The Vandeae Templars have always been caretakers. We care for the flowers as we care for our fellows: with patience, love and care.
We cannot bring good into the world with violence and pain, though often evil must be thus removed.
We approach our fellows as we approach the garden: not with arrogance and anger, but with love and patience. We cannot smother the flower of virtue, nor browbeat it into growing. We must give it what it needs to grow, and stand aside.
We must toil and sacrifice, always with joy, never with resentment, even through the dry years that bear no fruit. All the world is our garden, and we must cultivate where we can, be it in the stony streets of Omphalos, or in the far fields where few see our work and none sing our praises.
But we are warriors too, and so, regrettably, must reap. Left untended, the weeds will choke the garden we have worked so long to cultivate. This we cannot allow.
And so we will shed a tear for the fields that cannot bear fruit, and we shall light the fires, so that others may see the light.
