The Prelate of the Little Mother is an Imperial title which was originally created in 15YE. The position of Prelate is a sinecure, requiring minimal responsibility but offering a regular income of liao and funds donated.


The Prelate oversees the Basilica of the Little Mother in Bastion that houses the tomb of the exemplar of Prosperity. If the basilica or the tomb were to be threatened, it would be the responsibility of the Prelate to face those threats; likewise should any opportunity related to the shrine arise they would decide how to respond.


A Portion of Liao

The sinecure provides 20 doses of liao to the Prelate each season, to be used as they see fit.

Prosperous Donations

The Basilica of the Little Mother draws pilgrims from across the Empire, especially followers of Prosperity. Some pilgrims wish to make donations to help fund the orphanage or for the Prelate to use as they see fit in Anvil. The Prelate of the Little Mother receives 13 crowns each season from these donations.


The Prelate is a virtue position which is appointed by judgement of the Prosperity assembly.

The Prelate has tenure and serves until they die or step down. They can be revoked by the General Assembly, the Assembly of Prosperity, and the Assembly of the Nine.

Basilica of the Little Mother

Built in 15YE by the Custodes Clavium, with extensive investment from League citizens and priests, this beautiful structure of white granite served as a place of pilgrimage for nearly four centuries. Like other churches of the Little Mother, it operated as an orphanage - the largest outside of Sarvos. In the lead up to Winter Solstice 383YE it was the site of a terrible accident that left the the structure gutted, reduced to little more than a smoking shell.

The Imperial Senate passed a motion to repair the basilica which was completed shortly before the Spring Equinox 385YE giving the Prelate their full complement of liao.
