Savant (Equite 2)
Requested by
Adept Seraine "Erinyes" Taldrya Ténama
Primary reason

As Xolarin only recently transferred to Taldryan, I've asked the CNS Summit to contribute to this recommendation. However, the data from Xolarin's activity assessment and his service as Magistrate to the Regent (as noted in both Atra's activity assessment comment and Zxyl's contribution to this request) should be more than enough to justify Xolarin's promotion to Equite 2.

First, some stats: since his last recognition (a Steel Cross in December of 2018), Xolarin has participated in 79 competitions, including 15 events from GJW XIII (one of which earned him a Silver Nova) and 10 events from GJW XIV. Besides the Silver Nova, he's earned two Crescents with Amethyst Stars, four Crescents with Sapphire Stars, and five Crescents with Emerald Stars. He's also fought in four completed ACC battles since the beginning of 2020. Overall, Xolarin's activities have earned him 32 Clusters of Ice and 43 Clusters of Graphite. He's also been a regular attendee at the Shadow Academy, completing 17 courses for a total of 5 degrees.

On the leadership front, Xolarin served as the Aedile of House Marka Ragnos from January 29, 2019 (shortly after his last recognition) to March 2, 2020, and as Quaestor of that same House from March to July of 2020. I'll leave it to Bentre to fill in more details of how well Xolarin handled those positions, but Xolarin's activity assessment says he ran 14 competitions in that time, averaging roughly one a month during his tenure (accounting for the competition bans during GJWs XIII and XIV).

Xolarin also served as the Magistrate to the Regent from November 1, 2019 to May 1, 2020. An activity note Atra left during that time states that, "Xolarin was an active participant in Regent Staff discussions and helped to maintain the approval queue. At the same time, he participated in proofing and item creation for the Solo-Resistance release package." I'll let Zxyl provide more information on exactly what that entailed.

All in all, I think Xolarin's consistent activity as a member, his contributions to the Regent's office, and his eighteen months of Summit service in Clan Naga Sadow since his last recognition are a solid justification for promoting him to Equite 2.

Additional reasons

Xolarin is a member of Clan Naga Sadow that will be much missed as he had chosen to move on. The gent was by and large a pretty agreeable chap, besides being effective in both roles he held while in CNS. In the months before being placed into stewardship over House Marka Ragnos as her Quaestor, he served an extended and successful term as Aedile. He worked with Muz Ashen to ensure the successful operation of the House, in addition to having acted to curate and update the much-loved "Sticker Hype Pack" which has served to help spur member activity and engagement.

As a Quaestor, Xolarin engaged in lengthy discussion with the members of the upper Summit on a variety of subjects toward the betterment of both his House and the Clan at large. These discussions have included the logistics of fictional assets, the further fictional development of Clan Naga Sadow, provided feedback pertaining to crucial upcoming plot points for both HMR and CNS, and helped to brainstorm how to better serve the membership as a whole. More than just discussing, Xolarin also worked to ensure his members' regular activity was recognized, helped to ensure his members were awarded properly following events, and worked to encourage further personal excellence in our membership.

One notable way he did this was in recognizing members as Scions of Ragnos. These people were those who presented a good face to the Clan and club, as "key members of the HMR/CNS community, and are a good example to newcomers and long-timers alike." He wanted to recognize our members for their activity and the use of an in character House-bestowed title was one way that he tried to accomplish that end. Furthermore, in his position as Quaestor he immediately had jumped on the ball trying to formulate new ways that we could better engage new members. Some of the enjoyable competition mini-series he created or contributed included the inter-House "Orian Wargames", "Scrounging the Leftovers" and "Return to Tarthos"- the last of which followed the Clan's return to the Orian system. I would also be remiss if I didn't point out the fact that Xolarin used fiction in reports to further enrich his members' experience. He made a point of doing so.

Really, this is all just a small sampling of the work that Xolarin accomplished while a part of our Clan. Speaking with his second in command, Xolarin was as available for questions or discussion for his Aedile was he was with regard to the Upper Summit, and discussed his ideas for his House freely with his Aedile. This further reinforces the clear that Xolarin was an effective leader. He displayed excitement for the Great Jedi War, discussed plans for the future, and demonstrated a clear desire to build his unit.

Xolarin was a good Quaestor, is a good guy, and I am certain will make an excellent addition to the next tier of the Equite ranks. Congratulations Xolarin, and I wish you the best wherever your path takes you.

Erinyes has already spoken to the "stats" and raw numbers of Xolarin's activity and efforts, so I'll take this opportunity to elaborate a little about my personal and professional experience with Xolarin's service to the Regent Staff during our shared time there, expanding in detail on Atra's notes.

Immediately upon joining the Regent team Xolarin hit the ground running, and I firmly believed he was going to give me a run for my money for Praetor. He took little to no time to learn the policies and procedures regarding the team's very specific aspect approval guidelines, handling approval and denials that came into the queue the entirety of his tenure without hesitation. He was quick to grasp the policies and procedures of conduct we employ on the staff.

Xolarin was always available and up for participation in Regent staff discussions, offering valuable input that to this day has an effect on an ongoing project. He was always courteous, and it was enjoyable working alongside him. During our first content drop as a team (the "Solo-Resistance" release package) Xolarin acted first as our peer reviewer, looking over the content created by the previous staff and finishing touches employed by our new team. He also assisted Atra in the content update itself in creating the necessary item prototypes during launch, ensuring quick delivery to the membership and a short maintenance window.

Prior to the completion of his tenure on the staff, Xolarin began working on a very large Clan-focused project. He laid much of the initial groundwork for what I consider will be a major and defining project for Atra's tenure, completing research on new item archetypes and categories as well as actual item research in relation to the project. It was an absolute pleasure on both a personal and professional level working alongside Xolarin on the staff, so much so that I hope he ends up applying for Magistrate again in a later rotation so we can work together again.

This, coupled with the raw data presented by Erinyes and his time as a Summit member in Naga Sadow as detailed by Bentre, I feel is more than enough to warrant his promotion to Equite 2 given he has received no formal recognition since 2018.

Congratulations on your promotion Xolarin, and keep up the great work. It's well earned.
