his fear of death overpower
his honor, his sense of duty to his
country, and his innate manhood.
Battle is the most magnificent
competition in which a human being
can indulge. It brings out all that is
best and it removes all that is base.”
-General George S. Patton, Jr.
