Powers

Inquisitor

The Imperial Inquisitor is an Imperial title in the Synod. Once per summit, they may call an inquisition 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 a Condemnation just like any other inquisition.

To use this power, the Imperial Inquisitor must still place a judgement before the Synod, but it is considered to pass automatically at the point it is presented.

Appointment

The Imperial Inquisitor is appointed by judgement of the Assembly of the Nine, during the Summer Solstice.

Any Imperial citizen can serve as Imperial Inquisitor. They can be revoked by the General Assembly and by the Assembly of the Nine.
