An Elangomat fulfills many functions in the Induction process, but his chief responsibility is revealed by his title Elangomat, which means “FRIEND”. A good Elangomat develops a personal relationship with each of the members of his clan. But this relationship is not one of words, it is deeper, for he shares in the hardships of the candidates, and in their silence. The job of an Elangomat is not easy. He must function as a crew chief, friend, example to his candidates, counselor, mediator, and policemen. The Elangomat must be a constant and continual example of the Obligation. This may not always be possible, but it is the goal. Being an Elangomat is a great sacrifice, but as with all true services, you gain as much or more than you give. This you will know if you take the Challenge yourself.
