The State Enforcers
The Loyal Enforcers of the Edicts of the Judiciary’s Court are the law keepers of Sinophia. Their power is granted by the Judiciary and the Quorum. Therefore, by extension, they are sanctioned by Sinophia’s dissolute and corrupt nobility. The Enforcers are intended to support the local laws of Sinophia, maintain order, and deal with such common crimes as murder, smuggling, and extortion, whilst the Adeptus Arbites, in theory, deal with crimes directed against the Adepta and those such as petty heresy, slaving, and corruption that contravene high Imperial Law.
The reality, however, is that the Enforcers are a brutal and corrupt force whose primary aim is the maintenance of the power of their noble masters and financiers. Though the various departments housed in the Sanctum go through the motions of investigating and punishing criminal activity, they always do so with an eye to their own—and their masters’— advantage. The head of the Enforcers is the vicious Enforcer General Xiabius Khan, a former bounty hunter brought in by the Quorum who has made the Enforcers a tool for furthering his own criminal ambitions and for brutally repressing any dissent among the opposition to the aristocratic rulers of Sinophia.
