The Chaplain Consular keeps a careful eye on the activities of the Imperial ambassadors.
Hywel Summercrow, first Imperial Chaplain Consular.


The Imperial Chaplain Consular is an Imperial Title appointed by the Cardinal of the Way. The title was created by the Imperial Senate during the Spring Equinox summit of 379YE.

The first Imperial Chaplain Consular was Hywel Summercrow of Navarr, appointed in Spring 379YE by Cardinal Bishop Beodun Snowlock of Wintermark. The decision has prompted some speculation that the Cardinals of the Way intend to follow the traditions surrounding the Conscience of the Senate - specifically that it is customary to select a candidate from a nation other than that of the Cardinal.

When it was created, The Imperial Chaplain Consular had the power to withdraw funds directly from the virtue fund. Shortly before the Summer Solstive 385YE, however, the Constitutional Court ruled that the ability to withdraw funds directly from the virtue fund was unconstitutional, and struck the power down.


The Chaplain Consular has three main responsibilities. They are expected to advise Imperial Ambassadors on matters pertaining to the Way - to offer them theological guidance and spiritual counsel in their dealings with foreign nations. They are to provide oversight of Imperial Ambassadors for the Synod - to ensure that the representatives of the Empire are free from heresy, and do not become seduced by the strange ways of foreign nations. Finally, they are expected to study foreign religions, and to share their conclusions in order to facilitate comparative theology.


Inquisit Imperial Ambassador

Once per summit, the Imperial Chaplain Consular may call an inquisition against an Imperial ambassador without the need for a vote in the Synod. This is in addition to any existing judgements they have raised normally. This use of the power may be escalated to sanction just like any other inquisition. To use this power, the Imperial Chaplain Consular must still place a judgement before the Synod, but it is considered to pass automatically at the point it is presented.


The Chaplain Consular is appointed by the Cardinal of the Way, during the Spring Equinox.

Any Imperial citizen may hold the title. They can be revoked by the General Assembly or the Assembly of the Way.
