Ira of Felix's Watch, first Custodian of the Imperial War Memorial


The Custodian is an Imperial title in the Synod. It grants custodianship of a sinecure. The position was established by a motion of the Imperial Senate during the Summer Solstice 378YE. Following some confusion, the appointment method of the title was clarified by the Imperial Senate in Summer Solstice 381YE.


The Custodian of the Imperial War Memorial is responsible for ensuring the good maintenance of the war memorial itself. Traditionally, individuals who look after such monuments are called on to speak on behalf of the dead especially during memorial services.

Point of Pilgrimage

The Imperial War Memorial draws visitors from across the Empire. Some visitors, especially those who have lost loved ones, wish to make donations to help support the Custodian as someone who is traditionally called on to speak on behalf of the dead during memorial services. The Custodian of the Imperial War Memorial receives 4 crowns each season from these donations.


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, this appointment has tenure. 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, the Assembly of the Nine, or by the Highborn National Assembly.
