It is a fine thing when that which has been part of one's character for so long is recognized in full by title. In this case, Lord Apollo's nobility. Countess Carita has become the newest envy of the Compact having laid claim to him.
--- Bisland Stance via Michael ---
Alas. The tyrannical nobility has once again claimed another fine commoner. One of the best of the Whispers and a wondrous guildmaster. Expectations are going to be far too high for this one, but we are sure of Lord Apollo Darkwater's ability to meet them.
--- Mirrormask Stance via Giada ---
When someone dedicates their life to the pursuit of excellence, when they face the challenges and fears before them with grit and determination, their value is evident long before honours might be bestowed. Good luck, Lord Apollo Darkwater. You've certainly proven your worth.
--- Blackshore Stance via Romulius ---
House Blackshore extends its welcome to Lord Apollo. Long has he conducted himself in a manner becoming of the title and of the weight that it carries, and we will be eternally grateful both for his assistance to Blackshore and to the Compact at large.
--- Whisper Stance via Anisha ---
Lord Apollo has served among the Whispers with distinction and grace, and it comes as no surprise to see him elevated to the peerage. We commend Countess Carita on her fine taste, and wish House Darkwater good fortune.
--- Scholars Stance via Aelgar ---
The Scholars of Vellichor echo the confidence in Lord Apollo Darkwater expressed so commonly in his support. The Compact is richer for having a man of Lord Apollo's quality helping lead us into the future.
--- Culler Stance via Torian ---
We're pleased to see Apollo elevated and trust his work continues to glorify Jayus. We also remind Lord Apollo's loyal costumers that Lowers Leather at Commons Square shall remain commoner owned, with fine leather goods for sale or trade.
--- Ulbran Stance via Raymesin ---
That's a shame. We're going to miss the Master Leatherworker - but probably not as much as the Guild and Whisper House are.

No matter the mettle of a man, and Apollo has shown himself to be quite the man, you can never change blood.

Certainly a clear stance that Darkwater stands against Helianthus and their ilk. Congratulations to Lord Apollo, and our comisserations to the Guild and Whispers on their loss, and to all who will not now have the benefit of his exceptional craft.
