The last great vestige of the religious sect that once ruled the Empire, the Theology Council has the same role as the supreme court has in other empires. It also acts a moral police and hunter of heretics, which gives it considerable power within the Empire, allowing it to investigate, question and even imprison almost anyone at its whim.
The Theology Council was formed by the Emperor following the Moral Reforms. It was originally a gathering of religious leaders convened to create a new canon of Scriptures that would ensure the Emperor’s strength. They were eventually made permanent and their Inquisitors worked to purge the Empire’s faith to fit the new order.
