“Never before have so many come together from all quarters of the galaxy. But never before have we faced an enemy such as this. The Reapers will show us no mercy, we must give them no quarter. They will terrorize our populations. We must stand fast in the face of that terror. They will advance until our last city falls, but we will not fall. We will prevail. Each of us will be defined by our actions in the coming battle. Stand fast, stand strong. Stand together.”

→   You can pay a soldier to fire a gun. You can pay him to charge the enemy and take a hill. But you can’t pay him to believe. When you went up against Sovereign there was no good reason to believe you’d win. But your crew didn’t seem to care; they went along anyway. Your trip through the Omega Four relay? That was a suicide mission if there ever was one. Yet there your crew was, standing beside you, proud to serve. Why?

Because they believed in you. Their leader.
