Major (Equite 1)
Requested by
Adept Seraine "Erinyes" Taldrya Ténama
Primary reason

Someone once called an EQ1 promotion "a test of continued activity past the Knight milestone", and Dasha "Jala" Talus has easily passed. First, numbers: Since her promotion to JM4 in June, Jala has participated in 29 competitions, including completing fifteen GJW XIV events across every bin. In early August, she was awarded a Dark Cross for her activity in the GJW. She also participated heavily in the Pro Bowl cross-Clan event in August.

Besides her competition activity, Jala has completed 11 Shadow Academy courses, earning two degrees in the process. She's also participated in a co-operative fiction with Appius (which you can read over on the Discourse forums), recently begun another with a different Ektrosis member, and has been a regular presence in Taldryan's Telegram chat (most often partnering up with Aylin to make trouble for Appius).

In light of her continued activity over the past almost-six months, I hereby nominate Dasha "Jala" Talus for promotion to Major. Congratulations!

Adept Seraine "Erinyes" Taldrya Ténama, 2020-12-23 20:32:37 UTC
Additional reasons

Dasha is one of those People that just encompasses what it means not just to be a member of Clan Taldryan, but a member of the Brotherhood.

Erinyes has already covered most of her achievements, so I'll go more in detail about her accomplishments from the perspective of her Quaestor and her Master.

Firstly, her activity. Taldryan's favourite little glitter bomb has not stopped since her promotion to Captain at the end of the last war. She's proven herself to be an active member of the House both in the Ektrosis House Chat, where she always maintains a presence, and continues this across the various DB channels.

She has participated in 29 different competitions and has written just shy of 7000 words! This gets even more impressive when you consider that she has just become a new mum not too long ago!

Dasha is always up for writing fiction, as evidenced by the run on she wrote with myself which as Erin said, can be viewed on discourse. She has also begun working on another fiction project with another member of the House which is currently under development.

As your Master, your Quaestor, and your friend, I am proud to recommend your promotion to EQ1! And I dread what you may do with this newfound power!

Congratulations, you earned it.

Requested by
Savant Appius "Zappius" Wight
Primary reason

I don't think I would be exaggerating when I say Jala is not only one of the most enthusiastic new members in Taldryan, but also in the club as a whole.

In the short space of time since her promotion, she has entered a total of 12 competitions. 11 of which were from the recent war where she earned herself her first Silver Nova which aided the Clan in earning fourth place overall!

On top of this, she has earned 1 Cluster of Fire and 21 Clusters of Ice. She has elevated her Inquisitorious rank to IV and passed two Shadow Academy courses. She has written 5542 words of Fiction and a further 1928 words in two run on posts.

Whilst not a requirement for an award, I would be remiss if I didn't mention her constant presence in the Tal chat, and as her Master, she is constantly keeping me on my toes with new ideas.

Congratulations Jala! I look forward to seeing what you do next!

What an enthusiastic member Jala is! She's constantly chatting up anyone and everyone, pitching Run-on and fiction ideas, and generally being the bubbly heart of the Clan. She has a dangerous side too which she showed to us by ticking off all Phase I and Phase II bins and submitting to 15 events! She didn't place in any individual events but her efforts in just getting the work done added up in its own way and we are supremely grateful for her part in helping the Clan snag its highest placing in years!
