Words[edit | edit source]

I come naked before you, unbound by the ties of blood or honor, Unbound by doubts or hesitation, I stand unadorned before you. I humbly ask that House Liam clothe me, in the manner of the house; In the manner that is fitting. I pray that you grant me this boon I swear I will accept the burdens of House Liam, as they are no burdens; It is no hardship to protect. I swear that I will take them up with joy. As a life without meaning: For my life is united with the house.
