It was … one of my most difficult battles. I have been trained; conditioned all of my many centuries of life to fight any battle presented to me with all of my might, all of my strength, for the sake of those under my charge! It is my purpose — it is what I have been placed in this universe to carry out unflinchingly!
And yet nothing could have prepared me for it, no wise counsel from my father or encouraging words from my comrades could have properly braced me for facing my brother on the battlefield.
My sentiment could have killed me against him, but I dare not abandon it. My brother must always know what he can return to — I dare not forsake bonds of brotherhood! For then, I become little more than an automaton with a hammer, and that is not what must protect Midgard and its people!
