Justinios Drake is one of the finest Taldryan has brought up in some time. He is a stellar asset to the Clan, emphazising what it means to be a true Tally. Not afraid, he stands his ground in front of any other member even those higher up the chain of command to point out at things that doesn't work as they should while at the same time being the hell of an active member who is not only successfully running a House within Taldryan where his monthly Research Projects draw a good amount of interest from members from all around the Clan but keeps to amaze me by the sheer and constant amount of personal activity he constributes to the Brotherhood.
With his activity, quantity meets quality. Out of ninety competitions, Justinios placed in nearly every third of them, collecting a total of twenty-six Crescents of varying Levels. While Justinios shines in all different sorts of Competitions no matter if Graphics or Fiction, it is Gaming where Justinios really excels. Gamingwise, Justinios collected well over one thousand Clusters of Earth (1732 Clusters of Earth) as well as 138 Clusters of Fire and 6 Pendants of Blood.
But Justinios activity doesn't stop at gaming or participating in competitions. The Shadow Academy too, isn't something unknown to him. Since his last elevation in rank, Justinios passed almost twenty different Exams, gained 2 Dark Maven Degrees (Historical Legends and Leadership) as well as one Dark Savant Degree (History and Lore).
And yet there is more Justinios shines. Serving as the Quaestor of the only House of Taldryan, he made it his personal goal to bring Ektrosis back to its former glory by utilizing a unique way to incorporate the moral decisions made by the members of Ektrosis in competitions revolving around his Research Projects into the fictional development of the House.
On top of that Justinios has recently assisted the Grandmaster in cataloged more than two hundred events and releases related to the Brotherhood or Star Wars in general while most recently having joined the Fist staff as Magistrate where he has already run several Gaming competitions.
All this has happened since his last promotion seven month ago and proves the awesomeness that defines Justinios Drake. For this it is my greatest honor to submit this recommendation for you to be promoted to the second rank of Equites: Savant. Congratulations Justinios.
Consul of Clan Taldryan

Justinios Drake, what can I say about our tiny Aleena. He is one of Taldryan’s finest members and is overall an amazing person both in and out of character. While others have listed his specific activity, allow me to speak of the person. When I rejoined the DB, Justinios was a stranger to me, but the more we spoke, the more I realized just how good he is at what he does. He has vital real life experience that carries over very well to the Brotherhood and when I served as his Aedile for a brief period we were able to discuss and work with each other right off the bat. He is easy to work with and willing to stand up for what he believes in, passionate to the core. Since he walked into the DB he has been able to improve and inspire everyone around him, including myself. That is a special trait that not everyone has. He brings to the table a unique style that we could not do without and has been diligent in making Ektrosis and Taldryan a better place for new members and veterans alike. He has brought us the SRI (Sphere of Reasearch and Intelligence) and has been pivotal in creating countless competitions to correspond with the branch. Of course that is just the tip of the Iceberg of his accomplishments. He creates and promotes activity whenever and wherever he can and is always ready to aid his House and Clan with an unrelenting loyalty and dedication. He is extremely active in all walks of the DB, even stepping up in the gaming community as a Magistrate and working in the Shadow Academy as a Docent. He has earned a slew of awards, created and participated in countless competitions and is always there on Telegram, even if you just need someone to talk to. While most would look at this recommendation as fluffery, I assure you everything I said is true and from the heart. He’s become, not just a member of our Clan, but a friend. There is no one more deserving of this elevation. Congrats, brother. I look forward to working with you for a long long time.

As already noted, Justinios' activity has been well beyond the norm. However, one of the reasons he truly deserves this promotion is for his continued dedication to the Clan and the club as a whole. Until I re-joined Taldryan, I was not overtly familiar with Justinios. However, I quickly came to see the drive that he had for this club. I joined Ektrosis specifically because of the work he was doing on the fictional front, with the creation of the SRI and the series of competitions around it. The competitions were fun and original, and we were creating something unique for the Clan.
Jumping into Proconsul allowed me to work closer with him, and my appreciation only grew. He wanted the Clan to succeed. He is a consummate leader and professional, in constant communication with both those under him as well as with the rest of the Summit. He is also looking for new and better ways to help the Clan grow and prosper. On top of that he has jumped into the wider world of the DB, specifically in gaming, wanting to help grow SW games once more. It's a daunting task, but his willingness to do the necessary work should be commended.
Congratulations on moving up the next rung, and I am hoping to see much much more from you!

Rian's excellent recommendation says a lot, but I'd like to add my piece.
As soon as Justinios joined Taldryan, I knew we had a special one. He took part in every single type of activity, but, more importantly, he also joined in with discussions across the DB's many communications channels. In doing this, he has helped bring Taldryan back into the forefront of the DB's culture. Once again, the clan is racking up clusters and winning competitions, and this is thanks in no small part to Justinios.
Since he's stepped up as Quaestor, he's only improved further. Under his leadership, House Ektrosis has been completely revitalised, and, even though I've been in the club for many, many years, I am still learning from him every day as his Aedile. Every single member of Ektrosis, from the grizzly old veterans, to the newest members, know exactly who Justinios is and what he does. To me, that typifies exactly what a Quaestor should be.
Enjoy the custom lightsaber, weird blue science guy.
