Ceremonial Inquiry

From Paravia Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Ceremonial Inquiry is a formal, closed trial of a Koriani initiate who has broken her vows of obedience. During this trial, only the Prime Enchantress, the Ceremonial Inquisitor, and the initiate are present. The Ceremonial Inquisitor dresses completely in black, and speaks for the Prime Enchantress (since she will not address oathbreakers directly). The ritual of this trial predates Koriani residence on Athera.
