The Oath of a Toa

Today's experiment was an absolute success. Based on the primitive warrior species of this planet, we have created the first of a race of heroes to protect our workers, the matoran. We have named this first test "Helryx." I sit today, to pen the oath of the Toa:

We are the Toa.
We pledge ourselves,
In the service of the Great Spirit.

We stand,
The candle in the Darkness,
The last rays of the sun before the oncoming Night.

We fight,
The enforcers of the Peace,
The purgers of War.

Our Unity in purpose.
Our Duty to protect.
Our Destiny to serve.

Our lives,
For the matoran,
We do forfeit.

To kill, is to die.
To steal, is to be stolen from.
To die, is to live forever.

We are the Toa.

Thanks all! I took some liberty with it because literally the ONLY thing we know about the toa code is that they can't kill.

This looks like and feels like an actual Oath of the Toa.

Very funny, but NO.

Feel free to use it. By the way, forgive my ignorance, what is Project Mata?

Cool, can't wait to see it!

EDIT: in case anyone cares, I split the second stanza in half just to make the whole thing flow better visually. other than that no changes were made.
