Event ID
Augur Edgar Drachen
Grand Cross
Requested by
Colonel Alethia Archenksova
Primary reason

Ed was one of COU's guiding lights during GJW XII. Not only did he earn himself 27 Seals of Wrath for doing very nearly every competition, but he also took 1 Silver Nova and 4 Bronze Novae home for Odan-Urr.

This fits in with his overall activity since his last recognition on 21 September. In addition to his war activity, Ed participated in an addition 15 non-container comps (for a total of 42) and won 4 crescents. He's one of the Brotherhood's premier gamers, but his activity is hardly limited to that. In addition to his 5 Pendants of Blood, 880 Clusters of Fire, and 286 Clusters of Earth, Ed earned 11 Clusters of Ice and 16 Clusters of Graphite. To round things out, he also completed 2 Shadow Academy courses.

It would also be remiss of me not to mention Ed's continued outstanding service as Quaestor of Hoth. His Aedile will cover that in a bit more detail below, but suffice it to say that Ed is one of those most engaged leaders anywhere in the club. He fosters strong relationships with his members and sets a sterling example for them. In my (completely unbiased) opinion, Hoth is one of the healthiest and most vibrant houses in the Brotherhood, and Edgar deserves the lion's share of the credit for that.

Additional reasons

Since Arch spoke of Edgar's activity since his last merit, a second Sapphire Blade in as many weeks, I will speak of my experiences with Edgar at the helm of House Hoth.

Seven months ago, I first approached Edgar Drachen — a completely unknown person to me at the time — when the notice of Aedile Applications for my current position were posted. I knew nothing about House Hoth and the wiki had been practically wiped, as the lore had been erased with New Tython. He was very helpful with this information, impressed me with competitions that were running and asked that I write up an idea for one.

In that time, I've learned that Edgar Drachen puts his absolute soul into every task he sets out to do, contradictory to his extremely laid-back attitude. On my first day as Aedile, I pulled up his activity history for the spreadsheet and managed to ask how he managed to do all of that and still have time for eating or sleeping. His humble response of 'I do what I can', immediately followed by him telling me to not worry about him until I was finished with all of our members on the tracker, as he gives no concern over his own accomplishments in favor of our members receiving recognition for theirs first.

This is just the kind of man that Edgar Drachen is. Selfless, driven, hard-working and one of the most active leaders I've ever seen. Every thought is dedicated toward the members of House Hoth and Clan Odan-Urr as a whole and ensuring that they have the best experience possible.

Due to his stellar contributions and 'lead by example' attitude in GJW XII: Retribution, which was instrumental in Odan-Urr becoming First Clan of the Brotherhood, I am pleased to be recommending Edgar Drachen for a Grand Cross. Congratulations, my friend. You've more than earned this and you're going to leave a pair of colossal boots to fill for whomever takes over in your stead... And that's if you decide to step down, you workaholic.
