Anima returned from the Rogues in the latter half of February. Since then, he has set a brilliant example for Naga Sadow, participating in a total of 24 competitions. These include all nine of the competitions in the Proving Grounds event, as well as all 12 in the Red Fury event with CSP. 100% in two major Clan events sets the bar high for other leaders and members of the Clan.
In addition, Anima has been Rollmaster for the past two months. During this time, he has revamped and increased visibility on the Clan's Master-Student Program. He has done this by creating a form that makes it easier to pair masters with students and also by frequently talking about the program in his reports and in regular chat with the Clan on IRC, email, and Telegram. He also began a "member interview" section for his Rollmaster reports, which allows him to channel the experiences and knowledge of old members to Journeymen of the Clan more easily, by going over their experiences in an interview format. In addition to his typical Rollmaster duties, Anima also took the initiative to rally members of the Clan in their participation in the Red Fury event. As one of the highest ranked Summit members who was not involved in planning the event, he reached out to members of CSP to help coordinate groups for the Runon. He also frequently touted his own participation and encouraged others of CNS to do the competitions for the event.
Finally, Anima organized ten competitions during this time period. This includes helping to run the "What Lies Beneath" event in House Shar Dakhan in April, which he began planning with the House Summit while he was a BTL in March. While he only served in this role for 26 days, he was an integral part of planning the event, and followed through to help run it even after becoming Rollmaster.
On the side, Anima has led a Clan initiative to improve our Clan's participation in the ACC. In addition to participating in at least four duels himself, he has consistently mentored the Clan's journeymen to improve their confidence and skills in the ACC, which has resulted in a surge of activity in that area.
Overall, as an exemplary member and Summit member who has accomplished a lot in a short amount of time, I would like to recommend this Grand Cross for Anima....even if he does like the color red a little too much.

Atra, or Anima as he is now going by, has been a godsend to the ACC. Not wasting anytime after returning from a stint in the rogues, Anima jumped right into the fray with familiarizing himself quickly with the new CS system and the new ACC. After a few long discussions, I knew right away he was the type of person I wanted on my team. Looking back over the past 3 months, I can say that I made the right call.
During his time as a Judge for the ACC, Anima was one of the first new hires to complete his two test-judgments (wherein a Judge would grade a match, and I would then go through their judgement and offer notes and feedback). He didn't skip a beat and went right in to grading another 7 matches total. I should note that grading an ACC match is no easy task. It requires breaking down both characters sheets, carefully reading the fight for both detail and content, on top of making sure to leave real time feedback and commentary for members to learn and grow as writers and competitors. Some matches can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to grade. Regardless, Anima is always quick to jump on a match, and there were times where I had to even ask him to hold back to give some of the other Judges an opportunity.
On top of grading matches, ACC Judges are responsible for grading the ACC Qualification Exam. These also can require a lot of time and patience, as we are often helping new members understand the intricacies of the ACC. To date, Anima has graded 5 Qualifications putting him again at the top among his peers.
Aside from the statistics, Anima is a very selfless member in this organization. I see him helping members of not just his unit, but others, when they have ACC inquiries, or just general talk about Star Wars weapons or fighting styles. He is friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable and he uses these to share and educate others on a daily basis.
For his selfless dedication to the brotherhood by way of volonteering to help with the ACC, I'm beyond pleased to recommenced Anima for a Grand Cross of the Darkside.
Keep up the great work, Brosiedon <3

Anima, or Atra to the rest of us in the Naga Sadow family, is a keystone member to the summit that Locke and Cethgus have collaborated and constructed. When I first came to office, Anima stepped in and helped bring activity up by co-organising nine other competitions with myself and Inarya. He is always there for us by giving sound advice on fiction, on leadership and with tasks like reports. To me, the Clan wouldn’t work the same without this badass Sith and I for one am truly grateful to have met him. Congratulations Anima!

