Aranos glanced at Arken and said, "Regardless, I prefer to offer them the chance. Is it not better to have a new recruit for our army, or even a prisoner, than to have a corpse? The former is far more useful. And besides, I am a Sith Lord, not some pathetic little dark jedi crazed with bloodlust." He turned back to the leaders and spoke once more, "Still, it matters little to me what choice you make, do not presume to think that I am merciful."
"Good and evil are but points of view. Many would call me evil for the things I have done, but to myself and to my followers, I am the saviour of the galaxy. I have not shirked from my duty because it is unpleasant or because others will disapprove. I regret the deaths I have caused on this path, but they were necessary to prevent far greater evil. So, Jedi, who are you to say what I do is wrong?"
-Darth Xenus, Emperor of the Sith
