History

Heads of Ajah were one of the first official positions at TarValon.Net. At the beginning, Eleyan Teyal Al'Landerin held several of the roles under other pseudonyms. On September 13, 2002, when Lailauni al'Dager was raised to Head of the Gray Ajah this was the first time all Ajahs had a representative of their own group. Until June 2006, when the role of Director of Membership was created, Heads of Ajah reported directly to the Keeper. Around the same time the guesting system was put in place and the duty of facilitating Accepted guesting in the Ajah was added to the role.
