An Aheneus is the basic ordained member of the Keepers. Aheneia (plural) don't have much authority within the the their hierarchy, but they are trusted to be able to carry out their duties without direct supervision and make their own decisions in the field. At the very least, their superiors don't hand them grunt work merely to "build character and show discipline". Aheneia that are ordained are the base priest level for the Keepers, capable of leading religious services, presiding over funerals, blessing children, and marrying people. Given that the Keepers are frequently intertwined with secular governments, Aheneia that are holy warriors are trusted to lead small groups of lay soldiers of Khemra-friendly lords and ladies. A majority of Keepers never progress beyond this rank.
