Factions and Groups > Boros
The Boros were one of the founding factions of Daernikan society. They were created by the First Charter, and were made up of two parts, the Legion and the Senate. The Boros represented secular life in Daernika. They were instrumental in fighting the Broken Spine Tribe post-Cataclysm, but were ultimately dissolved at the advent of the Boros Civil War.
The Boros were created by the First Charter in 1 FC. Over the next few centuries, they conquered all of Daernika, subjecting it to Boros rule. As time passed, relations between the Boros, the Sanctuary, and the Volucris Liga,grew tense, and the former two began to engage in a number of power struggles.
The Boros Legions proved instrumental in beating off a number of Broken Spine Tribe invasions following the Cataclysm. They also became involved in putting down the secessions and rebellions that spread following the secession of Norngard, until Caedis Scutum formed the Boros Empire.

The Boros Senate
The Boros Senate is made up of 500 members, all democratically elected in elections facilitated by the Boros Legion. Senators represent various Provinces, and each province receives a number of senators according to its proportional population, with a minimum of one. The symbol of the Boros Senate is a red rising sun.
The head of the Senate is the Protector of the State, a senator elected by the other members of the Senate for the entire duration they are in the Senate. The Protector of the State has veto power and some control over the Boros Legion.
