Primary reason

It's nothing less than one of my greatest joys today to present Zujenia for her elevation to Knighthood. My own master once called me a beacon of excellence, and the same now only holds twice as true for Arcona's newest Knight.

Over the course of the last month, Zuji has shown great activity and skill in participating in fifteen competitions, for which she's been awarded nine different Crescents. She has also demonstrated deft fictional drive, advancing to Rank IV in the Inquisitorius and earning eight Clusters of Ice for over 3000 words of character fiction. Alongside this, she's found plenty of time to study, exploring two of the courses from the Department of Leadership studies and passing both with flying colors. This and more stellar activity over the course of her brief, bright career thus far has earned her two merit awards, the most recent of which was a Dark Cross.

For all these accomplishments, but most of all, for her positive attitude, energy, and encouraging presence, we welcome Zujenia to the rank of Knight. Well earned and well done, my little jerboa. I know without doubt that you'll do great things - never forget how amazing you are when you do.

Additional reasons

Trying to keep a group of rowdy rebels under reign is no easy task. So, when we were somehow blessed with Zujenia, well I think all of Arcona let out a sigh of relief while shaking in terror(Goddess forbid we hurt the feelings of the Consul’s Apprentice). Not only is her quick wit and ‘totes adorbs’ sticker smiles something, I believe, we all look forward to each day, but her laid back nature and that slightly dark streak is a breath of fresh air.

Zuju is also one of the more patient people I’ve had the pleasure of hosting in Shadow Gate. She asks, doesn’t nag, waits and then asks again if I’ve forgotten something and that is exactly the right way to get me to feel bad over not doing I said I would. (IOW: She’s going to make a damn good leader).

I look forward to watching you grow, Miss Zujubean. Welcome to Knighthood and congratulations.

Zujenia (Atty 2.0) is a fresh ray of sunshine in what can sometimes be a pretty gray place. In the DB, it's easy for us as members and leaders alike to get caught up in the dramatics and politics and dealings of an internet club.

And then someone like Zujenia comes along, and shatters it with a giant hammer. Her energy, positive attitude, and desire to help others is infectious. Even when you feel like you're having a bad day, she somehow finds a way to brighten it.

So, it has been more than a pleasure to watch her slowly advance through her Journeyman Trials. It has been fun to watch her slowly integrate into our little club and become such a vibrant part of it. Aside from her checklist requirements, Zujenia literally is the first person to greet any new member to Telegram. They don't even have to be in her unit. It's endearing and adds to the things I've seen her do as a member. She boldly signed up for the Journeyman Tournament even though she had literally only joined the club two weeks prior. This tenacity is mirrored in everything she does, and I know that she will continue to do as a member of the Brotherhood.

Congratulations on completing your Knight trials, Zuj. The path does not stop here. We still have a lot of work to do. I hereby remove your title of "Rookie" and replace it with "Sharkbait." Wait, come back to me, I can do better...

It's always a joy to work with someone who has drive and a creative sense when it comes to their character. Zujenia joined Arcona running and she never really slowed down. It's not everyday I get to help someone so interested in character development that they affect my own character's growth, but she's incredibly capable at that as well. She's been an active member in the competition scene, enthusiastic and encouraging to her fellow Arconans, pushing and prodding people to be a part of the action. To say she's also been a social one would be an understatement. Her time on Telegram is spent enthusiastically, involving herself in in depth conversations and bonding with her fellows. She is what I hope to see in every new join, a friendly, competitive and character developing member.

You've been an awesome Journeyman and a great friend, Zujenia, and I look forward to everything you do in the future.

Getting a new member in the Brotherhood is often a hit-or-miss prospect. Some are a flash in the pan, quick to rush into activity and quicker still to fizzle out. Others are attracted by the shiny graphics and busy front page, but quickly leave the Brotherhood behind as soon as they get a new toy. Zujenia is a star, and there is little doubt that she'll manage to light up Arcona for years to come.

In the three months since she joined, Zuji has been a beacon of activity to the Clan, not just for her own participation - which has been numerous and varied - but in encouraging those around her to participate in everything the Brotherhood has to offer. From competitions, to the ACC, to the Shadow Academy, there isn't an aspect of the Brotherhood that Zujenia hasn't mastered, nor any she hasn't encouraged others to participate in wholeheartedly. She is the rarest sort of member, an absolute joy to work with, and I can't wait to see how far she goes.

For her drive, her constant peer encouragement and her unfailing optimism, it is my pleasure to recommend that Zujenia be raised to Knighthood.
