Savant Janus Stormwind
Sapphire Blade
Requested by

Primary reason

Janus Stormwind is most strongly recommended for his first Sapphire Blade. Janus is simply put, an exemplar within Clan Odan-Urr and the backbone of the unit. In terms of participation the numbers are staggering. Since his last merit award Janus has participated in 119 competitions, and organized 1. He has taken part in 4 PVP activities and 2 ACC matches. He wrote 6504 words of fiction and passed 4 SA courses. A prolific commenter, he has written 30 comments on news posts. For his efforts, he has earned a staggering array of 47 Crescents, 19 COI, 12 COF, 10 COE, 85 COG, 1 SOI, and 11 SOW.

Now, those are just metrics and are not what truly makes Janus shine, however staggering and impressive those plaudits may be. Janus is the embodiment of the strong and silent type. No politics, no drama, never a bad word from Janus. He is active in email traffic and Telegram and is a guiding force within Satele Shan specifically, but the Clan as a whole.

Furthermore, Janus truly is the ideal Odanite. Every event, no matter at the House, Clan, or DJB wide Janus ALWAYS steps up to help his unit and participates in nearly every event. Not for glory, not for personal gain, but for a true and ardent desire to help others and not let his team down. Janus is an example of a member that goes unsung, tragically, because he simply causes no waves while helping to steer the ship of leadership. Every tasking asked, every undertaking, every single thing he can do for us he has done without hesitation. Janus is a pillar of the Clan and has been so for years. This award is long in the making and is utterly well deserved.

Additional reasons

Janus isn't a showboater, so it's easy to overlook the full breadth of his activity. And that's a shame, because it's staggering. Look at those numbers again. 120 comp participations in an award rec is crazy, even moreso when to stop to appreciate that those were 120 times when someone, maybe a unit leader or just another member, asked to see what their fellow members could do. And 120 times, Janus showed up. Art competitions, in particular, tend to languish without many submissions, so I personally delighted every time I see a member like Janus submit to one, especially when to entry shows the level of thought and effort that he puts into his work.

Janus, I don't know why you came over to Odan-Urr, but we're very happy to have you here and I hope we'll provide you with a wonderful home for many years to come. Keep up the excellent work!
