The Legend Edit
Long ago a once proud nation was mercilessly burnt to the ground until only ash remained. Years later under that very ash survived a single ember, which smoldered until it became a shining light leading the way for a new nation to be born. Strana Mechty (Land of Dreams) was founded on May 25, 2009 in the aftermath of the Karma War, lead by Alexander Kerensky on that same date they joined the alliance of the Legion which became there home.
Early life and activism Edit
Alexander Kerensky was born in Simbirsk on the Volga River into the family of military wealth. His father, Fyodor Kerensky, was a General. His mother, Nadezhda Adler, was the daughter of a nobleman Phelon Adler, head of the Intelligence Bureau of the Kazan Military District.
During his early career in the Legion, Alexander volunteered to be an ambassador to the newly reformed Nordreich. Months later he became a mentor of new members to the Alliance. This later move would prove to be monumental in shaping his later career.
Hardship and Service Edit
As the nation of Strana Mechty flourished so to did Alexander in his positions in the Legion. He was promoted to Senior Ambassador for his work in Foreign Affairs though his views were focused on education.
As a mentor Alexander was timely and involved in his duties. When the Alliance departments of Game Mechanics and Education were separated into two divisions under Internal Affairs his work in the department was recognized receiving the promotion to Head Mentor under then Director RyanM.
This would prove to be the beginning of a long and tumultuous path filled with opposition and disappointment. The sitting Director of Education creating a grand plan of professors and classes for all of the Alliance to partake in. He was given awards by Consulate and praised for his ideas, which quickly and quite spectacularly failed. At which point and with no warning he resigned from the Legion and joined the Alliance of Quantum (a break away from the Legion Alliance).
On November 2009 Alexander Kerensky accepted the position as the second Director of Eduction. Upon this acceptance he took a month to rework the department from the ground up to make it actually work. While his achievements were recognized in the Ministry only complaints and calls for the dissolution of the department were heard from the outside.
Many members (now former) purposed ideas for what they wanted to see changed in the department, though not one of those members were actual a standing member of Education. Over the eleven month tenure as Director of Education many dark times and frustration persisted. So much so that he drew up plans to fold the department back into Game Mechanics and resign. Luckily the Minister of Internal Affairs would have none this.
