So sayeth we, the Brethren of the Order of Ethyrea, this solemn vow that is the responsibility of any who would wield LifeBreath, that in doing so, it will only be in the force of all that is good and pure, and against anything that is not of the Brethren Maxims which are: Loyalty, Truth, Honor, Sacrifice, Justice, Wisdom and Love.

We who honor those of Ethyrea with our gifts shall do so to protect the Harmony of Nature that is the balance of our world.

We who honor those of Ethyrea with our gifts shall do so to maintain Justice in the face of any malefaction that may threaten any of the known worlds.

We who honor those of Ethyrea with our gifts shall do so with impunity so long as we maintain indifference to how the malpractice of LifeBreath could be of benefit to ourselves.

We who honor those of Ethyrea with our gifts shall do so always, without regard to personal danger or potential personal loss to our own kind, so long as our actions are for the good of all the realms.

We who honor those of Ethyrea with our gifts shall do so with hearts of honesty and forthright of consciousness so long as the truth is to the benefit of all the realms.

We who honor those of Ethyrea with our gifts do so pledge our lives, our LifeBreath, and our steel to the defense of all who are helpless, innocent, pure, kind, true of nature, admirable, loving, or are a blessing to those around them.

We who honor those of Ethyrea with our gifts shall be held accountable for our actions and shall exert equal and deserving treatment on all of the citizens of the known realms and beyond.

 We who honor those of Ethyrea with our gifts pledge our absolute fealty to our Order, our Emperor, our Brethren, and our Kingdoms.

We who honor those of Ethyrea with our gifts pledge ourselves whole-heartedly, of our own free will to the Maxims of the Brethren Order. We shall never waiver in our resolve, as we will never waiver in our Faith in each other, nor the people of all the realms, whom which, it is our Honor to serve.

We sayeth these things in the Spirit of the Order now, and forevermore. We will never falter, nor deviate from the path before us. We accept that from the balance is the sanctity of the lives we are sworn to protect. We will uphold this balance to protect all of the generations to come, and to honor all of those that have passed.

We acknowledge our understanding and pledge to abide by those Codes, both ordained and forbidden, and shall willingly lay down our lives, if ever necessary, for the good of all. Such is our Duty, our Obligation, and our Honor as a wielder of LifeBreath; Member, of the mighty Brethren of the Order of Ethyrea. So let it be known, from here on forth where our allegiances openly remain.​
