Old Rank

New Rank
Knight (Journeyman 4)
Requested by
Battlelord Tasha'Vel Versea
Primary reason

Jinius has been one of my members that since returning has been working hard to work his way up the ranks. Since his time, he has participated in five competitions, completed an ACC battle, has written over 17,368 words of fiction, passed 3 courses and gained 2 degrees, earned himself a ruby, Amethyst, 3 Sapphire, and two Emerald stars. He also has 39 clusters of Ice and two clusters of Graphite.

On top of that, he has also taken initiative and joined with the Shadow Academy leadership and is now a Shadow Academy professor.

I am impressed with his determination and I see no reason to not reward him the title of Knight as he has completed everything necessary for the rank.

So without further ado, I present to all of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood and Naga Sadow a new Knight among the ranks, Jinius Griffith!

Congratulations and Well done!

Additional reasons

Jinius has certainly been an active member since his return. He is a fierce warrior in the ACC and one of the few people that I look forward to crossing blades with. When I am troubled with the weight of leadership, I can always find solace in the conversations that I have with Jinius. I believe that Jinius possesses the strength of arms and strength of character to serve as a Knight Of Clan Naga Sadow. May the Force guide you and may your enemies fall upon your mighty blade.

Well, I do have to preface what I am about to say with by admitting I have known Jinius for a number of years. So when he returned to the Brotherhood, I had some high expectations, especially given what he done in the past. He is a capable writer, and has proven to be up to my expectations and beyond.

He has fairly consistently reached out to myself and others looking on ways he can give back, and I saw his drive bring him into service along with Wally and company to clean up and keep professorship over a part of the Writing Department. I am glad to see his drive bringing him here, and look forward to what else he will bring to the table. He and I have already been discussing some ways he can help enrich the experience of his fellow Clan mates. I have run into plenty of folks who ask how they can help, but he has been one of most consistent to follow up.

This is just one step down a much bigger path. I look forward with great anticipation about what else Jinius Griffin will bring to help better the Brotherhood as a whole. The sky is the limit. Congratulations as you arise as Knight Jinius Griffin!

Jinius has blazed through his time here at HSD! He has tore through the SA garnering multiple, multiple degrees. I personally have never seen a newcomer blow through the SA like that to earn so many degrees in their first months of training. Not only that he has entered multiple competitions and placed in all of them. He is always pleasant to interact with, excited to jump into comps and help the Clan and his House.

I am COMPLETELY on board with promoting Jinius to the rank of Knight. A rank fitting of him and more so, a rank well deserved!!!

I’ve known Jinius for ages, even before my Brotherhood time. When I first recruited Jinius, he was a little cagey, unsure of what to expect and not entirely sold on the description of the systems the DJB offers. When he finally did start, he bombarded me with questions and never really stopped. He figured out 99% of his promotion requirements by himself, then proceeded to go above and beyond.

More recently, I asked him what he thought of the systems behind the Brotherhood and he replied that he was fascinated, and loved systems like ACC. In fact, I think I’ve had to slow him down for his own good once or twice.

That said, I think Jinius will make a fine addition to the Brotherhood at large, and I hope I get to write many many more of these recommendations in the future. Congratulations Jinius, well-earned!
