||The Exarch, or Exarchs, are those who are appointed by a Highguard Chapter as their leader(s) as determined by the Chapter’s creed, or by embodying its principles.
||You only have 1 per chapter (usually) so there are only a few of these. But that’s kind of how it’s meant to be.
||Guardians form the core of Highborn military, taking on a range of roles in defence of their Chapters, and in prosecuting vigilant warfare.
||There are a decent amount of guardians. Probably the backbone of our fighting forces
||The Unconquered are Highguard’s elite guerilla troops. They are prone to using ruthless tactics, even operating behind enemy lines, to destroy the enemy’s capacity to make war.
||There are a fair number of Unconquered in the nation, but they are the least populace of the three warrior archetypes
||Cataphracts are Highguard’s elite heavy warriors, who once rode horses into battle but who, in modern times, represent a resolute and unbreakable wall of steel.
||There are quite a few cataphracts. They are the second most common warrior archetype.
||Wayfarers are Highborn priests with a long-standing tradition of teaching the truth of The Way to the ignorant, and seeking out Examplars and Paragons born in other lands.
||There are only a few wayfarers in the nation that I’m aware of. Maybe one of the least represented archetypes.
||Highborn Inquisitors are zealous defenders of The Way from those that would threaten it, whether mortal or supernatural.
||There’s not a huge amount of inquisitors in the nation. Possibly the least represented archetype.
|Steward of the dead
||Stewards of the Dead dedicate their lives to preserving the legacies of the worthy. This includes the interring of remains as well as the preservation of legacies and tales.
||Generally each chapter has 1 or 2 Stewards, but there is also an entire chapter made up of Stewards
||Magisters are the master magicians of Highguard, often with an affinity for Winter Magic. They shape magic using movement, sound and the chime of bells.
||There are quite a few magisters
||Benefactors are affluent Highborn merchants and tradesfolk who do not pursue wealth for its own sake, but who sponsor individuals, great works and endeavours.
||As with exarchs, each chapter generally only has 1 benefactor, so they are by design quite rare
||Archivists are a unique class of Highborn scholar dedicated to preserving the essence, or truth, of history, over and above accounts and evidence that may seek to undermine that truth.
||There aren’t a huge number of archivists to my knowledge. Generally each chapter only has 1, but that’s not a hard and fast rule
