The Brave Man:
The brave man is tall, very tall, small, fat, thin, very fat, very thin, somewhat like a stone pillar, moderately
capable, good of appearance. The brave man is an Eagle or a Jaguar warrior, scarred, painted, courageous, brave, resolute!
The good, the true brave man is one who stands as a man, who is firm of heart, who charges, who strikes out
at the foe. He stands as a man, he rallies, he takes courage; he charges, he strikes out at the foe. He fears no one, none
can meet his gaze.
The bad brave man is one who leads others to destruction by his deception, who secretly puts one in difficulty;
who visits other's houses; who yells; who slays others viciously, who treacherously forsakes one, who swoons with terror.
He becomes frightened, he swoons with terror, he secretly puts one in difficulty.

The Valiant Man
In the valiant man are invincibility, robustness, power. He is powerful, rugged, strong. The good valiant man
is one who excels others--a victor, a conqueror, a taker of captives. He is reckless; he destroys, he charges the foe; he
takes captives; he besieges, he sweeps away the foe. He glorifies himself, he glorifies himself by his exploits.
The bad valiant man is vainglorious, a boaster that he is an Eagle warrior, a Jaguar warrior, a brave warrior.
He pretends to be a brave warrior; he brags of himself, he boasts that he is a brave warrior, yet his actions tells otherwise.

The Resolute Man
The resolute man is of many virtues. He is a bulwark, furious in war; a rabid, a vigorous warrior; a great leader.
The good resolute warrior is a skirmisher, an aggressor, who hurls himself to his death; a vanquisher, a sweeper
away of the foe. He encircles the foe; he turns them back. He instills courage, he instills pride. He is unchallenged; no
man meets his gaze. He remains firm; he stands up against one--against many.
The man without firmness is an avoider of battle--dainty, delicate of body, self-indulgent, afraid, fearful,
cowardly. He retreats--he is afraid; he acts like a woman--he is effeminate; he instills cowardice; he causes riots.

The Valiant Warrior
The valiant warrior wears his hair over the back of his head; he has his lip pendant; ear plugs; war devices,
shield, war club.
The good valiant warrior is a sentinel, a strategist, a tracker, a seeker of roads to the foe, a skirmisher,
a taker of captives. He commands respect; he spreads--implants--fear; he terrorizes; he takes captives; he is reckless.
The bad valiant warrior is unreliable--one who sleeps at his post, who leads into ambush, who causes death through
neglect. He is afraid of war, timid; he is cowardly in his retreat.

The Commanding General, The General
The commanding general, as well as the general, the military governor, the ruling general: his office is warfare.
He is the maneuver of troops--a courageous warrior, one whose mission is to go to his death.
The good commanding general, or general, is able, prudent, a holder of vigil, a maneuverer of forces. He devised
strategy; he declares, he assumes responsibility of war. He distributes, commands, supervises the arms; he distributes, commands,
supervises the provisioning. He lays out, he searches out the roads to the foe; he tracks them. He establishes the war encampments,
the prisons, the marked places where one must attack in enemy land. He places the sentries, posts the chosen ones, stations
the spies, the hidden ones, the concentrated ones. He interrogates them; he discovers the places where the enemy will approach--their
weaknesses, their strengths. He understands his own weaknesses and strengths.
The stupid commanding general, or general, causes trouble, causes death, leads one into danger, into an untimely
