Each Justicar bears considerable power in pursuit of her duties, including the right of Destruction.
Archon – Title given to the servitors of the Justicars. Most are blood bound to their Justicar, speak in her name, and act with her authority.
Servire – Just as the Archons serve the Justicars, so do the Servires serve an Archon.
