I must have done something right in a past life to deserve a deputy like Alethia, aka Arch. His diligence, attention to detail and initiative are the stuff of legend. To say I rely on him as my Proconsul to help keep the Clan moving forward is an understatement. There is so much to a leadership position that doesn't readily jump off a dossier: the constant summit coordination, engaging with members, mediating conflict, hours spent bouncing ideas, late nights spent drafting member awards or event fictions and keeping the Consul focused and on schedule. Arch does all these things and more; he has been an essential part of the COU team both as Quaestor and Proconsul.
In addition to all the intangibles that are hard to quantify but make Arch an exceptional leader there is a body of project work he has completed during this time period which have provided cornerstones for the Clan's functioning. First, Arch prepared and regularly updates a Member guide for COU lore. This document has proven an invaluable resource for both new and returning COU members to get up to speed on everything that is happening in both COU and the larger brotherhood.
Second, he led and assembled the work product for our Armed Forces project which laid out the structure and initial purchase order for COU's armed forces following the release of possessions. Arch prepared two fully fleshed out courses of action for COU's armed forces with reasoning and tactics for each which gave me as the Consul options to choose or modify when plotting out the future of the Clan's military. The amount of research and care that went into this project is evident in the final product which became the core of the Odanite Expeditionary Force.
Most recently Arch worked with myself and the Clan Taldryan summit on the Desperate Measures coop event. Arch helped develop the plot and all 16 comps and graded four of the more labor intensive ones (poetry, coop fiction, run-on and solo fiction). He has proven himself more than capable of functioning at the Clan level and organizing multi-Clan events. I sleep well at night knowing if I got hit by a bus, Arch could keep COU moving forward without missing a beat.
In addition to his exceptional leadership record, Arch has a strong record as an individual member. He has organized 20 competitions and co-organized another 3. He has participated in 139 competitions (with an additional 14 container competitions) bringing home an impressive 70 Crescents. He was selected twice for the prestigious Seal of Loyalty. In that same period he has also collected 30 Clusters of Fire, 19 Clusters of Ice, 25 Clusters of Earth, 14 Clusters of Graphite.
Please accept this small token of our gratitude on behalf of Clan Odan-Urr and the entire brotherhood for everything you do.
