Laws of Phoenicia

The High Council

The High Council of Phoenicia is composed of one representative of each of the three Houses: Toba for House Dragon, Eduard Medyev for House Stallion and Vivandrel for House Leopard. Together, the High Council makes the major decisions regarding the long-term direction of the kingdom.

The Minor Council

In the event that the High Council cannot come to a decision, then the Minor Council is responsible for breaking the deadlock. Currently the only member of the Minor Council is Lenor for House Falcon.

Rules of Succession

The Head of each House may at any time announce their heir. The succession is not necessarily hereditary, though hereditary appointments are allowed.
