On The Frontier
Wishing to settle some of the nervousness about Aegis in the town, Quintilla wrote this song and performed it on a busy night in Nigel’s Tavern. In it, she revealed some of Aegis’ history, in the hope of showing the populace that he is a protector and can be trusted.
“So long ago and very near,
We waited to be born.
Our King and Queen awoke us to
A bright and glorious morn.
We lived to serve and served to live,
We stood protective, strong;
We brothers of the metal flesh,
Steadfast for ever long.”
Q and Corbie’s song modulates to something stronger and more purposeful.
“Entrusted with the greatest charge
But overwhelmed somehow,
I still will stand against the foul,
Protective even now.
The cent’ries pass and still I watch,
Until now all alone.
Alight, my eyes and burn, my soul,
There’s work now to be done.
The desecration suffered by
My bretheren I vow
Will not befall these people here
I must protect them now.”
