"My God after that speech, I think I'd follow her straight to the bowels Hell and back."
"Well then thank god shes only asking us to go church." - 2 IWS Phoenix crewmembers after hearing one of several inspiring speeches to younger STO recruits.
Zoe Olivia Toreson Graystone is one of the most fundamentally important religious historical figures in the near entirety of Imperial Colonial and Cylon history. Zoe's achievements in cybernetics, holographics, and base religious philosophy had helped shape what modern unified and free Colonial society is today.
Zoe is one of the founding members of the Monad Church along side remarkable women such as Jane Morland, Zoe led colonial and earth based humanity out of the dark ages of colonial imposed paganism and into a more enlightened and inclusive societal golden age.
Many Imperial historians (both human and Cylon) agree that to go even further if Zoe Graystone had never been born people like her and Donal Mortinson society as a general whole may not even exist.
Zoe was born into one of the most powerful families in the 13 colonies post 1st and 2nd Earth/Cylon wars. The Graystone family were the Colonies most productive multi-corporation force creating nearly everything from food generators to military products including the first series of totally human created Cylon defense units
