Because I will not run. If there comes a day when I no longer have an army at my back, so be it. I will fight regardless.
I will slaughter as many of the enemy as the lord will allow -- and I will die well. I am no different than any of you!
Like you, I was taken from my own people. My own time! Subjugated by these vile conquerors who believe they have the right to do as they wish.
I stand before you, wearing the armor I won from them in battle, as proof they can be defeated. I have slain them until the ground was green with blood, but a river of blood waits to be spilt, and I cannot spill it alone.
Join me. Tell the enemy you will be slaves no longer. Fight with me, and their empire will crumble. Fight with me.
Together we will show them the rage of nations! It is all right to be afraid of the future. To be afraid of the unknown.
Those fears were once my own. But never again fear the creatures. Do not fear any who seek to bring harm to you. I will not allow it.
You saw me slaughter the creatures and bring their entire world to its knees. There is no one -- not on any world -- who can defeat me.
We will have a homeland -- and the power to keep it. What have the centuries done to you? I will make you whole again.

Aric of Dacia is a Visigoth barbarian captured by spider aliens and enslaved aboard their starship until he steals their ultimate weapon — the X-O Manowar armor.
Aric returns to Earth only to find that years have past. Now the most primitive man on the planet wields the most technologically advanced weapon in existence!
Valiant Entertainment began publishing new comics based on the Valiant Comics universe of characters in May The first issue sold through its initial print run of 45, copies.
Born into battle, Aric of Dacia, heir to the throne of the Visigoth people, never knew peace. Raised under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire in 5th century Europe, his entire life was a never-ending series of campaigns against Rome, until a far more terrifying enemy came into play: the brutal race and alien colonizers known as the Vine.
Abducted during a midnight scouting raid and taken to the far reaches of space, Aric and his fellow Visigoth captives lived their lives as slaves to the Vine, with no hope of escape.
After several years of captivity aboard a Vine colony ship, Aric led a revolt against his alien captors, storming the hallowed temple of the Vine and stealing their most powerful relic, Shanhara, the sentient X-O Manowar armor.
Aric bonded with the armor—the first being in living memory to survive the process—and turned the Vine's most powerful weapon against them. But a crushing counterattack by the Vine left many of Aric's allies dead or dying.
Inexperienced with the armor himself, Aric barely escaped the Vine fleet before rocketing back to Earth.
Upon his return, Aric learned that due to the effects of time dilation, 1, years have passed since his abduction and he was now stranded in the 21st century.
Distraught by the loss of his family and people, Aric secluded himself in the Peruvian jungle, but the Vine were unwilling to leave their most sacred relic in human hands.
Vine legend told that their greatest champion would one day wear the armor; news of a human controlling the suit could spell massive civil unrest for their empire.
To recover it, covert Vine agents called "plantings", left on Earth hundreds of years ago and modified to appear human, recruited the super-spy Ninjak to kill Aric and return the armor.
During one incident while trying to protect Gafti from a beating, Aric had his left hand cut off by one of the slavers. Slowly the humans started to sneak in tools into their cages and after receiving directions to the Armory by the slave who tends the halls, Aric formed a plan of escape.
After a number of years, Aric and the other slaves finally managed to gather enough tools to use as weapons and escaped their cages.
The humans made their way to the Armory, killing a number of The Vine on the way. Sensing imminent death, the humans turned to see that Shahnhara had deemed Aric worthy and he now possessed the power of an army.
Aric was a barbarian around A. From an early age Aric was skilled in combat both unarmed and with any weapon.
