Thrive Through Adversity

But where there is one defining moment of triumph for a servant of the Master of Mankind, there are often far more moments of loss and tragedy that define who they are. It is the sad fact of the 41st millennium. For in a time of endless war, failure reigns king. Yet for those who would reach a pinnacle of triumph, there comes a moment in which the greatest failure they shall ever know rears its head—their darkest hour.

Each one is different, but they are all of a truly horrific caliber of life-changing.
