An Akhelian King.

Akhelian Kings and Akhelian Queens are considered to be the mightiest warriors amongst the Idoneth. To be given command of a Phalanx, one must prove themself, being swift and strong as well as sharp-minded. They traditionally ride Deepmares, beasts so rare that they are reserved for the greatest of warriors only. [1a][1b]

Recruitment

All Akhelians are required to serve within the military of the Enclave of their birth and as such are trained within the Asydrazor from an early age. Trainees must complete their mhair trials before they are declared full Akhelians.[1b]

These young warriors will then either be grouped with their training group and made into a new unit, or they will be drafted into existing units to replace those lost during raids. From here on out their fate is in their own hands, as every rank within the military must be earned with time, skill, and experience. Only through an impressive degree of military talent, decades of experience, and a keen tactical mind can a warrior rise up through the ranks of the Battalions.[1a][1b]

Achieving the rank of King or Queen and gaining the right to command a Phalanx is a long, harrowing journey for Akhelians. After completing their training in the Asydrazor they must spend decades proving their skills and sharpening their tactical and logistical thinking, achieving each rank within the hierarchies of the military through their own skill and merit until they can prove themselves worthy of command.[1a][1b]

Military

Every Phalanx of the Idoneth Enclaves is led by a Royal Council. These triumvirates are comprised of an Akhelian King or Queen, an Isharann Tidecaster, and an Isharann Soulscryer. It is their duty to direct the phalanx they lead to defend their enclaves and raid the surface for souls, carefully ensuring that the losses received never outweigh the gains.[1b][1c]

Wargear

The most notable part of a King or Queen's arsenal is their Deepmare mount, vicious sea beasts that assail prey with their spiral horns, fangs, talons, and tails. The King or Queen upon the beast will also employ a wide variety of weaponry that includes falchions, bladed polearms, and greatswords, which are used in tandem with a King's Shield.[1a][1d]
