"They are the saviors of our species. Our last ditch effort to save all we have worked so hard to achieve. They are the darkness to the light, they are the legends of our legacy." - Supreme Fleet Admiral Lord Nicholas Mountbatten.
"For every pilot that falls, a trillion people rise up to fight in their place. For every child we tortured, a legend was born. They are worshiped as gods of old, as kings among men, the heavens sent their soldiers to cleanse us.There is no man who can call himself worthy of being a Pilot. We have guided nature into creating the very things we swore to destroy. And we must all worship them, lest they realize what they truly are." - Director General Grace Lionheart
"We set Lucifer free, and with them followed their angels. What we did, what I did, was turn our future into a weapon, they are evolution perfected. They are what we must become if we ever hope to survive this war, much less journey beyond the galaxy we have been so happily dying for. I do not ask forgiveness, I only ask that you look upon them and know that what I did, was for the survival of our entire race. For the survival, of their future." - Doctor Teller

The NIA makes a point of making the pilots hero's and legends among humanity, however it is Lucifer Squad that is championed as the saviors of humanity. Although no one but those who worked on Project Sahelanthropus knows, they are in fact not technically human. However the NIA has made a point of presenting them as superior.
