Primary reason

Over the past 15 months since his last recognition, Silent has continued to demonstrate that he is a key contributor to Clan Plagueis. He is always there when his fellow clan mates call on him, as both a dynamo of activity and a peer leader offering encouragement and motivation to his comrades. He has been especially active during our Clan wide events, always acquitting himself well while generating consistently high numbers of entries.

During our Winter Trials event last December, he entered 11 of the 25 available competitions. Following that during our March/April event The Enemy Below, he entered 24 of 24 possible competitions while placing first in 2 and third in 1 of them. His 168 total points earned were good for a seventh place finish overall. Then, during our Wargame event he participated in 9 of 10 possible competitions, earned two first place and two third place finishes with his entries, and took fourth place overall in the competition. Finally, in the second annual Pro Bowl event that Plagueis just completed with Clan Taldryan, Silent submitted entries to 25 of 25 total competitions, earned 168 total points, and finished a respectable 11th overall between the two Clan's combined rosters. All told, Silent has entered 69 of a possible 84 possible competitions across all of Plagueis's Clan wide or multi-clan feud events over the past year. When things matter the most, Silent is always there with his efforts.

All told since his last award, Silent has put up some very impressive numbers overall. When it comes to competitions, he has entered 149 competitions and 11 container competitions. He has amassed 21 total crescents: 2 Ruby, 5 Amethyst, 8 Sapphire, and 6 Emerald. He has completed 24 fiction activities (and 6,816 words of fiction) and an ACC match to earn a total of 23 Clusters of Ice. As a gamer, he has reported 31 PvP matches and 1 PvE activity, earned 141 Clusters of Fire and 47 Clusters of Earth, and secured a PvP score Pendant of Blood. He has also secured 11 Clusters of Graphite for his graphics entries over that time. Heck, even as a member with a tenure longer than some of our members time on this earth, he even completed a Shadow Academy course.

More than just his general activity, Silent has added things that are less tangible to the Plagueis community. During our events, he's always been a tireless cheerleader in the Clan Telegram channel, extolling the other members of Plagueis to throw themselves into the event just as much as he is. An excellent sportsman, he is always quick to congratulate the victors and promise them just as tough a fight the next time around. His positive comments on Clan and House reports are also a positive contribution toward the environment that Plagueis fosters. He has even worked tirelessly with Clan members, both past and present, on self improvement in his interactions with his fellow Plagueis. This is a journey I myself have walked, and always want to offer positive recognition as others make that same trek.

This sacramental award is well earned and highly deserved. Plagueis would not be the Clan it is today without the tireless contributions of Silent over the years, especially over the last 15 months. It is my hope that this first sacramental is a stepping stone to bigger and better things in the future for Silent, and hope that is my privilege as Consul to write the recommendations for his advancement into that future.

Thank you for everything that you have given.

Additional reasons

From the moment I joined the Brotherhood, Silent was a name I not only saw, but saw frequently. With an infectious attitude, Silent is always encouraging others to be active and to strive for their absolute best.

Not only does Silent preach but he also practices. If he encourages you to participate in an event or competition you can guarantee he’ll be there as well, this was evident during the Plagueis/Taldryan Pro Bowl where Silent competed in every single competition. Ever the team player, I am honoured to be a member of the same Clan as Silent.

Good work and congratulations!

I've had the pleasure of working with Silent since the day I joined Clan Plagueis many years ago. There are times when I've been his subordinate, and there was a time when I was his consul. During my tenure as consul of Plagueis, Silent was, and still is, a stalwart of activity. The most recent example of this is the Plagueis/Taldryan Pro Bowl that I helped organize and run. During that event, Silent went 100% across the entire event. That is a common theme with Silent from the time I was consul until now: he is always participating in events, giving it his all, and encouraging others to do the same. Through his body of work over the past year plus he has shown why he is a member worthy of a Sapphire Blade by his extensive activity, interaction within the clan, and encouragement of other (and new!) members. Congratulations, Silent! Very well earned!

When the Plagueis-Taldryan Pro Bowl results were first posted, it was no surprise to find Silent was the first person in Telegram to pass along his sincere and heartfelt congratulations and encouragement to all the other members who participated.

This genuine attitude of support for the membership has been an absolutely fantastic addition to the Clan, and even the Club as a whole. But like many of the great leaders of this Club attempt to teach, Silent doesn't just encourage. No, Silent performs to the best of his ability, leading the way by example as a shining beacon for other members to look up to.

Silent, your hard work, your ability to have fun, and your team-centered attitude have all played a vital role to getting you here. You continue to develop into a mature, well-rounded, and continuously active member day in and day out. Keep up the amazing work and the positive mentality, and I know there will be more great things to come.

Congratulations, Silent. Fantastic job.

From being his Quaestor, I have been given the chance to see what Silent does for Plagueis. To call him a cheerleader is accurate, but there's also more to him than that. He does what he asks of others and is the first to ask a question should one come into his mind and as a Quaestor, that's what I like to see.

Good job Silent, you earned it!

Silent is a well known quantity in Plagueis. When you organize an event, Silent is there. When you want help promoting an event? Silent is there. When you need help with completing an event? Silent is there.

What more do you ask from a member with as long a tenure as Silent? Nothing.

This is a well earned reward that properly recognizes Silent's many contributions to Plagueis in terms of activity, peer interaction, and overall reputation. He's a good guy who gives his all and works hard for the benefit of others, leading by example.

Well Done!
