RANK SUMMARIES

just as they collect votes, they are the Imperator's closest advisors. The Imperator relies on them to ensure their data is both accurate and not tampered with, as well as for their insight on difficult matters.
Praetor
just below the consul. they are also part of the Imperator's inner fold, who provide insight, as well as stand in for a consul, if one is preoccupied, or worse.
Censor
supervises pack morality, and reports back to others within the fold. Can also be used as spies within the pack, if there are whispers of a revolt.
----

The general. the military ranks fall under their command. reports directly to the Imperator.
Legatus
in charge of training the new recruits and maintaining order within ranks. reports to the Dux.
Centurion
soldiers. built and trained to defend their home with their lives. they also maintain borders, hunt, and do scouting missions to other packs for aid/resources/alliances

---

Centurion Handbook
This Handbook encompasses all military ranks. Your duties are as follows:
  • Tend to the borders, both in protecting them, and in accepting newcomers.
  • Alert the Legatus or Dux if issues arise, or if there is a travelling party crossing the strait.
  • Train daily, with both your peers and those beneath you and collectively hone your abilities.
  • Form legions with your fellow soldiers, and work closely together as a family and team.
  • Protect the public.
---

Acceptances
This can be done through any means, like proving their worth in a fight, a race, or knowledge of medicinal plants. Acceptances are every ranked members responsibility, so that one rank is not bogged down by an influx of newcomers. All those who are unranked and newly accepted must wear a white scarf upon their shoulders.

Trespassers
Anyone who crosses the threshhold of spears that surrounds the border of the island without a scarf is to be apprehended, no exceptions.

Visitors

If the leader of another pack, or their embassadors are found to be at the border, they are to be given purple scarves. Help is to be called, preferably the Legatus or Dux, so that they may be graciously escorted into Vexillum.

Refugees
If an escapee from another pack manages to cross the strait and wishes to claim asylum within Vexillum, you are to call the Pontifex Maximus, and allow them to handle the case. A vote may be held to determine this wolf's fate.

---

Other Duties

Fights
When a fight breaks out, your duty is not to stop them, but to keep others who may get swept in, back and away. You are to work with the Pontiffs to ensure public safety until the fight stops, or until someone of a higher rank or status steps in.

Raids
If the pack is raided, both Centurions and Medicus are to be first responders, taking care of casualties and apprehending suspects.

Pontiff Handbook

This encompasses all civic ranks. Your duties are as follows:
  • Tend to the sick and hungry.
  • Hunt enough to feed your designated area of the pack, to the best of your ability.
  • Keep the peace, and encourage others to be diplomatic when tensions get high.
  • Attempt to appease the gods both through sacrifice and making offerings.
  • Collect the scraps of cloth scattered around the land, and wash and tend to them.
  • Handle acceptances if necessary, through evaluation of herbal knowledge, hunting ability, or of divining through entrails.
---

Acceptances
This can be done through any means, like winning a race, proving their knowledge of medicinal plants, joining a party in a hunt, or divining through an animals entrails. Acceptances are every ranked members responsibility, so that one rank is not bogged down by an influx of newcomers. All those who are unranked and newly accepted must wear a white scarf upon their shoulders.

Medicine
Pontiffs must know the plants on the island very well, their names and uses, as well as how to best apply them to a wound, or in pain relief, or any other possible uses.

Divination
All Pontiffs must know of various means of divination, either through using the stars, or the entrails of an animal, and should have a base knowledge of how to read these signs. Haruspex however, specialize in this aspect, and work together with the Pontiffs directly to determine the best course of action if things seem grim.

Tutoring
All Pontiffs must do their part in educating Infantia of Vexillum's culture, and readying them for when they finally mature into Plebians, and are expected to prove themselves. They often take one apprentice, and teach that apprentice all about the various ranks and responsibilities they will one day have.

Hunting
All Pontiffs are expected to do their part in taking down large prey for the pack in teams, often including their apprentices. No one should go hungry.

Civil Disputes
These should be taken to a Pontiff, as they are trained to see both sides of the situation and help both parties work out a middle ground. If no middle ground can be worked out, the Pontiff may suggest other means of solving the problem, via Pontifex intervention, or some other means.

Clothiers
Pontiffs are expected to take good care of the cloth they find strewn about the pack lands, and undergo a process of washing them and ensuring they smell nice and up to an acceptable standard, most importantly before big events, but also to have them ready for newcomers. Citizens of the pack may also take their cloths to Pontiffs and have them washed, while they wear a temporary replacement for the time being.
