What will you sacrifice?
Anything in the service of the Legion.
What is your greatest ambition?
To gain fame and recognition for service to the Legion. To earn the rank of Centurion and lead a Century to glory.
What is your greatest hatred?
The enemy.
What have you lost?
After the failure of his first mission as Sergeant, Octavo's unit was subject to the punishment of decimation for it's failure. Legionnaire Harmon had served with honour but was chosen for the decimation and executed. Octavo took this loss as a personal insult and took Harmon's gladius as a reminder of the cost of failure.
What do you fear?
Dying insignificantly and without having added to the glory of the Legion.
What does it mean to be a soldier in the Imperial Guard?
It means a chance to kill and conquer in the name of the true divine.
