Primary reason

Kasula/A’lora or Moro as most know him has been a key leader in COU since before many of us joined the Brotherhood. I’ve had the honor of working with him directly since returning to the Clan two years ago and he has been one of the measuring sticks I strived to live up to both as a Consul and a Councilor of Urr. Since his last promotion (which was his last recognition for Clan service) Moro has served 6 months as Consul and 5 months as Quaestor of House Shan. I served as his Proconsul for his Consul time and as his Consul for his Quaestor time. I can firmly say that no one has done more to establish COU’s lore in this critical period than Moro did.

During his final months as Consul I got to work with Moro on the Homecoming clan event which had 9 sub competitions and 24 unique participants within the clan. The Homecoming event established some key points of lore for the Clan, specifically how COU came to be accepted by the natives of the Kiast system. He also worked behind the scenes to help set me up for success as I took the reigns of Consul. I don’t know if I can fully quantify the amount of conversations we had before and after I became Consul but Moro was a valuable source of advice both for fictional and administrative aspects of the job.

They say leaders never fully retire and indeed this is the case with Moro, he came back into summit to serve as Shan’s quaestor during a transitory period. Not only did I sleep better at night knowing I had a proven and reliable leader in the critical position as QUA but he set Maximus aka Landon up for success. Together they developed the Last Voyage of the Kesaret house event which had 7 sub comps and 11 unique participants. Even after handing over the reigns of the House he continued to assist in the development of Shan lore as Landon attests to.

Moro is a model leader and someone I’d hold up as an example of what a title holder should be. As I enter a semi-retired / mentor phase of my life in the Clan I hope I can be half as effective as Moro has been as our first Consul and one of our inaugural title holders.

Additional reasons

I had the pleasure of working under Moro for 2 months as his Aedile where his guidance and inspiration towards the House helped me continue to drive it forward into a continue growth of activity. Together we ended up creating and updating over 10 different wiki articles for the House page to include the new "Defender of Satele Shan" competition and wiki document page.

Next we were able to create and run a House even called "The Last Voyage of Kesaret" that contained 7 sub-competitions and had the unique twist of utilizing the members lore from submissions into the House event fiction that would stay with the House wiki history.

Even after stepping down 3 months ago to further his own studies for school in RL, he still has maintained an active presence as an advisor to both the Clan and the House. His activity since then has still been top notch. He was able to participate in 12 GJW competitions, where he earned nailed a 1st place finish netting the Clan some major placement points and earning himself a Gold Nova in the competition "Machines are Stronger".

Moro truly is a leader to this Clan who has been around since before I can remember. In and out of leadership his advice is respected, warranted, and many times needed at the right times. He is my Obi-Wan of the Clan. He always knows when to chime in and the areas we could seek out to best grow when the time is needed. Moro thank you for all that you have done brother. This is well deserved. Congrats brother!

I have had the pleasure of working under Moro multiple times first when he was Consul of the Clan and then as Quaestor. Both times I have been impressed by his ability to take charge of a situation and develop impressive competitions like the "Last Voyage of the Kesaret" event and his work on several competitions to develop COU's hosts: the Vatali including "Tracing the Linage", "Real Estate on Kiast", "A Guardsman's Symbol" and others. Not only were these enjoyable for the members, but they helped develop our new fictional home in the Kiast System.

Congratulations Moro, you have earned this! I look forward to continuing to work with you!
