Eyes beyond the gods.
A yousi had to be selected from birth by another yousi who was ordained by The Confederation. It was believed that selecting a child after their first year would let the impurities of the world corrupt their ability to see the future.
A yousi would be brought to the age of 7 where training would begin on the seventh day, of the seventh month of that year. From then on, the child would be responsible for their lessons and training. On their 14th year, they were expected to venture out on a religious ceremony to gain a sacred vision. By their 21st year, if they had completed the variety of points of their training to completion at the correct moments, they would be ordained by the government. If at any time they failed, youth would be murdered in their sleep at a rightfully ordained hour.
Payment & Reimbursement
Although Yousi are not allowed to accept money, they generally have their way paid for them anywhere that they go, either by government officials or by casual civilians. Using their divination is intended to be enough for a Yousi, but their ability to see the future gives them great lateral ability throughout society, and they are generally highly prized. There are also no rules within their order about accepting such gifts, and as such, there are sometimes corrupt Yousi who do things simply for favours.
Yousi are afforded high social rank as well as direct access to the government and various officials in a capacity that very few are. This being said, they are also required to respond to any needs of the royals whenever a royal beckons for them.
