The King of Skystead
The King of Skystead rules the citizens of Skystead, and must be of Estrian descent. He must be at least forty years old or older.
The King of Skystead is played by Wulfric Dietritche
---- Primary Noble Hamilies of Skystead
Skystead has five primary noble families, but there will be some smaller ones too, obviously, that are completely open for roleplayers to invent themselves. These families each own an estate somewhere within the country and are the wealthiest families in Skystead. They tend to have at least one family member representing them in the royal court.
A strike through the name means the family has characters in play, while no strike means the family has no characters and is still available.
The Dietritches - Sigil is a gold phoenix on a crimson field. Current royal family.
The Assendorps - Sigil is a green ash tree on a pale grey field.
The Ecclestons - Sigil is a gold hawk on a black field.
The Westerbergs - Sigil is a snow-capped mountain on an indigo field.
The Brauers - Sigil is a white horse rearing on a purple field.
---- Court Advisors
A King always has need of advisors, and these men make up the royal court of Skystead. The King often places particular duties on these advisors too, as the work load that comes with ruling a vast city would be far too much for one man alone. Royal advisors are generally of noble descent but could have worked their way up to the rank. They must be thirty years old or more.

Advisor #3 is played by Ishild Breitbarth

--- The Court Archivist
The Archivist of Skystead's court is in charge of retaining and preserving historical documents and books/tomes. However, this character also leads a notable Mage's guild that was founded by his/her great grandfather. Therefore they are a powerful magic user. They have newly inherited the guild. Their experience with magic is up to the player, but their experience with magic is bound to be better if they are older. The guild has always acted as a neutral entity that avoided conflict between kingdoms, but whether or not this will change is up to the player. If it is changed, there will certainly be uproar among guild members.
The Court Archivist also has an apprentice archivist who they are secretly tutoring in magic on the sidelines. This character should be younger, perhaps in their late teens to twenties. They are most likely Estrian but they could also be Xastliian.

--- The Seven Blades
The Seven Blades are a mercenary group. Their headquarters lies in Skystead but they can be found all over Esnium.

--- The Jewellers' Guild
Posing as a mere crafting guild in Bulíd involved in the making of jewellery, this is also a society of secretive assassins. Skilled poison-brewers, one of their techniques is incorporating miniscule barbs laced with venom into various pieces of jewellery and make sure it reaches the intended victim in an innocent manner. However not all members of this secret society use such sly methods, many of them are classic blade-to-throat assassins. The Jewellers' Guild is overseen by the Master of Craft but so far no one has been able to prove that he/she is aware of the assassin sect's existence. The former Spymaster was in the middle of investigating this when he was mysteriously poisoned. Refer to Desilava Resnik for more information on this.
