Honor the Tethyos Compact that is the heart of a largos: track it, kill it, bring me proof.

Sayeh al' Rajihd in Wet Work

The Concordat of the Tethyos Houses, or less formally, the Tethyos Compact, is a set of principles created to guide the largos. It was agreed upon when the Tethyos Houses convened.

What little is known of the details of the Tethyos Compact is that it expects the largos to act with honor and without mercy.[1] Largos prove themselves only against the most able of foes; fighting a weak or unprepared opponent brings dishonor to a largos assassin and is viewed as a violation of the Tethyos Compact.[2][3] The Tethyos Compact is the "heart of a largos"; in order to honor it during a hunt, one must track, kill, and bring proof of the death of a target.[4] The largos invoke the name of the Concordat of the Tethyos Houses when they honor an oath or greet an ally.[5][6]
