'All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as
you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my
father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride.
I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving
half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade.
I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for
which it must be done.
But all I ever wanted was the truth.'
– Opening lines to the Book of Lorgar,
First Canticle of Chaos
