Zalamiri Precedence of the Imperial Lineage

The Zalamiri Empire runs on its well-tuned bureaucracy, and at the heart of that bureaucracy is the Ministry for the Precedence of the Imperial Lineage. It exists in its own building near but separate from the Imperial Palace and the Anthill, accessible by only those who work there, the Emperor, and a rare few others.

“The Precedence” is overseen by Gulshan, a eunuch slave gifted to Emperor Timofy IX. A Zynar Azkaderra by birth, but freed by Timofy IX, Gulshan is long-lived and absolutely loyal to the imperial throne.

A staff of 3 clerks and 3 “investigators” aid Gulshan in tracking the Precedence of the Imperial Lineage, and make adjustments on the advice of the Emperor, since the throne is not awarded strictly on blood, but also on favor, ability, health, and sometimes, opportunism.

At the top of the list is always the sitting Emperor/Empress, and following down to all that are eligible for the crown and throne.
