Thomas Miller Trial Transcript

With the death of Casca, his Regime officially ended. While some groups may still hold to his twisted vision, their stranglehold on Britannian civilization is swiftly waning. May these dark days pass into memory, and the wounds caused mend. However, we cannot allow ourselves to forget the lessons learned - we must remain eternally vigilant.
