Other noble families are arranged in ranks according to bloodlines, raw magical power, and territorial holdings. The word of the monarch is law. As aes sĂ­dhe are immortal, transitions in power often occur as the result of violent death on the part of the predecessor, or on rare occasions when the previous monarch grows bored and retires.
