The Sacrifice of Hans Jurgen Kürsch
“Had it not been for fathers sacrifice that day, there would be a pretty high chance that we would all be eternally suffering at the hands of Kerr by now. He gave his life for you and me and all of mankind. Its not surprising that he is revered as one of Gods legendary warriors. It is now up to us to continue his legacy and fulfill his dream. A world of peace and happiness without the corruption of the breaker Spoken by Lorann sanguinus meros to his brother Alexander about the sacrifice of their father.Hans Jurgen Kürsch was one of the greatest commanders of The Imperial Terran Federation and quite possibly, one of mankinds most legendary and mythical warriors of mankind. His actions during the fall of Cadmeia only served to enlarge his legend. At the time of his death, he was one of the oldest warriors in the federation at over 800 years.
In the year of 2975, humanity experienced one of its darkest hours. For the past few years, The great rift had been expanding and demonic activity around The Gehennian gate. was increasing exponentially. Anticipating a gigantic demonic crusade, the The Imperial Terran Federation sent massive amounts of reinforcements to that region in order to prepare for any impending attacks. What came out of that though, brought about one of mankind's darkest times.
Mankind's darkest hour
"We thought that our defenses were impenetrable. That all those bristling gun turrets and tanks and artillery would scare those godless fuckers back to the unholy shithole they came from. It was the exact opposite. What i witnessed in those times were all my nightmares come true. I saw my friends being butchered, mutilated and desecrated by endless hordes of monsters born from my worst nightmares. I still don't know how i survived the ordeal. We were constantly mauled by endless amounts of demons and when the void titans themselves arrived, our defenses crumbled like paper walls hit by anti tank shells. I will never forget the cries of my family and my friends as they were butchered like cattle by those merciless beings" Private Erik Larsson, one of the few surviving Cadmeians who escaped the fall of Cadmeia and the Gehennian gate, during an interview.A few solar months later, the first waves of the largest demonic invasion to have ever been witnessed by humanity reached the outskirts of the Gehenna system. Though they were repelled easily, they provided vital information to the main force of the invasion to plan their attacks accordingly. At first the defenders were relieved. Considering that they hadn't gotten any sign of further incursions, they felt that they had borne the brunt of the attack. This is exactly what the demonic forces wanted them to believe. For the main carnage was just about to begin. Then came the main force of the demons. It was the largest gathering of demonic forces ever seen since the great reawakening of Kerr almost ten billion years ago. Despite the valiant sacrifice of the Cadmeians, their forces were completely overcome by the demonic legions for the first time in history. The planet itself was corrupted by the sheer amount of demonic energy acting on it. Cadmeia had fallen.
The ultimate sacrifice
" I am sorry but I must have to go. For centuries, i have striven for the great dream of all mankind, an end to this conflict. Today I will have to give my life to see it through. Please take care of Alexander for me. He is going to have a hard time without ever seeing his family. I dream my dreams but this.. this is just a nightmare. Goodbye my little one. Trust in the lord and keep on struggling. Spoken by Hans Jurgen Kürsch to his son, Lorann sanguinus meros to take care of his brother Alexander before he goes to engage the demonic forces in orbit around CadmeiaHans knew the sheer gravity of the situation at hand. He had seen the demons razing his homeworld and realized that the time had come. The time to sacrifice himself and everything he had for the greater good of mankind. While the evacuation of the remaining soldiers were underway, he visited his son Lorann sanguinus meros and bid him goodbye before going into orbit. Once in orbit, he called upon the powers he was bestowed with centuries ago and transformed into the form of Sammael before engaging the demonic forces there. At first, the demons could do little to even scratch Hans as they were slaughtered by the billions by the enraged angelic being . Lucius saw this as a chance and decided to come into the fray and to defeat and humiliate one of the greatest warriors of mankind. To show how pathetic they were. But he underestimated Hans' determination And so, Lucius bellowed a challenge to Hans and he promptly accepted. The two then battled to the death, with Lucius being hellbent on humiliating Hans before murdering him. But he was undeterred and soon began to gain the upper hand. Desperate to win the fight, Lucius called upon the four Higher Void titans and prayed to them to lend their energies to him. They agreed and soon, Lucius transformed into a demonic being far far powerful than anything the universe had witnessed in billions of years. Hans fought on bravely. But even such a powerful being such as Sammael could not keep up with the raw power of four of the strongest demonic beings to have ever existed. Realizing that he was doomed to die, Hans summoned all his energy and made one last attack at Lucius. The attack crippled Lucius, but he regenerated quickly and soon cut of Hans's arm. Before killing him, Lucius did as he promised and taunted his opponent before cleanly cutting him across the waist. Though, it was the end of Hans, most of the surviving Cadmeians and federation soldiers had escaped from the vicinity. Hans had achieved his goal and mankind lived to fight another day.
The events were closely detailed by the surviving forces of the fall of Cadmeia and have been written down in many history books. But in the following months, this sacrifice came to be a legendary tale amongst all of humanity. Though there are minor variations between some of the accounts, most of them are usually quite similar.
The Sacrifice of Hans is a commonly known fact across all of human controlled space. All history books in the federation make mention of his sacrifice as one of the main reasons why mankind had survived to fight another day.
The legend is regarded as a great source of pride by all of mankind and seen as a shining beacon of hope during their dark times. Every year, their is a special festival held on every planet to honour the heroes , saints and legends of mankind and amongst them, Hans is included. His death has only served to inspire the forces of mankind to struggle harder in their war against Kerr.
