'09ers are the second group of OTers. They are the only group that isn't mainly based of their year. The two types of '09er are Pre-Great Purge and Post-Great Purge. Those before the Purge are considered great and near the same caliber as '08ers. Post Purge are considered a lesser compared to their early brothers. A curious case is that of Branch who signed up on the Torums in March 09, but did not return until late 2010.
All '09ers are considered superior to others. Being one gains respect among the '10ers and others. They are also the first full year of members.
