The Six Cruelty Reflections of Karzh Akkadur

I. Cruelty is an extension of strength:

All living creatures strive to survive and procreate. This is their purpose in the world beneath Chaos. The strong tramples the weak, the clever outwits the dumb, the greater eats the lesser creature. What could be more natural?

Thus cruelty is an extension of strength.

II. Cruelty is the inner truth of life:

Pain and fear are part of the very essence of life. The direction of living creatures may be steered by exploiting that pain and fear, akin to how the strong exploits the lesser creature's weakness. How else to master life?

Thus cruelty is the inner truth of life.

III. Cruelty is beauty in nature:

All living creatures are part of nature, whether they dwell in nest or palace. Strength is not only moral and right, it is the only thing truly worthwhile in living nature. Cruelty is a higher form of strength.

Thus cruelty is beauty in nature.

IV. Cruelty is the key to domination:

No gratitude and no bonds of loyalty will truly last outside the tribe. If the weak creature succumbs to the strong creature, then so does the weak kin succumb to the strong kin. How else to live alongside other tribes than by dominating them? And how else to truly dominate without deeds of cruelty?

Thus cruelty is the key to domination.

V. Cruelty is a necessity of power:

When you have made others into your slaves, how else to uphold order amongst them than by cruelty? Kindness will never be remembered, yet making a bloody example of troublemakers will strike fear into the hearts of lesser creatures. The more cruel the deed, the more dread it bleeds.

Thus cruelty is a necessity of power.

VI. Cruelty is its own purpose:

To be cruel is to show strength. It is to be true to one's nature and realize its beauty through deeds. It is to dominate and rule those who are destined to nought but chains and shackles. Yet cruelty is in and of itself a higher value to strive for. It is the mark of greatness.

Thus cruelty is its own purpose.
