If I may have your attention for a moment, I would like to make a tribute to a pilot that changed the lives and experiences of many in our fair star cluster. Please bear with me as I am not often moved to make statements publically, but I feel very strongly about this particular pilot's fate.

One year ago Valerius Morai, my mentor and sponsor to the capsuleer program, was taken from us all in a sudden and violent means. While it is rare for capsuleers to actually die, this man did indeed move on to the next verse. He is remembered for his tenacity and loyalty to the Amarr Empire and it's ideals, particularly the Reclaiming, and I don't mind adding that his example was inspiring to me, and others. If you sympathize with his ideals, feel free to take a moment to remember a comrade fallen. If you do not, and are a member of an organization opposed to what he stood for, I ask that you at least give acknowledgement to a pilot who would have cheerfully fought you with honour (albeit silently). He is missed by friends and family alike, and he will never be forgotten.

I have taken the liberty of erecting a memorial at the site of his murder in Sahtogas at the Saikamon gate, for those who care to pay their respects. I will always bear his legacy in my heart, and keep his trust, even in death.

Valerius, in whatever realm you find yourself in now, I wish you well and renew my goodwill.

Dear Tomi, My sentiments echo yours strongly. Valerius Morai was a very dear friend to me. He was an inspiration, and a mediator to my often times overbearing personality. He very literally saved my life on more than one occasion, and stood by me as a friend through my most difficult times. We had some very memorable times together.

<laughs> I remember how we would argue on the performace or even simply the Aesthetic virtues of various ships.

He was the most perfect example of a "true" Amarr, that I believe I have ever met. Unshakeable in his will, and his duty.

His death came as a shock and a blow to many. Thankfully however, his memory lives on through the memorials in both Sahtogas, and the one erected on my former estates on Sharhelund III.

Valerius, you are missed, and loved. You will never be forgotten.

Sincerely....

Sieesa Morgan.

He was a good fighter, and an even better friend, he is missed.

Valerius Morai... what can I say at this moment.
My first mentor, teacher and a friend above all.

I sadly remember of the day. I was with him when it happened. His last words, the comms cut suddenly. My ship uncloaking at that gate and my actions late, forever cursed.

Rest in peace Valerius. Destiny played with us in some twisted way.

But somewhere near, I still keep the memory of you. in a gentle roar of a gift bestowed from the heart once upon a time.

What can I say that will not be viewed as the arrogant words of a woman behind pulse lasers? Honor is something in short supply. All too often we live in a world where so many are willing to change their views, even their allegiances on a whim.

Valerius taught us something we must all continue to carry in our hearts: that honor and dedication are not things that can ever be ignored. And for that, we all owe him a great debt.

For him to prove his conviction in a way that none could deny, he was forced to fall on his sword, and I was the instrument of that pain. For the survivors of Valerius Morai, my heart goes with you.

His every breath was in his walk, a walk that never faltered. He will forever live in our hearts.

Though I honestly have few FOND memories of Valerius, he always seemed to be a thorn in my plans right from the start. He was the first pod pilot to actually kill me. He also had a knack for being in the right place at just the wrong time. A major source of annoyance to be sure.

However, Valerius was instrumental in bringing my wife and I to the point we are at today. Were it not for him, I expect things might have gone drastically different. He was a friend to her when she needed him the most, and I appreciate that.

Your memory will never fade, of that I can be certain.

This is a memorial. Even enemies have come here to express respect. But you, you have come here to add a negative bent to something important to a lot of people. People on many different sides.

Don't worry Tomi, this Gallente's words can not tarnish the reputation of Valerius. If anything it proves that he did his job better than any could have hoped.

Not to mention that Andreus is a year late. Pathetic.

Tarnish his reputation? He was an Amarrian Loyalist. There's not exactly any worse stain one can have on one's reputation. And if it makes other Loyalists angry - well. That's the point, isn't it? Angry Loyalists are much easier to deal with because they don't think before doing or saying things. That's preferably where I want every Loyalist - mad enough to trip over their own feet, preferably into a grave.

That truly is funny, considering only a small few on this thread could even potentially be called LOYALIST. Maybe you should do a bit more homework before opening your overused mouth.

Revan, you seem ready to wage war over perochialism, would you be willing to add idiocy to your list? I know a certain Gallentean who's simply dripping. His corpse would look rather festive as a centerpiece for your upcoming party.

Rather sincerely,

Isaaik Morgan.

Now, now Isaaik, this certainly is not the place, nor the time to feed into the derogatory. I understand the sentiment and I feel the same way.

Andreus, your words are rather lame in light of the circumstances. Valerius Morai was much more than a simple "loyalist", he was a giving, caring, kind man, who understood the meaning of the word "Honor".

When I first fell from grace, he was one of the very few who still treated me as a human being and not simply as "The enemy". You see him as a loyalist, while all the rest of us see him as a Man. A man worthy of the respect that you have disregarded. A man worthy of the respect which you have certainly lost with your words...

Goodbye Mr. Ixiris.

Sieesa Morgan.

I know little of this man, but he sounds like an enemy I could respect. I will acknowledge his passing.

Great Actions brings great memorials... Perhaps Explaining the whole circumstances of his death could enlighten some people to his cause.
