Arcturus Mengsk: They say a man never really knows himself... until his freedom's been taken away. I wonder... how well do you know yourself?
Tychus Findlay exits his prison.
Adjutant: Prisoner, step forward onto the platform.
Tychus Findlay moves to the platform ahead him.
Arcturus Mengsk: Convict 626. Murderer. Pirate. Traitor. Today... you go free. But as you'll soon learn... even freedom has a price.
Machines seal and lock a marine combat suit on Findlay.
Adjutant: Combat suit sealed and locked.
Arcturus Mengsk: You'll carry your prison with you. That armor will be your new cell. Make no mistake... War is coming. With all its glory... and all its horror. Mr. Findlay - your freedom awaits.
Tychus Findlay: Hell... it's about time.[1]
