The 3rd Squad’s flower is the Marigold. The meaning behind the flower is “Despair”, and it is our creed. Battle is not a stage for empty heroics and nor is it something to take pleasure in. Battle is filled with despair. Dark, terrifying. That is the way that it should be. That way, people learn to fear battle and to choose the path of non-violence where possible.

 Kira Izuru, 3rd Squad Lieutenant
