Primary reason

Medal Request: Grand Cross<br> Thran Occasus (5101)<br> <br> It is my honor to recommend Sith Warrior Thran Occasus for the high honor of a Grand Cross of the Dark Side. It is an award reserved for those whom have shown exceptional ability in areas meant to encourage competition, interaction and mentorship within one's Clan - a task that Thran has fulfilled in earnest.<br> <br> Thran's personal activity acts as a role model for the other members in the Clan. Over the past six months he has accumulated 2 Legions of the Scholar, Clusters of Fire, Crescents (Emerald and Sapphire), 3 Seals of Duplicity, a Dark Cross and a Gold Nova. He also, int the given time, completed several Shadow Academy Courses: Training Saber Basics, Alchemy Basics, Dark Jedi Meditation and AOL Instant Messenger. His alternate activity has also included 5 ACC matches (one which was against myself) tallying a total of 3 wins and 2 losses. Combine this with his flawless IRC presence and his attendance to 4 Clan Conclaves (Meetings that are held weekly to give direction/input on the Clan's future) has been most beneficial. <br> <br> Yet personal achievement alone is not enough for this high honor. Thran has proven himself a capable leader in that time by utilizing his skills as the BTL of Souls of Darkness & Draco Conspicari, Aedile of House Exar Kun (And BTL of Blades of Kun), Rollmaster of House Acclivis Draco and Envoy of House Acclivis Draco.In that time he has stimulated competition by hosting/creating trivia competitions, creating Fiction Competitions (including 8 of which were part of a BT vs. BT competition held in HEK), stimulating discussion in his BT via e-mail, reporting bi-weekly (covering member activity, BT direction and insight). This has also included the intangible task of acting as a Conflict Mediator within CSP... several times Thran has spent hours between two members in conflict, helping them find common ground and overcome their differences for the betterment of the Clan. Additionally, he has played a vital role in the mentorship of new leaders such as DJK Rasilvenaira - using his experience and knowledge to mold a future generation of leaders by imparting his wisdom on personal conduct, providing positive feedback/critique, developing competitions, developing direction and House identity and so much more.<br> <br> However, his accomplishments do not end there. Thran has recently undertook a large project known as the Clan Menagerie. As Scholae Palatinae is a Clan based around their affinity with animals, Thran took it upon himself to create a document that details this affinity; taking it one step further, he created a menagerie to hold the beast of CSP. This document is 15 pages (11 pt font) in length and details a host of animals (including bios, statistics, images and fictional data) that are available for members of CSP to utilize in clan and personal fiction. He established the idea to provide a 'base line' of knowledge for Clan run-ons to further increase continuity, realism and encourage the liberal use of the lesser known aspect of Scholae Palatiane.<br> <br> For these achievements, we honor Thran Occasus with this Grand Cross of the Dark Side.<br> <br> Braecen Kunar<br> Consul of Scholae Palatinae
