[preparing to lead a sortie from the fort]
[whispering] Mithras, lord of light, father of our fathers, let me not bring misfortune to my legion. Mithras, lord of light, father of our fathers, accept whatever sacrifice that I may not bring misfortune to my legion.
[shouts] On my command, we form testudo! Ready... open the gates!
My shame would not allow me to tell you this before... but I watched your father die. Whatever anyone tells you, he was *not* a coward. He stood his ground to the very end. I saw it. The last Roman to hold the eagle was your father. The order, sir.

No. When I ran from your father... I ran from myself. Give the order, sir.
Prepare to defend the eagle!
