Fellow Solarans, it is a great shame that I have taken the position of Lord Avatar under these terrible circumstances, however, we must move past this. John was a great leader and he will be missed, we shall never forget what he did for our religion. For those of you who have remained faithful to our religion and our ways, I thank you. For those of you that are thinking of leaving, I want you to know something, I understand that you have no faith in my ability as Lord Avatar due to my past but I say this religion has given me back my life. I am not the same as I once was, I am stronger than ever before and I can assure you all that I am determined to make our religion even stronger than before. I will lead our people into a new age and I will bring people into our religion. I will make this religion last two thousand years. Hail Solara.
