Magistrates

“To protect and serve” is the typical motto of the Magistrates, as such, the Magistrates influence can be very handy in protecting one’s holdings and domains or raiding the assets of another. Magistrates of all ranks, detectives, guards, supernatural investigators (seers), tax accountants, highway patrolmen, special divisions (Such as a former SWAT team or a Spirit Binders unit), and counterintelligence operatives make up these ranks.
