Star Wars: Confederacy Era
The backbone of the entire bureaucratic machine that is The Administration, Magnates hold
incredible individual power in political circles, essentially being lawyers who are above the reach of the law they operate to serve.
Taking orders only from the Inner Council of The Administration, they are the law of The Confederacy made manifest. Picked from all species and social groups throughout the Core Worlds, Magnates act as ruling bodies on planets, often sitting alongside planetary leaders, monarchs and warlords, ensuring that the rule of The Confederacy is adhered to.
Each is under the personal protection of the entire military subsection of The Confederacy, and to
harm, kidnap or kill a Magnate is such a serious offence that entire cities can be destroyed in
reprisal. As such, Magnates are offered considerable respect and courtesy, not only for what they
themselves are capable of, but more importantly what they represent.
All Magnates share a slavish devotion to Confederacy Laws and follow them with almost religious
fervour. To break the law to them is the worst possible sin, which makes them both incorruptible
and uncompromising in how they deal with others who would flaunt the law.
