The First Citadel
"Some have argued that the University of Devotions is the heart of the Realm. I would argue that they are wrong. From the University comes Her Will, but Her Heart, that comes from Armúr'Tih-sant, The First Citadel.
This ancient building is almost as old as the Realm itself. It was the first building that the Devouring Mother decreed be built, and it will be last building that remains where Her fails.
Oh, please, do not look at me as if I am Divergent. Just be logical. Before the Resurgence, Her Glory, there was Devastation, and while we dream that Her Will should last eternity, She is not a god, and so She will end... and with Her ending, so will everything we known die. Another Devastation. We, unlike our generations in the future, have the blessing of living during Her Glory, and The First Citadel is a monument for Her love, Her sacrafice, and Her dedication to us, reminding us of our highest ideals as Brothers of the Medicament Order, and the standards that we must demonstrate for all of Her Citizens.
So, The First Citadel, is the heart the Realm. From there our capacity, knowledge and empathy flows. All Brothers begin their first training and their final training there. We have all been there, and we will all return."
Brother Gamanat of the Yellow.
