Chapter 49

Postby Freakzilla » 09 Jul 2008 17:24

You cannot understand history unless you understand its flowings, its currents
and the ways leaders move within such forces. A leader tries to perpetuate the
conditions which demand his leadership. Thus, the leader requires the outsider.
I caution you to examine my career with care. I am both leader and outsider. Do
not make the mistake of assuming that I only created the Church which was the
State. That was my function as leader and I had many historical models to use as
pattern. For a clue to my role as outsider, look at the arts of my time. The
arts are barbaric. The favorite poetry? The Epic. The popular dramatic ideal?
Heroism. Dances? Wildly abandoned. From Moneo's viewpoint, he is correct in
describing this as dangerous. It stimulates the imagination. It makes people
feel the lack of that which I have taken from them. What did I take from them?
The right to participate in history.

-The Stolen Journals

Duncan and Siona are in their quarters in Tuono when Garun’s aide enters unannounced and informs them that Leto will be wed there. Siona tells Duncan about her raid on the Citadel and the Stolen Journals, he thinks she’s a lousy commander and should have poisoned the wolves beforehand. She tells him about how Leto tested her and that she believes in his Golden Path but not in what he has become. They both agree that he must be killed. Duncan tells her she should order Nayla to use her lasgun against his cart and if she refuses, kill her.

Somehow I always thought of this part as "yea, right... :roll: ".

Does anyone think Siona can kill Nayla in a fair 1vs1?

And sorry if I make this thread sound like DN with that question, it's just so rediculous of Duncan to tell her that.
In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

I wish I could have been with you that one last time.

Siona is Atriedes, I'm sure she's had the very best training available. But Siona doesn't seem like the type who would challenge Nayla to a fair fight over a weapon to kill Leto with, she'd just do it. Siona is as fanatical about destroying Leto as Nayla is about serving him.

Beyond that, even if Nayla wouldn't follow a direct order to kill Leto, she'd still follow any order that led to her own death.

Nayla would let Siona kill her without question.

Yea, Phaedrus, that was my thinking, she'd probably command her to jump on her knife or something.

Siona is evil. :(
