THE TRIUMVIRI - THE PILLARS
The Three Triumvir (individual pillars) that form the framework for every witherward are Scientem, Proelium, and Diplomaticum. Each Triumvir is overseen by two Collective Chorus Triumvirit Deducendae, and headed by their respective Vox Triumvir (Ministre Plénipotentiaire/Consul).
The Vox Triumvir (plenipotentiary ) is invested with the full power of independent action on behalf of the Collective Chorus. These Vox Triumvir oversee their individual pillar as they best see fit according to the mandates or demands of the Collective Chorus. Each Vox Triumvir is directly connected to the Collective Chorus' cybersnaptic body.
Each Pillar is comprised of multiple Academies. The overarching term "academy" is misleading in that it does not denote a place of learning; it is in reference to a collection of knowledge relating to a specific group of disciplines that intertwine with each other. Each Academy is governed by a Praetor appointed by its plenipotentiary. The proper term of address for the praetor is Madam, Sir, or Knev (gender-inclusive species).
TRIUMVIR SCIENTEM - THE FIRST PILLAR
The primary Pillar and the one most occluded from public view, the Triumivr Scientem is responsible for the development, implementation and advancement of science and technology within the Witherward. It works in direct support of the Greater Nifidium Convocation's mission. It is the most complex of all Pillars, beholden to no other Pillar or Academy yet responsible for providing the research and mechanisms to keep the society running. It is sometimes referred to as the "Silent Pillar" given that hasn't any public voice.

This academy, as with all witherwards, functions only at an Eleventh Tier or lower level. It is responsible for justice and the criminal court system.
TRIUMVIR DIPLOMATICUM - THE THIRD PILLAR
The Third Pillar is the largest of the three pillars and is often depicted as the base of the triangle. It concerns itself with diplomatic relations with foreign nations, but also serves to hold the witherward's interior in place and running like clockwork.
