Medal Request: Grand Cross
Since his promotion to Prelate, Lucius has been awarded countless CFs, a Pendant of Blood, an Amethyst Crescent, five Seals of Dominance as well as four Seals of Darkness. This is his standard take for his gaming presence, something that hasnt wavered since the start of his Scholae Palatinae membership. He also held the position of Gaming Tribune, ensuring timely awards for all participants and keeping the servers up and running for gaming nights.
The part that not that many people know is his recently acquired ACC ability. Lucius earned yet another Seal of Darkness, this one for his participation in the ACC portion of the Rite of Supremacy. A goodly number of people have discouraged Luc from ACC, citing his writing ability as mediocre at best, but he tried anyway. His goal to compete in the event, to give Scholae more points, and to prove the people that said he couldnt write, wrong. That is exactly what he did - he walked out with a 7-1 record, earning Scholae 22 points in the process.
Lucius is also Master to Leonidas Yadar Mandalore, mentoring him from Acolyte to Guardian, helping him with Jedi Academy, Shadow Academy exams, encouraging him to take part in competitions, general DB conduct and more. They are an odd pairing, but a very good one as Luc is able to impart his knowledge onto his Apprentice and mould him into a very productive member of CSP.
A Grand Cross is awarded for activity over time, for a keen understanding of a position, and in both these areas Lucius excelled - as gaming tribune, as Master for his Student, as a member of the Brotherhood that takes part in as many competitions as he can, for his gaming presence all these effort combining to make him a worthy recipient of the award.
Knight Class Envoy of Scholae Palatinae
Clan Scholae Palatinae recently attained the honor of Second Clan in the Brotherhood Vendetta "Rites of Supremacy: Second Darkness" compiling 330 Clan points - outstripping four rival Clans to affirm their right as an Elite Clan. For contributions, participation and tenacity to ensure the Clan's wartime efforts... I recognize Lucius's effort. Compiling 198 individual points in the MP Gaming & ACC Events and taking the rank of 10th Overall in the Vendetta.
Additionally, the popularity and success of CSP JA Training Nights could have never prospered without Dark Summit influence and suggestions. It was Lucius that came to me and proposed the idea that individuals be awarded for their participation - at the Moderators discretion - for their time spent learning to become more efficient gamers. This subtle nudge not only drove the activity level of the event, but gave visible activity that helped spur the development of a new generation of new, gaming members in the Clan.
Combine this with his recent, newfound innovations as a Senator of Scholae Palatinae to take my previous proposal "Merit Noble System" and completely revamp it to reflect a whole new facet: Clan Credits. With these credits, members would be rewarded for their expertise, while Merit would be reflected for participation, giving members a brand new Point of View on character development in CSP.
For the sum total of his contributions in the Clan Feud, the Rites of Supremacy, developmental work as Tribune and ingenuity to improve his Clan... I recommend Lucius for a Grand Cross of the Dark Side.
