I, too, realized the cruel reality of my homeland. I experienced first hand how terrible and merciless Zaun could truly be. I had my research stolen, and the man I had entrusted as my Professor stole credit for the work I had put my entire mind and body into completing. When I had initially shut myself in my laboratory, isolated from the rest of the world, I did in fact experience immense feelings such as anger, sorrow, contempt, bloodlust, but ultimately I made a solemn resignation to myself. That I would cast away my flesh, become something beyond the frail, insufficient man that I once was.
I sacrificed my former biology for the sake of my work, and for those long, agonizing months the only thought that kept me going and drove me to endure the pain I caused myself was this: "Improve". I didn't give up, and I never abandoned Zaun to pursue my ideals. I did something about it, at great cost to my former self.
I learned that nothing can be accomplished without sacrifice. Whether it be losing the lives of others, or losing your very own limbs.
That's all fine and good, but don't stand on your pedestal of confused thinking and delusions of grandeur in my column. You have your own word-space to tell everyone how amazing you are in your own words. Go do it there, and stay out of my business.
I don't like you, or what you stand for. I don't think flesh is weak, nor are emotions. Emotions drive a person to action, and can be harnessed for good and noble intentions. I never turned my back on my homeland, simply the set of ideals that were hurting it, her people, and the people of Valoran to the core.
To disregard flesh and emotion is to disregard that which makes us human, and I refuse to believe that being a human being is a cause to be called weak. If you EVER doubt my strength or my resolve, Herald, I will fight you with all I have.
And when you lay broken and battered, picking your precious machines up off the ground, you can see what true strength is...
Now get out of my column...

It is demeaning to me as a soldier, and only caters to those who would wish to ogle my body in a perverted light... It is a horrible thing.
That being said, I have no problem with rabbits in and of themselves...

In order to clear up such false words we are supplying you with a replica attire and stating we had nothing to do with the disappearance of your original. While this may appear to be a confession of guilt to some, it is not. It is an act of good will. It should arrive at your quarters momentarily. Have a pleasant day Riven.
Thank you, Summoner. Though I had my suspicions that you were not at fault...
