"And shepherds we shall be, for thee my lord, for thee. Power hath descended forth from thy hand, that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command. We shall flow a river forth to thee, and teeming with souls shall it ever be. In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti."
―Aiden Bradley before the execution of a legislator on Eridanus II
Aiden Bradley was a Colonial Military Administration infantryman who later became one of the most wanted men in the Orion Arm of the galaxy. What little is known about him is that he had participated in the Far Isle campaign, and sometime in 2496 he began conducting arms deals with terrorist factions. When a warrant was issued for his arrest, he went off the grid and later resurfaced in 2507 as the executor of several legislators on Eridanus II, which was publically broadcast across all public COM channels before Section-II could censor them.
Aiden Bradley is a devout Catholic, despite the fact that the Secessionist Union is largely irreligious.
The prayer said before his execution is his family's prayer, passed down from generation to generation.
The prayer comes from The Boondock Saints, one of the author's favorite movies of all time.
