This article is about a song that tells the story of Tirandys' choice. For the concept in Kencyr ethics, see Honor's Paradox (concept). For the sixth novel in the series, see Honor's Paradox (book).

When Gerridon fell, Tirandys felt honor-bound to follow, even though he knew it would lead to his own damnation. Many others followed his example, including Keral. The story of that bitter choice was told in an ancient lay called "Honor's Paradox."

But that was my choice, and I must stand by it. That is my honor now, for as long as I live. May I die soon.' 'B-but that's "Honor's Paradox"!' Jame stammered."
