Insignia

The Insignia are ancient badges of office that date back to the very foundation of the Dome, over a thousand years ago. They are irreplaceable, and each one is entirely unique in function. Each Insignium allows the bearer, the designated member of the Insignia Council, access to particular areas. More importantly, it gives the bearer particular abilities related to the original function on the ship.   For example, the Paladian Rolmguard, as the bearer of what was once the chief security officer's badge, is capable of opening most doors with a single thought, of accessing internal sensor data mentally, and exerting a telekinetic force designed to subdue any wrongdoer without having to draw a weapon.   To the people of the Dome, who have since forgotten that they ever came from anywhere else and have entirely lost mentions of the ship they arrived on, these abilities seem like magic. They are an inexplicable part of everyday life, and those who can use these skills to greater effect are considered exceptional, without much consideration as to why.

Significance

The bearer of an Insignium is instantly recognizable as a member of the Insignia Council. They confer immense authority over the people of the Dome. Originally, they were the crew badges of the ship that crashed on Thaiterra, and were repurposed to be symbols of the government. They are the only remaining physical link to the crashed ship.
