candidates

Each year the great houses, guilds, and simple folk of Alathor send their best and brightest (or whomever they can spare) to the capital in a process known as the Cull.

After arriving in the city, candidates are given a series of trials and, depending on their outcomes, welcomed into the Hand, the Eye, or the Heart of Alathor.

To some, being a candidate is an honor, to others it is a death sentence; it is slavery or citizenship. Regardless of how they view their fate, every candidate knows that the true power of the realm is held in the Hand, watched over by the Eye, and kept in the Heart.
