The Pater Dios
The Pater Dios was founded under mysterious circumstances around the time of the Dawning, and the mere fact that they may have existed before the Dawning has lead some to conclude that they were somehow instrumental in it. Regardless of this debate, the Pater Dios have emerged since the cataclysm as the single most powerful organization in the Lands.
Headquartered in the city of Zenith, the Pater Dios are run by a man known only by his title, The Sun King. This title has been passed on for generations of different Kings, all of whom are chosen secretly and give up their own personal identities when they are chosen to be the Sun King. Further establishing this anonymity, the Sun King is never seen in public without his Golden Lion Crown, the mask of which obscures his face entirely.
