Normally I don't write, but for this I want to make an exception. This is a record of the day I learned the three virtues actually existed.
A few years ago I went on a mission to bring some mad Toa of Psionics to the Pit for the murder of a few Matoran.
It was not a very special job, the Toa had already been taken out by a member of the Order, so the only thing I had to do was pick her up. But when I arrived, everything had gone wrong.
The Toa stood in the middle of the village, holding some kind of stone, and all around her lay some Matoran, along with the body of my fellow Order member.
As soon as she spotted me, I felt my mind being thorn apart. Normally an Order member would be protected against such sort of attacks, but this Toa was way stronger then any of her kind I'd ever seen before.
She broke the mental shield and I felt myself fainting. I'd completely lost and sense of time and space, and when I woke up I saw the Toa standing right in front of me.
"I saw interesting things in your mind Botar. Now I know everything of your Organization, it's purpose, it's secret location and even it's leader. I will most likely sell this information to the highest payer, or just keep it for myself and overthrow that Toa Helryx and take control over the universe. Nothing can stop me now!"
Behind her I saw the Matoran awaken, they could have just fled to a nearby Koro and continued with their lives. But they didn't flee. Instead, I saw in their eyes that they were prepared to do anything to save the two Matoran who were lying next to me.
Some of them even fused their bodies and minds and became something i'd never seen before, others just grabbed some tools and prepared themselves to attack the Toa.
It was complete madness, a whole village was risking their lives to save two small Matoran and I wasn't able to do a thing.
The Toa, who had completely lost her sanity, observed the Matoran and struck them with a powerfull mental blast, the Matoran cried out in pain but even that could't stop those who were driven solely by unity.
My ally of the Order woke up too, and he was ready for revenge, as he walked towards her and tried to take her down with his sword.
But just when his sword was about to hit her, she dissapeared, and because I know teleportation, I hastly looked around to find her. A Matoran was first and shouted:
"There she is!"
I was too late, she had already summoned a incredible powerful bast of raw psionic energy , and when she unleached it everyone but me fell on the ground like puppets,and the Matoran separated.
She continued to use her power,determined to kill them all, starting with my ally.
I cannot allow this to happen I thought, it is my duty to protect... yes my duty. And thinking about this virtue, I got up and readied my power to teleport her to a place were she couldn't harm anybody.
I reached her and grabbed the mad Toa, but before I could teleport, she threw me off.
Her eyes spotted a ship at the horizon and she started to use her Kualsi to reach it.
Before I could do something, my ally got up saying: "You foolish Toa, this ends now!", and he slammed his sword in her body, exactly at the same time she teleported.
Her upper body had successfully teleported to the boat but the rest had remained in place. She was dead, that was sure.
Suddenly my ally gasped and fell into my arms then he said:
"Don't worry my friend, it's my destiny to die here." Those were to be his last words.
His heartlight stopped glowing and he died. I teleported him to Daxia and would report what had happened. The Matoran's terrorised minds wouldn't be able to remember a thing, but they would live.
The stone was lost forever, dissappearing with the ship behind the horizon.
And I, I would return to work with more love for the for it then I had ever before. For as from then on I knew that the things, we fight for, truly exist. Unity, Duty, Destiny.
