The best of the Concord’s servants are ordained as Concord Administrators, easily identified by the tri-staff that signifies their office. Trained to embody the best that the Concord has to offer, Administrators bear a heavy burden, as reflected by their motto: ‘Our duty is peace’
The Administrators’ history extends back to the first days of planetary colonization in the Sol system. Concerned about conflict between the multinational settlements, the superpowers of the day agreed to create the United Administrators in 2073. Controlled by an independent organization, the Administrators preserved order during humanity’s era of peace. Eventually, though, the new colonial empires and the strains of interstellar politics grew beyond the power of the Administrators to control.
With the Treaty of Concord, the Administrators were reborn. The Concord now oversees the Administrators and commissions small groups to oversee the lawless edges of humanity. By Concord law, Administrators are authorized to arrest, convict, and sentence criminals out in the lonely depths of space. Most of the tone, Administrators bring miscreants to a public trial, it’s good publicity, and it demonstrates the price of breaking Concord law. Sometimes, though, Administrators are left with little choice but to execute summary punishment.
The Galactic Concord prides itself on a rigorous training regimen that results in few abuses of power. Applicants for the honor of Administrator duty are numerous, a result of both Concordans’ willingness to support the peace and the natural ambition for such a respected position in interstellar society. Fewer lhan 1 in 100 of the applicants are invited to attend Ascension, the college of the Administrators on Concord.
