The Wakiil is the highest ranked soldier within The Truthseekers. The Wakiil leads all field forces of the faction and has a large political say in all military operations. While the wakiil was not directly involved in the decision-making, his/her soverignity meant that he/she could single-handedly decide for the entirety of the faction, unless the majority spoke out against the wakiil.
Wakiils were originally implemented as a rank into the truthseekers around 1170, when the Alderas had recently arived at Cortus. This proved to be a crucial decision, when The Seer War erupted around 250 years later.
