The Quincy Order
“United We Stand.”Creed
The Quincy Order exists to unite all the disparate Quincy families under a single banner. It has arisen after centuries of organized barbarism and organized genocide from the Hollows and the Shinigami, and exists to provide a bulwark against their machinations. United as one, the Quincy work to provide protection, safety, and unity to their brothers and sisters, and to the earth itself. Their ultimate goal is to make earth a safe haven where neither Shinigami nor Hollow dare set foot.
The Order is open to all Quincy, both pure-blood and half-blood, and will even welcome Humans who wish to learn their ways into the fold.
"Queen- Freyleif Jökulsdóttir"
As the head of The Quincy Order, the Monarch is endowed with complete powers over the mission of the Quincy, their purpose, and the structure of the order itself. They are beholden to none and are obligated solely by the need to keep their people safe against the forces that work to undermine them. The position of Monarch is determined strictly through succession, where a named heir or a Sternritter, beginning from Asch and descending down the list as required, are chosen to take the throne.
“Sternritter Asch - Open."
“Sternritter Birith - Aodh O'Mongan”
“Sternritter Khen - Amelia Vietti-Thompson”
"Sternritter Thorn - Erek Blackmore"
The order of the Sternritter is the pinnacle of the Quincy. All Sternritter are hand chosen by the Monarch to serve as both generals and advisors. They lead the order into battle at times of war and maintain the stability and safety of the Quincy in times of peace. A Sternritter is often assigned a specialization or takes one up of their own accord, and claims knights to serve beneath them to further these pursuits. This can be as simple as a two man project to large scale military or research branches that span dozens of knights.
All Sternritter are given a title, such as Khen or Thorn, based off the Marcomannic runes. These titles are merely based upon the order they join; the Sternritter and all are considered equal, save for one — Sternritter Asch. Sternritter Asch is equal to all the other Sternritters when it comes to disputes, but they hold the honor of being the Monarch’s successor. They act as Regent if the Monarch is indisposed, and if the Monarch passes away they inherit the crown. To be Asch is the greatest honor a monarch can bestow.

"Sofia Kühn" Squire
The core of The Quincy Order, almost all Quincy in The Order hold this rank. Knights are often assigned to serve underneath a specific Sternritter, acting as their understudies and personal agents as they work to further both the order itself and whatever personal projects the Sternritter is focused upon. These projects can be anything from military endeavors to research and development, depending on the nature of the Sternritter’s duties.

[Active] Sternritter Aodh O'Mongan has issued an Order that all Quincy-Shinigami interaction must be reported by the Quincy involved, in writing*, to all Sternritters and the Queen immediately with as much detail as possible in order to retain solid records of all interactions that could lead to war.
[Active] Sternritter Erek Blackmore has issued an Order that all peaceful interactions with the other factions should be reported to him and the Queen in writing* immediately with as much detail as possible in order to hopefully create more solid foundations for peace-talks in the present and future.
[Active] Queen Freyleif has issued an Order that Natalie Forge is to be considered the Head of the Quincy Armory, as well as Combat-Based Holy Artifacts. She holds complete jurisdiction in the Armory, only to be over-ridden by a Sternritter or above, and has Sternritter-level access to Holy Artifacts in order to assist in creation and research. Despite this she does not hold a true "Position" in either the Sphere of Defense (Which holds jurisdiction over the Armory) or the Sphere of Knowledge (Which holds jurisdiction over Holy Artifacts), she has simply been given added authority and responsibility to work closely with these two Spheres instead. If this trust is found misplaced, these privileges can and will be removed.
*Writing can be done in the way of Private Messages to the individuals in question, or through a public post here in the Quincy Order page. If the second option is done be sure to tag those involved and place it in a spoiler in order to not flood the primary page with walls of text.
