I remember one day when I was a guard in my post in Luvia, it had been a few months since the humans settled into our world, the Council had heard and seen their exploits against the Kallr, and they were all the wiser for offering a peaceful solution to things.
Well, that day, two of the human settlers had decided to make a trip into the wild, they were new and had taken a day off, they asked me to be their guide, seen as I didn't have guarding duty that day either.
Well, we hadn't seen the prowess of the humans when they fought, we didn't see just how fearless they were in a moment of life-or-death, but most of the guards had not seen how the Kallr worlds had been left.
It was not their massive warfare or their strength in numbers that won them wars, it was their sheer ability for fighting, no, not fighting, for killing, they already had the knowledge to kill and destroy engraved into their minds since their birth, each one of them.
On the trip, we found a Skralld, I ran back immediately, I knew enough not to try to fight against one of them. The two humans prepared to fight the bloody titan wielding our spears, not even their laser weapons, but our own military spears.
One of them forged an strategy on the second, have the Skralld chase one down, while the other attacked from behind, and immediately they went. One of them ran and the Skralld took chase, the other one simply jumped into it and jammed his spear into the beast, it tore off the carapace with only the strength of his arm.
And as the Skalld whinced in pain the other one went back, and finished off the beast.
It wasn't so much this, though. These two humans were dressing in their simple clothing, a fine layer of fabric that they used to avoid cold, as they told me. I was fully armored, and yet they took him with only their wits and their strength.
Eh, not that good, and probably too big, but I'm kind of inspired.
