Overview

The Imperial Magus is an Imperial Title appointed by Declaration of the Imperial Conclave.

When it was initially created, the title was Conclave Liason to the Senate and had only the right to address the Senate. At the Autumn Equinox summit 378YE the powers of the title were amended, and re-titled Imperial Magus. During the Spring Equinox 379YE, the responsibilities of the title were further expanded to include a responsibility to keep the Imperial Conclave appraised of the Senate's position on magical matters.

Responsibilities

The Liaison is expected to take responsibility for providing the Senate with advice on magical matters. Following further discussion, these responsibilities were expanded to give the Imperial Magus the responsibility to advise the Imperial Conclave of the Senate's position on magical matters.

Powers

Right of Address

The Imperial Magus has the right to make an address to the Senate once per summit. This is intended to allow them to present important information for the Senators consideration. To use this power, the Magus informs the Civil Service that they wish to address the Senate. Their address will be added to the agenda for the next Senate session.

Member of the Senate

As a non-voting member of the Senate, the Imperial Magus is entitled to enter the Senate chamber at the start of a Senate session and participate in the debates. They do not have the power to raise motions or to vote on a motion. This power is intended to be used to participate in Conclave related discussions.

Addressing the Conclave

Once per summit, the Imperial Magus can raise an address to the agenda of a conclave session for free.

Appointment

The appointment, replacement, or removal of the Imperial Magus is made by the declaration of candidacy as part of a Conclave session. Any Imperial citizen may hold the title. The Magus serves until they are replaced by another magician using the Declaration of Candidacy. As a title in the Conclave, they cannot be revoked.
