Point of Pilgrimage

The Custodian receives 6 liao and 12 votes in the Imperial Synod. If the custodian is not a priest, these votes could be used in the General Assembly. If the custodian is a priest, they can call on these votes in any assembly they already participate in.

Appointment

The Custodian is a Highborn appointment made by a judgement of the Highguard National Assembly. This is a national title and can only be held by a Highborn citizen.

As with most sinecures, the assumption is that the Custodian retains the position until they die or step down. They can be revoked by a lesser majority of the General Assembly or by the Highborn National Assembly.
