The Executive Office of the Ascendancy (EoA) consists of the immediate staff serving beneath the Ascendancy. This is a moderate sized group divided into various Consulates, each of which are headed by a Chief Consular directly appointed by the Ascendancy.
The EoA is operated by the Deputy Consul Chief of Staff, who also serves as liaison between the EoA and Custody of Defense. Primarily, the EoA provides the Ascendancy with the support he needs to govern and maintain the allegiance of the general public. Varying departments within the EoA are titled as Consulates.
The individuals in charge of the Consulates are titled Consuls. The title references the diplomatic mission each individual symbolizes, as they represent the Ascendancy himself, acting as emissaries between and among the custodies.
