I will not be left behind!
I am the sister-daughter of warriors, not some milk-sop who blanches at the sight of blood. I cannot languish in safety when I too can wield a keen blade.
I will not be enslaved to womanhood.
There are battles to fight, foes to slay, and if that means Death takes me – so be it. I will willingly meet sharp steel, but I shall not die easy! This cold blade will carve their lives away. I shall have my name remembered!
Beware the red dawn, mine enemies; I come with wrath to make you bleed!
