- "I shall remain vigilant and unyielding in my pursuit of the enemies of the Coalition. I will defend and maintain the order of life as it was proclaimed by the Allfathers of the Coalition in the Octus Canon. I will forsake the life I had before so I may perform my duty as long as I am needed. Steadfast. I shall hold my place in the machine and acknowledge my place in the Coalition. I am a Gear."
- — (Oath of the Coalition, sworn by all Recruits)
The Allfathers were the heads of state of Imulsion rich nations that united under the Octus Canon and formed the Coalition of Ordered Governments during the fuel crisis predating the Pendulum Wars.
Paintings of the Allfathers in plain gilt frames were displayed in the House of Sovereigns. Allfathers Avenue was named after them, as was the Thrashball Competition known as the Allfathers Cup, in which the Cougars won against the Sharks one year.
