The Steel Cross is the mark of a true warrior and leader to be. The cruciform is made of simple durasteel to reflect the unfettered strength of the recipient. The arms are carved in relief to relate the following words in aurebesh: Devotion, Power, Victory, and Passion. The simple amber stone set in the center of the cross represents energy. A smaller saltire cross intersects the primary cross. Both crosses are reinforced by a durasteel ring implying strength and unity.
The Steel Cross is awarded for extended service to one's House or Clan, such as duties that aid a Quaestor or Aedile as well as being a mentor to others. Activity over a period of some time that goes above and beyond what is considered normal can also be rewarded with this award.
These medal upgrades are no longer in use, but are preserved here for posterity.
