Quotes of Salome

The Varkans came to the New World and didn't wage war unless they deemed it necessary to defend themselves, their faith or their interests. Varkan settlers had no interest whatsoever in conquest and assimilation of aboriginal tribes. In their view, we were all servants of Dedamitsaze and lived on Her good will. They didn't have this sentiment of superiority and this fever for "civilizing savages" so many other Illypnian nations had. All they did was discuss with native tribes, establish trade, and if they saw their way of living and religion were similar or at least in accordance with basic Armazist values, they tried to show that they believed the same things and should work together, help each other as servants of Dedamitsaze. If that wasn't the case, however, if what they saw wasn't in accordance with Armazist values, they didn't hold any relation with these tribes or at times waged war. It wasn't uncommon to see Varkan settlers, white skins among brown skins, fighting alongside aboriginal tribes against Illypnian settlers of the Christian faith mostly. Varkans didn't force their beliefs on anyone. Varkans didn't assimilate and abused aboriginals in the New World. They didn't kidnap children from their families to "bleach" them into good civilized Christians.
—Salome on 11 September 2010 in "New World Nation"
Mze makes love to me every morning when I go outside, caressing my face with His warmth, lighting my world with His rays.
—Salome on 2011 in The Citadel
You ask me if it is all right to kill in the name of a religion. Yes, yes it is, if it is just; not if you are misguided by your impulses or your false religion. I do not promote violence to solve conflicts, even metaphysical ones involving the Gods. Dialogue will always be preferable to violence, but in extreme cases, killing is justifiable, as last resort. Armazism is a religion of harmony with the Gods, as a natural order. Such extreme measures should never be taken unless that harmony is seriously threatened or affected by some, in any case they should be stopped. Should we take their lives and give them back to Armazi? If their crime is too great and their soul unable to be enlightened, I say yes.
—Salome on 4 December 2014 in Klow when asked about the Faceless Men
