[GM] Introducing our new Headmaster...
As you all are aware, the Headmaster, Farrin Xies, announced his plan to retire a little over two weeks ago. I know I speak for the whole of the Dark Council when I say that Farrin will be missed, both as a steady hand in guiding the growth and maintenace of the Shadow Academy, and as a trusted advisor and friend on the Dark Council. Farrin was always willing to assist other projects and work with Councilors to make the Brotherhood a better place for all of us. For that, Farrin, thank you, and I look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.
Farrin's departure was expected, and so we had ample time to accept applications for Headmaster. Our membership did not disappoint and filling Farrin's shoes was no easy task. We received several excellent applications from across our Brotherhood from individuals with varying degrees of experience in the Shadow Academy. Ultimately, after consulting with the Dark Council, including the current Headmaster and a former Headmaster now serving as Justicar, I ultimately decided that Daniel "Seraphol" Stevens, current Praetor to the Headmaster, will become our next Headmaster. Seraphol's application demonstrated a thorough understanding of the Academy, its current state, and how best to move it forward. I'm excited to have him join our Dark Council and look forward to working with him on improving the Shadow Academy.
Please, join me in thanking Farrin for his exemplary service and congratulating Seraphol in his ascension to Headmaster of the Shadow Academy!
