So I had some discussion with at least two friends about the Talinth leaders and government. This was mostly sparked from one of the friends questioning how sincere the Talinth leaders would be compared to our own leaders.
Needless to say I got frustrated and angry and stewed in some mysanthropic feelings for a bit.
But it did get me thinking.
The Talinth government is more or less a form of Deliberative Democracy. The major clan leaders and the leaders of the few subclans beneath them frequently come together and discuss the ruling of their civilization at large, what laws to pass, what direction their people should go in.
Now when the Unification Act came into play, I’m thinking that a set of rules were put in place to ensure their new government would be able to fairly lead their people into the stars.
Those rules go as follows:
- No clan can be pushed out of the council without reason. Such as if that clan becomes a threat to the whole or attempts to unbalance the council in their favour.
- All opinions must be considered from each clan involved with the council to ensure the best one is found for the betterment of the Sahren.
- If a clan is found to be swaying decisions in their favour they are to be ousted from their seat. If a clan is found to be setting another clan up they too are to be ousted.
There certainly needs to be more of them but that’s what I have so far.
After this I wondered if those leaders would adhere to the rules on their own or if an enforcer type clan would be in place to make sure they remember those rules.
So now there’s an enforcer clan that needs a name and a leader. I figured it would be of mixed origin so there would be little in the way of favouritism, so it wasn’t built of an original bloodline but a group of devoted Sahrists hand picked from various clans and countries.
Leader: Tarh’el Lusaro
Tarh’el is a stoic warrior of Lun’sahre in her eighth century, she and the rest of the Lusaro guard stand watch over the council chambers as the clan leaders discuss the issues of their civilization.
I’ll expand on it more, but for now that’s what I have. At least it’s in place.
My only other thought about the Lusaro is that their devotion to Lun’sahre is shown in a similar matter to Shenra in as much as they tattoo red ovals around their eyes. It is symbolic of Lun’sahre’s appearance in life.
