Lan Man (he/him/they) entered New Eden on 1 October YC124 (2022). Lan completed capsuleer and career agent training at Hadaugago II - Moon 1 - Republic Military School, and proceeded shortly after to apply to Eve University, enrolling on 5 October YC124.
In the Real World
I had played Eve Online in 2013-2014 for a period of ~8 months under a different character, flying at first with BRAVE in Syndicate, and then with IRL friends in a lowsec pirate corporation. I drifted away due to other gaming interests, and discomfort at not being able to contribute meaningfully in PvP as a low skill character. I returned to Eve in 2022 seeking a long-term game, but this time with willingness to embrace the complexity and learn the game fully. In that light I felt a need for a fresh start under a new name, and that enrolling in and seeking to graduate from Eve University would be a far better means to learn the game rather than jumping into the deep end of the pool as before.

[CLASS] Introduction to Pathfinder - Following sessions of Intro to Wormhole Mechanics in February and March 2023, several attendees expressed interest in an Introduction to Pathfinder style class. Intent here is to create a class which can be delivered via live demo in Pathfinder, with slides and speaking notes sufficient to teach the material outside of Pathfinder and/or for learners to consume individually if necessary. RC1 of this class was submitted for Teaching Department review via Discord on March 21, 2023.

Community Content Initiative
I enrolled in the Community Content Initiative on 18 October, 2022, with progress underway as of 26 February 2023. Link to E-UNI forum thread.
I joined the Fleet Command team as a Junior FC in December 2022, and am easing into PvP FC'ing via the 2IC role where/when able.
I have taught a few classes at Eve University, and try to make my presenters notes available both via the teaching department and on demand. Classes I have taught include Intro to Bookmarks, Intro to the Nullsec Community, and Intro to Wormhole Mechanics.
