The Commissariat

Founding.

The organization that would become the commissariat started in the mind of General Irisk. Originally
formed as the moral and punishment division, Irisk created a team of ten other ranking officers and set about putting the idea together.

Training.

Children brought to the Irisk training facility undergo twenty years of conditioning both physically and mentally, as well as lessons in weapons use, marksmanship, leadership, tactics, diplomacy, philosophy, current law, military history, etiquette, basic psychology, religious studies and duelling.

The two most senior Commissars, Lord Commissar Asheth and Commissar General Shorsha teach many of the classes cadets take, both focusing on philosophy.

Asheth, a wise man in his late seventies, teaches his cadets that every man under their command is a potential hero, bound for greatness in the name of the King. The way to unlock this potential is to lead from the front, giving commands and boosting morale, both on and off the battlefield.

Shorsha teaches a very different lesson. At only 34 she has accomplished much and firmly believes that fear is key to effective leadership. Soldiers under her command have learnt to fear her more than the enemy, as she is known to use her powers of summery execution liberally and implores her students to do the same.

Most students try to take both lessons and find a balance in which they feel comfortable, but some adhere strictly to one teaching or another.