I have had the pleasure of working with Anima in many different roles, when I first came to Naga Sadow. He was incredibly welcoming and helpful in whatever way he could be. When I took on the role of Aedile he moved to Battle Team Leader working closely with both myself and Lexic in getting our head round our new roles. His help in this time was invaluable. In his time serving as Battle Team Leader he completely rework Devil’s Shoard building a better and stronger team. Since getting the position on Rollmaster he was proved to be an esset to the Clan being the first line of contact with all of the new members. His help with the execution and organisation of the House Shar Dakhan was invaluable.

I am honoured to be giving Anima this Grand Cross of the Dark Side for his devotion and work inside of the Brotherhood and Clan Naga Sadow. Anima contuines to work hard and bring activity and progress to Clan Naga Sadow, helping the expansion and development that has been taking place recently.
Anima has been a guy who time and time again steps up to the challange, throwing himself fully into helping the Clan. When myself and Locke took on the roles we are today, we needed people to jump in and give everything they had to improving things, Anima was one of these members that we got. He instantly stepped up as a Battleteam Leader, assisting in bringing a certain ammount of stability to the team, as well as bringing new members of House Shar Dakhan into the team to help them expand there experiance inside of the Brotherhood and Clan.
From here he once more stepped up when the Clan required it off him. Helping to progress the newer members of the Brotherhood, showing them the time and patience expected of a Clan Rollmaster. Since assuming the role of Rollmaster, he has managed to help journeymen turn into Dark Jedi Knights, helping watch them develope and of course point them in the right direction and set out there progression, aiming to suit it to there own needs and what they prefer to participate in. Building a bond with the journeymen ad contuining to keep in touch one they reach the final rank of Journeymen.
Anima has contuined to be involved in clan projects, taking the time to help with anything, from keeping activity up on IRC. As well as making sure that he keeps up with reports, and competitions something that is expected of every leader but we never take the time to stop and thank them for. Well now is that chance for all of his hard work and effort that he has been. Stepping up for the betterment of the Brotherhood is something that every member should try and do, putting the club first and going that extra mile is something Anima contuines to do.
Congratulations on this Grand Cross of the Dark Side Anima, you keep working hard and I appriciate all the effort and time that you have put into helping the members of Clan Naga Sadow. Keep up the hard work and I look forward to working with you in the Future. Thank you for everything Anima.

I don’t have a Deputy CM, but if I did, the job would belong to Atra. Atra is my right hand and go to for the ACC. He has not just spent time grading, but also listening to the things I say, the reports I write, and even the judgements I make. If I had to step down right now, I’d feel confident knowing Atra was there. Period.
Since his let merit of recognition (Sapphire Blade), Atra has spent the last 3 months in his joint roll as ACC Judge and Praetor to the Voice. I mention this only to highlight how impactful his energy is to the ACC among everything else he does for the CM/Voice teams.
As a Judge during this time period, Atra has judged 9 matches and 5 Qualification exams. Atra was also a proof reader and consultant on the new Martial Arts form wikipedia page. He has posted 3 newspost to help spread knowledge about the Character Sheets and changes to them, and is the leading force for getting new Species added to the system. Atra also goes through the system on the backend and fixes typos or coding syntax errors as he sees them. He does this without being told and on his own initiative, making him an invaluable centerpiece to the Voice and Combat Master teams.
As a member, Atra leads by example and has completed 14 courses and earned 3 Degrees. He's earned 101 Clusters of Fire, 12 Cluster's of Ice, and 2 Scrolls of the Master.
Pretty awesome accomplishments for a 3 month time period. That's just the kind of leader and member Atra is. This is a starting point for more things to come, and I am confident I will be writing up another recommendation for Atra in due team.

Atra has continued to keep his eyes on the members for the past 3 months as Praetors, handling a bulk of incoming Character Sheet requests, while also helping to finalize and announce several new Species added at member's requests. He has reviewed some policies that have been launched and helped advertise and grade as a co-organizer on a DJB wide competition based on the ongoing plot updates that saw incredible participation across the brotherhood. There are so many countless projects he's active in that I can't even mention because they aren't done yet, but I wholly support this medal because he has definitely had an impact on the entire Brotherhood in his role as Praetor to the Voice in the time frame that Wally is awarding. Congratulations Atra, you do great work!
