The Gauntlet Has Been Thrown
SISU. From the roadless wilderness of the Far North, through the snow-covered forests shrouded in the Eternal Night of the winter, echoes our warcry. A new brotherhood honed by the harsh Finnish nature, well versed in battle, we have arrived to make our mark in any endeavour we choose to partake.
Ours is the honor, ours is the glory, ours is the whine, ours is the way of war; victory the sweet ambrosia and defeat the taste of dust and ashes. No retreat, no surrender. We shall prevail or we shall die trying. Our name embodies the indomitable will of our ancestors: perseverence, determination, courage . . . yet it means more than just the mere sum total of these qualities.
Upholding the tradition of the mythical heroes of Kalevala, the great Finnish epic, we shall overcome the odds by strength or by skill. We shall never cheat our enemies nor betray our friends. Integrity, honesty and truth shall be our armor, and righteousness our holy weapon. For our enemies we promise death; for our friends, respect.
What must be done, will be done. This is the Way of Sisu.
