IIII. VOWS

19. The Vows of the Second Degree are as follows:
Quote:
I present myself freely and in good standing with the law and with society. I hear the call of investigation and seek to learn the arts of inquisition. I shall obey the instruction of my teachers. I shall obey the precepts of the Order.
My name is Initiate, and I wish to join the Order.


20. The Vows of the First Degree are as follows:

Quote:
My purpose is to seek out and reveal injustices, asking, listening, analyzing, representing the law faithfully and honestly.
I hear the call of investigation, and I answer.

I recognize that the laws of mankind are imperfect, that they may contradict, that good people do bad things and bad people do good things.
I follow my conscience and shall remain honest in my prosecution.

I refuse to participate in violence against anyone except only what is necessary for personal defense, to participate in unjust acts, to violate the precepts of the Order.
Promoting justice requires just action.

I remove myself from the household of my family, not to abandon my debts to society or to the people of my household, having put my affairs in order, but so that I may serve my purpose with greater impartiality.
My name is Inquisitor. My house is the Order.


At Fort Kezan,
Mira of Octavius-Aryani
Count Palatine of Kezan
