- "I must face the truth squarely and without flinching from duty. My enemies are many, my allies few. I dedicate this weapon, given unto my hand at the behest of the Emperor, to their destruction. I regard its function as my only duty: you live only to bring cleansing fire to the enemies of the Empire. Take up your blaster and sword, your armour and fealty to the Empire, and go forth."
- ―The Imperial Oath
The Imperial Oath (High Imperial: Imperialis Iuramento) was first created by Emperor-Primarch Aeaolen Kicka™ when he became Interim Emperor of the Galactic Empire (Mar). The Imperial Oath is sworn by all members of the Empire when they become a citizen and if they join a branch of the Empire.
