Summer Arrayer of Distant Thunder
An arrayer is said to have a “commission of array,” meaning that he can canvass the freehold’s inhabitants — anybody from the loftiest Spring Court socialite to the lowliest ensorcelled — to drum them up for war. As the storm approaches (be it metaphorical or literal), the Arrayer’s job is to draft those outside the Summer Court to fight. It’s not always necessary, of course; sometimes the Crimson Court can handle a threat easily, though even then the Arrayer must reach out to those in Summer if they’re otherwise hard to reach. But when the threats threaten to overwhelm the Crimson Court (they can’t handle everything, much as they’d like to), the Arrayer is the one who must convince, threaten or cajole others to leap headlong into the fray.
