Mako's been a busy boy since receiving his first sacramental award back in November. For starters, he's participated in 78 competitions of all types, while organizing or co-organizing another 5 of his own. He's won 2 Crescents with Sapphire Stars, 4 Crescents with Emerald Stars, 5 Crescents with Topaz Stars, and 2 Crescents with Quartz Stars.
Mako's one of those rare members who does everything. He's earned 3 Clusters of Ice for both solo and run-on writing. He's earned 7 Clusters of Graphite, in additional to showing off plenty of non-awardable art in the Satele Shan and DB Art Chat Telegram channels. As a gamer, he's taken home 104 Clusters of Fire and 49 Clusters of Earth. In the Shadow Academy, Mako's passed 5 courses and earned a Dark Maven in Flight and a Dark Savant in Warfare. Most impressively, he's one of only 29 members to hold the Dark Sage degree in Warfare, a fitting capstone for someone who's long since established himself as one of the DJB's top gamers.
I was lucky enough to count Mako as a mentor during my first DB leadership position as his Aedile. Though it has fallen to me to harass the members of Satele Shan to "Get it! Get it!" these days, Mako continues to serve as a role model for all of our members. May this Grand Cross be only the latest step in an inexorable march to the top ranks of the Brotherhood.
Quaestor, Satele Shan
Mako has continued to be a leader within the ranks for COU since ending a very successful term as House Shan Quaestor. We're lucky to have members like him who can always be counted on to show up for an event, enrich the community with their presence or just sit back and game with. He is one of the Clan's biggest cheerleaders and has a direct impact on the entire unit.
Thank you for everything you do my friend! Please accept this small token for our gratitude.
