Someone is coming from lands far from Ishgard. . .
The Royal Emissary
Who are they?
The Estryan Empire—the fastest-growing foreign power from a continent different from Ishgar. Overseas, it’s known for its militant aristocracy, imperialistic ventures, and feudalistic values. This Empire occupies a small amount of land and influence on the continent that continues to grow as they take over smaller and weaker states surrounding them, leading them on the path of becoming a modern-day superpower. The previous persons in power did not expand beyond the sea, but a new generation of aristocrats begin their supreme reign and commence their legacy with The Royal Emissary, resting their nation’s aspirations on this group’s shoulders as their ambitions travel beyond the border.
The Royal Emissary is just that—a royal emissary. Various aristocrats have sent forth a small group of representatives to various states, including Fiore, in hopes of doing away with the world’s isolationism. In an effort to encourage this, mages do not join the emissaries but are employed by them. In exchange for the protection of its representatives, execution of political orders, escorting, and various other tasks, wizards who work under the emissary are paid handsomely and offered supreme working conditions.
Estrya has made Her purpose clear to the Magic Council. Goodwill and nothing more. But for a nation with such malevolent values for people and dangerous history of imperialism, what are they really up to when the Council isn’t looking?
Goals & Values
Estrya does not own any Ishgardian territory and instead transports their emissaries through technologically advanced ships capable of traversing the harshest of seas and most hazardous of skies. These aircrafts are plentiful in number to allow several of their emissaries and employees access to almost all of Earthland at speeds and comforts more surpreme than what Ishgard might have to offer. While their numbers are numerous, the main aircraft that transports them and is the primary base of operations is the S.S Nero or "strong and wise warrior" in Estryan.
These aircrafts have what any Ishgardian guild has and operates like a modern guild hall. As a result, however, they have no set location and are otherwise nomadic. However, the S.S Nero is often seen hovering over the Calm Sea.
Ranks & Positions
The hierarchy of The Royal Emissary is very simplistic and straightforward, but each group has incredible responsibility. However, the higher one goes up in rank, their awareness of the Estryan agenda increases. However, it is completely possible, if not more likely, that Escorts are also working with this concealed agenda.
