Only those who are deemed worthy can hold the title of ruler known as a Radiarch so that we may never fall into the failures of the monarchs that plunged the world into wickedness and corruption. - Consular Enuwe Carube
  When the Radiarchys were founded, an argument was given on who should led the lands of Embera under rule. With many many ideas coming up from councils to states, however, with the dangers of the Gloom seeming to ever linger as fail safe was in order to protect the continent from another age of darkness. It was a that point that the Radiants were chosen to rule do their strong connection to the light and their kind hearts that came with it. With them being so few in number however a selection had to be done to so how were the most qualified to rule and not through bloodlines any longer to ensure what was best for the continent. Since that time all Radiarchs have been elected to determine the prosperity of the Radiarchys and their peoples.

The Radiarchs are very cool. And I appreciate the breaking up into chunks with headings too... makes it all flow really nicely. I'm very intrigued to learn about any fallen Radiarchs... how, why, what's befallen them.

All in good time, as there were some that had indeed fallen and brought dire consequences to the continent because of it.

May you forever find your way on the journey you set out on and make yourself greater.
