Five extremely powerful Autonomous Entities who rule the League through their churces. They have each taken the aspect of some virtue and are accordingly called Industry, Truth, Wisdom, Valor, and Mercy. They all originate in the Rift.
Their alliance is uneasy, so much so that they do not conjoin with each other directly for fear of attack. They each have their own church headed by a cardinal. They cooperate through the Allchurch, which they use to regulate the flow of ember so as to maintain a balance of power.
