In Memory of Silir Uradir,
“Purity is like a butterfly.” Silir Uradir was a man of most pure intentions, at which fell to some of the most impure of crimes. Despite this, the intent was what mattered to us Kharajyr. While we saw his acts as archaic, they were his. The trial of his was a travesty, to be had and to have come to such a conclusion. Looking past what wrongs were done, we see his devotion to maintaining Maehr’sae Hiylun’ehya of most pure intent, with his unexpected death surely an unwelcome surprise to us all. But we are Kharajyr, and therefore have no right to plead their innocence under the eyes of the Pararin’tir in the light of purity, guided by the hand and teachings of your blessed Larihei.
We honor his death, a most noble statement to sustain our civilization in tandem with your’s. Alas, Silir Uradir has called for our immediate secession. While this falls on our ears without surprise, it is a loud, powerful voice telling us to break away and free ourselves from the shackles of conformity for our own path of Ascension, solitary and independent from those we should call our most magnificent ally in this world. Silir Uradir speaks to us in life, and now despite his death, he speaks through his memory we will hold dear to our lasting breath. Silir Uradir – a man who transcended the bindings of what is taught, for what would otherwise bring prosperity.
In spite of his suggestion, I as High Aelkos of our people will honor and must see to it that I take up his work to bring us peace and proceed forwards, albeit with caution. His intent was unity, for us to uplift the Mali’thill, and in turn the Mali’thill to the Kharajyr. I will say it time and time again – in all our differences, we Kharajyr seek a similar path to the Mali’thill. It is necessary. It is destiny. We will not secede. We will not secede.
Regardless of our biology, we are ephemeral.
We will never be unfettered, for we should never yearn to be.
The endless hunt for purity is necessary.
~ Silir Uradir ~
The Kharajyr honor him and his cause. We hope that the Mali’thill will as well. Do not forget his actions in life, do not forget his beliefs. Let them ring LOUD through the course of time onwards. His end may be sullied, but his beliefs and life were most otherwise.
Maehr’sae Hiylun’ehya. Metztli Yectenehua.
In Silver Starlight,
~ Ri’Haskir High Aelkos of the Kharajyr
