The Emperor of the Dravimosian Empire is the ultimate head of state of the Dravimosian Empire, as well as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces.
The Emperor is elected from a host of candidates from various Dravimos royal houses. Apart from this, there are several other traits that each candidate must have in order to enter the election.
- Be at least twenty years of age.
- Be free of any disease or affliction.
- Be of good reputation and sound mind.
Upon being noticed as a possible contender to the Imperial throne, the candidates are voted on by the Conclave of the Imperial Senate. This will decide which individual and royal house will control the Empire.
During the consideration of the election, candidates can argue in favor of themselves in almost anyway possible, apart from killing their competitors. As such, imperial elections can be tense and violent and can last for months. Despite this, Emperors typically hold elections towards the latter part of their lives to ensure a smooth succession.
Once a candidate is selected he or she is coronated on the first day of the next year, even though his or her term may begin well before that. The candidate sits upon the Cyrstal Throne in Idaltroas as he or she is decorated by the Archon with the unique crown and armor made for each emperor.
The Emperor is in charge of the military of the Dravimosian Empire and is responsible for leading its forces into battle. The Emperor can be exempt from such service under certain conditions, as listed below:
- The Emperor is no longer mentally fit to fight.
- The Emperor is not currently able to fight at the present time.
- The Emperor has no current heirs.
