- On the body of Adamus Phillida's bodyguard after he commits suicide.
This was my big break! Finally I'm given something important to do, and what happens? I blow it! All I had to do was keep Phillida alive! That's it! But no! I couldn't even accomplish that! Father was right -- I'm an idiot, and I haven't amounted to anything!
I let everyone down, so this is it. Goodbye cruel Empire! I'm ending it all!
- The phrase "Goodbye cruel Empire!" is similar to the real-life phrase "Goodbye, cruel world", which is often associated with suicide.
