Each house may write its own governing document determining how its respective Councilor or Cardinal seat on the High Council will be determined. They may use any process they like – the Council will honor those proceedings.
Following is a suggested power structure for all Cardinal Colleges. Academy of House Cerulean, House of Jade Dreamers, and all “other groups” will have very different structures.
Cardinal – the ruler of each House, and the sole voting representative on the High Council.
Councilor – the ruler of a House without a Cardinal. Can also be assigned as needed to help administer larger Houses under the command of the Cardinal.
Ordinal(s) – acts as deputies to the leader. Optional in smaller Houses.
House Castellan – responsible for the safety and security of the House or Chapter, with command of the Guards.
Timelords – as many as needed.
Guards – as many as needed, will be conscripted by the High Council for major invasion events.
