Primary reason

Bale Andros, aks Cyris, has, over his two terms on my staff, made himself an indispensable part of the Herald's office in both his artistic and leadership contributions. He has completed work that has exceeded expectations in both quantity and quality repeatedly, setting new standards for what a Praetor to the Herald can be expected to do.

In the area of artistic contributions he has created a host of images that have been some of the most popular amongst the membership (if the number in use across all member dossiers can be used as a measuring stick) of any that have come out of the Herald's office during my tenure. He has completed four unique robe designs for the recurring selector releases totalling 78 images and a further two unique robe designs for the Great Jedi War reward releases totalling 30 more. He has also created a further two custom robes in response to member requests, taking some of the most complicated requests and turning around spectacular results. Additionally, he created two custom weapon designs to serve as Great Jedi War rewards (one created by himself and the other created from concept work originally done by Kano), for an additional 10 images. Beyond that, he also stepped in to pick up the slack in warbanner creation and completed two warbanners from member requests. Given the level of quality he imparts into his graphics work, I would be hard pressed to find anyone that has put as much time and effort into their work while serving on the Herald staff.

More important than his wide-ranging contributions of artwork has been his work as a leader in the Herald's office. I'm usually not one to highlight real life hardships to justify a member's rewards, but in this case the hardships were mine and it was Bale that stepped up to fill the need. At the end of October 2019 as a result of the fires in northern California I was forced to step back from my active day to day ability to run the office and the staff with little or no notice due to evacuations and changes to my living situation that resulted. Bale had served as Praetor for about a month at this point, and Xen had just recently moved on from the staff to assume the position of Voice. Bale, in essence, took up the workload of being Herald for the better part of two months: He managed the staff, handled assignments for member requests and our Rise of Skywalker/Mandalorian/Fallen Order release, and also stepped in as an instructor to help newer staff navigate the warbanner request and file system. He created graphics to support the Brotherhood's Mandalorian event to ensure that our club could package the competition in an attractive and engaging way for the members. It was through his expertise and dedication that services from the Herald's office were able to continue without pause or delay, something that many other newly appointed Praetors would not have been able to accomplish with such aplomb.

Bale has created 120 images for use by the Brotherhood's membership. He has stepped in to the acting Herald role when the Herald had to step away literally in the middle of the night. His efforts on my staff, coupled with the work he has done as a member outside of the walls of the Herald's office, stand him in great stead and warrant his recognition with this sacramental award.

Additional reasons

Today I am having the great honor to request one of the most influential members of the Brotherhood to be rewarded. Bale is a really outstanding member, not only talking as Consul of Taldryan but also as Magistrate to the Herald.

Since his transfer to Taldryan, Bale has gone above and beyond at looking how to increase activity within the Clan by coming up with a full-fledged proposal in no time for the first new battle-team in the Clan for over a year. He was also one of the most active members of the Clan during the recent two-phased Clan Event run by Taldryan's Proconsul lending a great hand at the progress of the Clan's storyline.

Beyond that, I am having the pleasure to work along Bale as a member of the Herald staff where he continues to set a standard for graphics and inspires the other members of the staff to ever strife to surpass their own capabilities by providing constructive criticism.

Stating the Brotherhood wiki, the Amethyst Kukri is awarded to members who have shown their dedication and focus on furthering one aspect of the Brotherhood far beyond what was expected of them and there is no one more fitting into this description as Bale, as he truly serves as an inspiration to members all over the Brotherhood in both his level of activity and influence.

Congrats Bale!

There are very few members of the DB, at least among those who hang out on Telegram, who haven’t heard of Bale Andros. In fact, it’s even fair to say that the man’s presence in the DB is as titanic as his character. There hasn’t been nearly enough recognition of that presence of late—Bale’s last award dates to August of 2016—and it’s high time we corrected that oversight.

Since his last recognition, Bale has participated in 53 competitions, and organised 5 of his own. He’s completed 36 SA courses and earned four degrees as a result. His competition awards include a Gold Nova, two Silver Novae, a Bronze Nova, six Crescents with Diamond Stars, ten Crescents with Ruby Stars, and twelve Crescents with Amethyst Stars. (Fun fact: Of the 53 competitions he’s participated in since August of 2016, Bale’s placed in 36 of them. Not many members of the DB can boast that standard of performance.) Outside the placement awards, he’s earned 187 Clusters of Ice—a result of having contributed over eighty-five thousand words of fiction to the DB, the equivalent of a short novel—and 69 Clusters of Graphite.

On the leadership front, Bale recently took the helm of Battle Team Tavros, Taldryan’s first new independent unit since… well, in a long time, anyway. Within a couple of weeks of assuming that job, Bale whipped Tavros into shape to complete a run-on entry for my Unsteady Ground competition series, in which he placed first overall due to both consistent performance and some stellar entries in both fiction and graphics. He’s also contributed heavily to discussions on Clan fictional development, and been an unofficial advisor to me since his arrival in Taldryan in October, helping to shape the direction of both the Taldryan Fictional Divisions and Unsteady Ground.

In light of his contributions to both Scholae Palatinae and Taldryan, in both formal leadership roles and in leading by example as a line member, I think it’s high time that Bale receives his long-overdue recognition. I agree wholeheartedly with Selika that Bale deserves a sacramental award for his work, and I think a second AK would fit him nicely. Well done, Bale!
