The Mahdi'in d'ma Dieb Gaidin who make up the Mahdi'in d'ma Dieb Company are independent, creative, insightful and loyal. Every currently active member of the Company has served the community to some degree, and most have gone above and beyond what is expected. Their service to our community is as varied as they are, spanning EVERY Department within our Administration.



Despite being the smallest of our four Companies, many Gaidin of the Mahdi'in d'ma Dieb Company have been mentors. Aves (4) , Bao (2), Bayrd (2), Calen (3), Ciaran, Emp, Jalen, Jeryn (4), Marrow, Mathei, Murasaki (3), Pip (2) and Venric have mentored over 26 Junior Members!


For their Company many MDD Gaidin have served as Warder Councillors in The Hall of the Tower, some serving a staggering 9 terms. But their service to their Company doesn’t end there with many stepping up to serve as Horror Guards (the chosen name for their Honour Guards) and Company Commanders. The gluttons for punishment even served multiple terms.

  • Aves Keynes served as Horror Guard and as a Warder Councillor (2).
  • Bao the Wyld served as Company Commander (2), Horror Guard and as a Warder Councillor (3).
  • Barmacral Tigana served as Company Commander, Horror Guard (4) and Warder Councillor (7).
