EBRIETAS ⚔ DYNASTY
Knowledge over power
Tenetsi We are a Dynasty, as such the line of leadership succession is passed on through the Ebrietas family from parent to child or occasionally to a sibling, niece/nephew or close cousin if the leader has no children. Only rarely is a trusted non family member allowed to step up as Regent, until proper Ebrietas kin can be appointed.
ii The Shogun is sole leader of the Dynasty and may be male or female but must be of Ebrietas blood. Their mate can hold any rank in the Dynasty but will always be included in the Lord Council and is respected well above their station.
iii The Dynasty is a peaceable community, as such the arts, spirituality and all teachings are held with the highest honor. Sensei (teachers) are to be respected, and all youth - along with new members - are known as Gakusei (student) and must attend classes in the history and the ways of the Dynasty before they can take up a proper rank.
iv Fighting is discouraged. But when a dispute cannot be solved with words, setting up a spar judged by a higher ranking member is healthy and vital alternative that allows members to let out pent up aggressions or work out grudges.
v All members of this society are to be treated with respect. Crimes against one another or even outsiders is unacceptable and the severity of your crimes will be reflected in your punishment.
vi Members are encouraged to love freely, be it finding a mate or having a fling. In accordance to the above rule, forced mating or sexual assault are considered crimes akin to murder and are punished with the most severity.
vii The Dynasty is a progressive place, as such, creatures of all sexualities and gender identities (or lack-thereof) are treated as any other would be. Discrimination is looked down upon.
viii Though having a prevailing council, the Dynasty is still considered a democracy of opinions. As such all members of society are encouraged to voice theirs, as long as they do so with respect and research.
