56. A fist-full of loyalty

56. A fist-full of loyalty

I’ve heard it said, most unkindly, that soldiers are not unlike dogs, in that our devotion and loyalty is often devoted chiefly to whomever puts food in our bowls.  Despite this misrepresentation, soldiers do tend to take matters of honour and loyalty very seriously indeed, often considering them to be far more important than any materialistic gain… or even a full stomach.

This Lyris, whilst perhaps not the brightest spark on the bonfire, has the kind of noble bearing that inspires sacrifice and loyalty from those around her.  And to a soldier, a fist-full of loyalty has more worth than a cart full of cleverness.
