Arden served as my first Right Hand of Justice and proved himself to be capable and reliable in that role. He carefully considered all issues that I presented to the Chamber for discussion and provided useful advice. We did not always agree, but his arguments always helped me craft and improve my decisions.
During his tenure the Chamber issued two public decisions, both of which he contributed to in material ways. He also spent considerable time and effort on matters that did not result in public decisions - the nature of the Chamber's work means that many of the issues it investigates and considers are never publicly revealed.
Arden was a major factor in the smooth transition from Jac to myself as Justicar, and I am very happy to lend him my recommendation.

It has been a long time coming, but I am so happy to be writing this recommendation for Arden Karn di Plagia. Arden has been a constant presence in Plagueis, serving as its Consul for over a year in 2019 and continuing to contribute to the clan’s activity, structure, lore, and competitions.
During his tenure as Consul, Arden led, co-led, and supervised a number of events for Plagueis, including the third Pro Bowl with Clans Taldryan and Scholae Palatinae, the Song of Discord run-on, Mysteries of Aliso, Operation: Antiquity, and Vacation on Mustafar. He was Consul when Plagueis got a 4th place finish for the Rite of Supremacy: Meridian, and appeared on multiple episodes of the PlagCast as a regular. During and since his Consul tenure, he has worked to update the fleets and possessions of Plagueis and maintains a consistent presence on Telegram as a mentor and master of various apprentices.
In terms of participation, Arden delivers hardily. Since his last recognition, he has organized or co-organized 40 competitions, but he has also participated in 94. He completed all the bins for both the Thirteenth Great Jedi War and the Fourteenth Great Jedi War, earning himself a slew of awards in the process: Two Gold Novae, one Silver Nova, one Bronze Nova, one Crescent with a Ruby Star, four Crescents with Amethyst Stars, one Crescent with a Sapphire Star, two Crescents with Emerald Stars, nine Pendants of Blood, 407 Clusters of Fire, 33 Clusters of Ice, 25 Seals of Graphite, a Seal of Loyalty, thirteen Seals of Fury, 16 Seals of Discord, and eleven Seals of Vision (that’s a lot of seals for a seal-adoring guy). He is known for his Great Jedi War: The Movie competitions as well, providing a creative outlet for members following the vendettas. He has assisted the clan in winning the run-on event in the wars twice in a row, collaborating and bringing fresh ideas to the table every time.
Most recently, Arden helmed and co-organized the fourth Pro Bowl with Plagueis, Naga Sadow, and Taldryan, judging a week of his own comps while also helping two new organizers with their own weeks of competitions. The Pro Bowl raked in 745 overall submissions, an astonishing number given the size of the three clans’ rosters. Arden made sure he had news posts ready to go, frequently checked in with teams, and assisted the team captains in order to make sure that all the event rules were followed. He wasn’t just an organizer with the Pro Bowl: He was the head mentor and leader of it.
As a former second to Arden and a friend, I am honored to recommend an Amethyst Kukri for him. He has demonstrated, time and time again, his ability to both be active and be a role model for newer members and older members alike. His strengths lie in his ability to organize and collaborate, creating successful interclan events and working diligently with other clan leaders to help them get the job done. In a time when it’s easy to isolate within one’s own unit, it is refreshing to have Plagueis constantly reach out to and have fun with other clans in events and storylines.
Congratulations, Arden, and thank you.
