The Golden Lightsaber has only been awarded thirteen times in the history of the Dark Brotherhood. Only eleven members have received this honor and eight of them have been Grand Masters. The three members who were not Grand Masters; James Lucius Entar, Keirdagh Taldrya Cantor, and Kir Taldrya Katarn all served on the Dark Council and provided our club with Grand Master-like contributions. Today, I am honored to award another member of the Dark Brotherhood with the Golden Lightsaber and welcome him to one of the most exclusive club's in the DJB.
Prophet Telaris "Mav" Cantor is our Deputy Grand Master, but he enjoys near parallel Grand Master decision making authority and is a Grand Master in all but rank. Mav has earned this authority through countless years of dedication to the Dark Brotherhood, through countless hours of counsel to multiple Grand Masters, and through his steadfast work to improve our member's experiences.
Mav's role as our Deputy Grand Master is that of a co-leader. I do not make decisions without his advice and often I trust him to make decisions without me. This has brought on a period of stability, creativity, and growth in our club's systems and processes that have not been seen in years. Just take a look at our website, our club, and compare it to two years ago. Old systems have been vanquished and outdated clutter has been swept away. In its place has come possessions, new character sheets, new ACC rules, new orders, a new member join experience, and a host of other projects that are too numerous to name (and remember!). These new systems and projects are all a result of Mav's work, effort, and vision. He has either had a guiding hand or has been the lead on each of them and his efforts have fundamentally changed our club.
I am extremely fortunate to have Mav as my co-leader and it is my honor to award him our club's highest honor.
