Primary reason

Vanguard Turel Sorenn is one of the best members and leaders within the Dark Brotherhood. His activity is second to none and his achievements on the Odan Urr leadership team have been outstanding. Beyond the statistics of organizing of organizing 29 competitions, co-organizing 4 competitions, running a Clan Feud, and participating in over 96 competitions; Turel has created an environment within COU that has fostered friendship and a desire to improve the Dark Brotherhood. The truly successful leadership teams in the DJB unite their members and build a sense of community/family that drives our club towards the future and keeps our members returning. The secret to the DJB's success is not bringing members back to earn crescents, but rather bringing members back to hang out with their friends. Turel has fostered this within his Clan and it has been a pleasure to watch COU grow from the little house that could to one of our powerhouse Clans.

It is a true oversight on my part that Turel has yet to earn a Sacramental award in his career and I am honored to finally be the one to ensure he has received his first.

Congrats on your SB!

Primary reason

The Dark Jedi Brotherhood has many unique "clubs" of people within it, but very few people ever enter the Club known as Double Stabby. This is a special group of members who have earned not one, but two types of Sacramental Awards (that have pointy ends). Today, we welcome Warlord Rajhin, aka Turel, into that club.

Since Rajhin's last recognition (June 2019), he has contributed to the Dark Jedi Brotherhood as the Left Hand of Justice for a period of 9 months, as an ACC Judge for a period of 3 months, and as a integral part of the Clan Vizsla creation team that saw the first new Clan added to the Dark Brotherhood in nearly a decade. In these roles he brought his usual level of professionalism and attention to detail that improved the Office of the Justicar (Bubba REC attached), the ACC Team (he did such a good job he is now the CM - graded matches and contributed to the new rubric), and Clan Vizsla (got us Clanned!).

In addition to Rajhin's contributions as a leader to our club as a whole, he has also been a dedicated participant across all avenues of the DJB's activity spectrum. He has participated in 99 total gaming events, submitted over 3800 words of fiction, taken 10 SA courses, earned 4 Degrees, earned a Bronze Nova in a Vendetta, placed and earned 11 various Crescents, accumulated 783 CFs, 10 CIs, 46 CEs, 14 Clusters of Graphite, 4 Scrolls of Foundation, and 13 Seals from the last war.

Turel (I can't ever spell your new name right), congrats on the second SB! I look forward to seeing you improve the ACC and lead it into the future!

Additional reasons

Turel brings wisdom, passion, and experience in equal measure to his work as Left Hand of Justice. In the first half of his current term, he cogently advised multiple members on their rights under the Covenant and helped them to explain and defend their actions in ways that, without a doubt, led to reduced sentences or avoided charges. He is in many ways the ideal Left Hand: he harbors deep convictions about members' rights and has personally and publicly grappled with his own past transgressions, which lends his advice a frank and persuasive quality.

I rely on Turel for careful, thoughtful analysis, and I know that I can trust him to challenge my opinions in ways that will force me to improve or reconsider my views. Turel has advised on every major issue presented to the Chamber, including one case that went all the way through trial. He also played a key role in the Chamber's review of a clan's request to ban a disruptive member, advising the member and submitting a defense brief for the member on very short notice. Many other matters have been resolved informally, but Turel approached them all with the same care and professionalism.

I am proud to add my recommendation for Turel today.
