The 10 Commandments

As An Envy, I Hereby Pledge to Abide By These Laws

SYSTEM UNASSAILABLE: Envy shall reign by any means necessary.

NATURAL SELECTION: Only Envy is warranted to make rules for others.

WICKED MERCY: Envy shall relish in violence, inflicting damage whenever and however possible. There is no mercy for the wicked, and there is no mercy for the good.

MISERABLE PLEASURE: Envy shall delight in causing not only physical but also mental anguish.

CHAOS AND WRATH: Disorder and maelstrom shall prevail. Mistakes will be met with punishment, not forgiveness.

CURSED MARK: Envy has no sympathy, Envy is without rue, Envy is limitless, Envy will never stop coming.

CAUTION AND DECEIT: Lie and cheat when it is necessary, do not be quick to trust. Don’t fear to act, but act cautiously.

FRIENDS: The enemy of your enemy is not your friend, but an ally. You have no friends, only foes.

OMNIA CUM PRETIO: Everything comes with a price.

GUARDED LAIC: Envy’s malicious cause must be protected at all costs—I submit to its missions, conceal its true name, and hide my affiliation when in public.

Any disregard of these laws will be met with the INFANDUS POENIA, the Unspeakable Punishment.
