The Office of the Judiciary
Although the office of the Judiciary is also the planetary governor, in truth, this leader is usually as compromised as any other noble of the Quorum. The current Judiciary is no exception to this; Evandus Idrani is little more than a blustering figurehead. Pawn to numerous factions and bad debts, he has little control over his own court—let alone the thousands of Enforcers nominally under his command. The Enforcers are divided, corrupt, and unsubtle agents of summary punishment and social control, and most are little more than state-sponsored extortionists at any rate. At their core are the Mandato, a feared secret police force of torturers and killers that exists purely to maintain the Judiciary’s power.
