Since he was last recognized following our Restoration clan event last summer, Eiko stepped up to make lasting contributions (again!) to Clan Plagueis. In the realms of both personal activity and leadership, Eiko has navigated a schedule that left his availability limited to still put up levels of accomplishment that most would be jealous of.
Shortly after Restoration, Eiko stepped into leadership: First as a Battleteam Leader, and then quickly into the role of Quaestor of House Karness Muur. He brought the perspective of the old days of House Revan to the table as well as years of experience, all of which made the transition from his long serving predecessor Callus Bo’Amar far smoother than we had expected when we were faced with the daunting prospect of finding a replacement. Eiko was able to not just maintain the success that Karness Muur had seen, he was able to build on it further. It’s no secret that Karness Muur had always been the “lesser” house in Plagueis, consistently finishing behind Ajunta Pall throughout the Dark Crusade, Fading Light, and Great Jedi War XI. This culminated in HKM being outscored 1048.3 to 1791.96 in last year’s Restoration event against Ajunta Pall. Eiko’s efforts over his tenure really lead to a renaissance for HKM, and it really showed during Between Dark and Light. HKM only trailed HAP by four total entries (54 - 58) and five more top-three placements than HAP (13 vs 8). This is the first time since the two houses were founded (originally as battle teams) where Karness Muur has ever outscored Ajunta Pall on any competitive metric, and without Eiko’s guidance none of that would have been possible. He never missed one report in the five months he served as Quaestor, making sure to keep all his members informed and engaged. He set up camp in our Telegram channel, passing out guidance to his charges (and those of Ajunta Pall for good measure) whenever he could. Even more importantly, he brought the idea for a clan-wide, ongoing run on (The Tides of Darkness) to the leadership and then worked diligently with his then-colleague Dracaryis to bring the event to fruition. This event has gone on to be one of the most popular activities in Plagueis, and Eiko has agreed to continue to ride herd on it even with his recent retirement from Quaestor.
Individually, Eiko has kept his competitive juices flowing. He has co-organized one while participating in seventeen, and he earned for crescents for his efforts (one ruby, two amethyst, and one sapphire). Four of his entries came during our recent clan feud with Odan-Urr where he made important contributions to our second place battleplan entry as well as earning a ninth place finish in the prologue puzzle. He also recruited a member to the Dark Brotherhood and, even though he didn’t join Plagueis (that filthy lightie!) we don’t hold that against Eiko, as attempts to grow the club as a whole are more important than Plagueian Hegemony.
In short, Eiko has been by far the best leader of Karness Muur that our unit has ever seen, and the entire leadership staff is happy that he’s going to stick around the place now that his tenure as Quaestor is completed. He’s done so much for our Clan over the past months that the mind boggles, but we hope that this award at least can show a portion of our gratitude.

Ah Eiko, my former Quaestor Battle Buddy! Team Dracpool and Eikoschach! There is so much that can be said about Eiko, and I'm glad that Slags went ahead and said most of it already. Eiko is one of the Clan's absolute best: he cares for his members, he works tirelessly to ensure they are provided with activity, and he does it all with a sense of quiet humility that only very seasoned leaders can execute. Under his leadership, House Karness Muur has thrived, both in activity and membership. He creates opportunities for his members through competitions, and one of the most successful clan-wide run-ons Plagueis has seen in an incredibly long time. Eiko always took the time to lend me his ear when I needed advice as Quaestor of House Ajunta Pall, and I can honestly say that without his help, I'd probably have (unintentionally) burned that place to the ground. He agreed with me that the "us vs. them" mentality that had existed between the two houses for so long needed to be eliminated, and was always willing to work with me for the betterment not just of his house, but for mine as well.
If this Clan (and the DB as a whole) was filled with leaders like Eiko, the club (and the world) would be a better place!
Congrats, Eiko. You have more than earned this!

Being the Aedile of a former Quaestor that has left such an impact on House Karness Muur and Clan Plagueis was a daunting task. However, thougg Eiko's personal life ate up more time than he would like, he made the transition for me as his second as smootg as possible.
Eiko leads by example, participating in events with vigour and a fun attitude, while also managing the administration of day-to-day House activities. From a passion for writing he created the Clan Run-On, and his passion for the Clan and wider Brotherhood as a whole brought out the best in members under his purview.
No real words can describe his impact on the House and Clan that hasn't been touched upon, so all I can say is well done, and thank you.
