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.
