Pride, in the Ultima series, is the anti-virtue of Humility.

Pride often refers to a strong sense of self-respect, a refusal to be humiliated as well as joy in the accomplishments of oneself or a person, group, or object that one identifies with, which is a virtue. However, in the Ultima series, it refers to excessive pride, and is an anti-virtue as described below.

As an anti-virtueEdit

The New Magincian ghosts also have a few things to say about Humility and Pride, from which the following may be constructed:

The absence of Truth, Love, and Courage is Pride. Pride is the surest measure of goals never attained. Pride goes before, shame comes after. This shame leads to awareness of Humility, the root from which all Virtues grow. Humility is to strip oneself of all conceits.
