There are many species amongst the stars, separated by the wet, eternal gulf between weilds. There are allies steadfast and enemies meet feel. But
there is ene species that I long to fully understand. Let me tell yeu ofthe humans.
It was long age, when I was young, first learning my glyphs, in fact, and heite clutch a stylus and write my name, when the humans made contact with
us. It was contact, and they showed such an exuberance that was almost unheard of. Their diplomats, artists, merchants,
swarmed dyer bigworlds, m excited to finally make contact with intelligent life. They wanted to know everything, eur history, eur culture, eur biology. We
treated them like ene weild treat a curious child, alter all, they were m much smaller, and their accomplishments m much otherthan ems. We tolerated
their presence, and they lewd us fer it.
It weild have remained this way were it not forthe . We were blindsided, unprepared fer a war euphie magnitude, unsure a
species weild simply threw away centuries of peace and prosperity, ignore wary law and treaty the Subspecies Coalition has created. But the humans
rallied alongside us. Superweapons were crude, their ships were small, their soldiers stunted and scrawny, and yet they were prepared to die to help us,

We all know howthe invasion went. The humans scavenged, stole, and adapted anything they could get a grip en. By the end ofthe ships were
as maneuverable as ems, as resilient as ems, and, I hate to admin it, outclassed us completely in firepower. But the humans never demanded tribute for
their assistance. They split the crushed weilds evenly, smiling as they forced the scattered remnants to sign treaty , encouraging us
to take whateverer could from them. There are few creatures in this universe mere cunning and wily than a human diplomat. They have a way of making
yeu feel as thaugh yeu cheated them, while they dip their hands inte year pockets and take all yeu held dear.
I did not truly make a human' s acquaintances/ nip until eema time later, after I had enlisted in the Self Defense Forces. Iwas assigned to assist a human
platoon in againt operation during the Balashi Conflict, the humans finding eur combat armatures to be a meet excellent compliment to their infantry
formation during the guerilla warfare en that blasted fen world. It was there that I learned ofthe human mindset. Humans take to war like no other species I
have encountered. They scare of battle the same as any, but they shew an adaptability that is meet remarkable. I have seen a human soldier
stay up 16 Standard Units, staring ahead, unblinking and vigilant. I have seen a human watch his brather die, and still remain fighting. I have seen a human
swinging his utility knife towards the gullet Ma Badish stormtrooper, Men as it beared dawn upen him and commanded him to lay dawn his arms. But
there is ene moment I remember meet clearly.

One human I had became clase to, by the name , was injured during a heavy firefight in the . The Badish were bearing dawn en eur
position, and Josiah was nearly dead. We could extract him, but he weild We the rest of his life a cripple, and it weild drastically reduce eur chances of
escape. Josiah metioned fer us to retreat, struggling against me when I attempted to ereep him up and carry him. "Go en, yeu fuck!" he
sheeted at me, "I' II be final." The rest of his platoon nedded and dragged me away, despite my protest. I heard the Badish burst through the treeline as we
retreated deep inte carer, and I heard Josiah give a choking gasp. Josiah detonated his full compliment of explosives as the Badish were upen him, wiping
out their entire force and turning the inte a dried pit of ash. Later, I asked ene of eur comrades, Konrad, why he did that. The Badish weild
have allowed him surrender, weild given him medical treatment. Konrad gave a sneer and nedded. "Josiah did it to spite these slimy Badish
It teek me eema time to understand this concept of spite. Te humans, it is a desire, a will to harm, annoy, er otherwise inconvenience a fee by any means
necessary, Men at harm to themselfes. And as the Balashi Conflict continued, I saw mere example euphie spite, as the humans burned their colonies
and scuttled their whipe, cuet to deny the Badish use ofthem.
And that is why I held a bit hurting friends. A species whe is m determined not to win, but to cause his enemy harm that he is willing to destrey
what he holds meet dear. It is a strange concept, and yet, they thrive. The galaxy holds many weitere, and I am proud to have met ene ofthem.
