ELECTION: Andrew the Scholar

The Knight Leader Election has started, and depending on how the votes swing, we hope to find us a good leader for our team of Knights, and if the team decides to vote 'No Leader' , our Kingdom will then have a Council of Knights made up all the Knights Clan Leaders.

The Chronicles team is working to interview the two candidates who so bravely dare take on the difficult responsibility, a noble task no less, and we hope the information will help you vote wisely and to also get to know potentially the leader who will maintain law and order of our beloved Kingdom.

Herewith, we present the information gathered from an interview with one of the two candidates, Andrew the Scholar(Anderebu Resident), clan leader of Al-Baheseen 'an Adl.

First, we asked for an introduction of himself, and why he decided to be Knights' Leader.

"As many know I am sir Andrew of the old orders. Upon leaving a life of the sands over a year ago I have never once broken my oath of loyalty to the Sultana and her people. For far too long I have seen corruption and war destroy everything that makes the city of Ireem great. If I were to summarize my plans... I suppose it would be to rid our orders of corruption, attempt to keep peace with those who reside outside of our walls, and restore order to our streets."

This is a job that hardly ever get an appreciative thank in return, we asked Sir Andrew's opinion, since he is running for Knights' Leader, why he thinks it is better over having a Council of Knights to lead the team; and what is the Knights' Code of Honor.

"The council idea is not out of the question, however, I do believe a strong leader assisted by those he or she leads can command more authority. A council may argue over small details in which they would then require one to break this argument which is where I believe a leader's place should be. I do not intend on becoming a tyrant, but one who listens to others and acts upon what he hears."

"As for what I personally see to be our code... I believe that my order, Al-Baheseen 'An Adl, best represents this in it's own code. We believing in serving the Sultana, fighting as one unified group as opposed to amongst ourselves, showing respect to all even those who have not yet earned it, upholding truth and justice in all things relating to law, and ridding our own of all corruption. Personally this is what a knight should be. We all have our time and place where we stand strongest, but we should work as a unified force for justice."

When asked what his clan name means, he readily obliged with a definition, and it lead to the next questions of whether he has a team to support him and how he intends to build his team of knights. What is the way to garner the respect and support of his leadership and hence carry out orders of maintaining peace?

"Al-Baheseen 'an Adl is the name of the order I have created. The name comes from the tongue of my people. As some know I am originally from a tribe deep within the sands. The name translates to 'The Seekers of Justice.'"

"Yes, I do indeed have my order behind me and hopefully others who know of my history. One of the very first things I intend to do is gather all of our men and women to meetings to improve our combat skills, the way we speak with others, and keep all of us up to date on events that occur both outside and within our walls. As for the groups themselves which reside beyond the city's limits I am already seeing to it that we begin peace negotiations with them. The city is a place where all peoples meet to eat, drink, and entertain themselves. It is my hope that we can convince all that it is in their best interest to keep it that way so assisting us would in fact assist them. If the knights are there to protect all they have less need to fear their wars carrying over into our taverns."

To conclude the interview, we have Sir Andrew sum up his campaign in one statement.

"It matters not who wins this election if any person does. What matters is that our military finally be rid of corruption and the city streets rid of criminals. We must work together with all those who wish to see this goal met whether they be within our own orders and the palace or outside of our walls. I wish to see a new era where the knights shall reclaim the power they once had and stand tall not as an invading army or a corrupt group stealing from the people, but as an honorable group of men and women willing to lay down their lives for the Sultana, Ireem, and all people that walk our streets.... I believe that is the best I can do for now. Thank you as this was a great experience and I surely hope this will answer many questions that you and many others may have."

Thank you Sir Andrew, we wish you good luck in the election.
In a Kingdom of diverse community, Peace is a rare luxury, and we can only hope for some form of law and order maintained.  We shall look forward to what fate bring forth to Ireem via this Knight Election.
