Summer Iron Adjutant
Sometimes known as Auditor, Bailiwick or Seneschal (all with “Iron” preceding the title), this role is actually a rather estimable one within the ranks of the Crimson. The Iron Adjutant’s job is to function as the right-hand-man to the Court’s royal ruler. While this sounds like a subservient position (and in some freeholds it is), it also means that a lot of the day-to-day administration of Court business is handled by the Adjutant. The Adjutant is the Queen’s proxy; his word is firm. Or, as some say it, “his word is iron.” This ultimately grants the Adjutant a pretty hefty measure of power, especially in freeholds where the king is either uninterested in all the petty details or is addled with age or frailties. The ruler needs to be careful with the Adjutant, though. More than one has grown tired of the abuse and advantage taken, and usurps the throne (perhaps leading a junta against the Queen).
