Ch212

Elder (Kor. 장로) is the title given to the people with highest authority within the Union. The history of the Elders is unclear but it is safe to assume that the first Elders were likely the founders of The Union/Organization. All of the Elders can operate independently without oversight from the others, as long as certain guidelines are observed. At present, it is known that individual Elders, without approval from the group as a whole, are forbidden from causing the Union to be exposed to the outside world, attacking each other, or overtly antagonizing / engaging the noble race in battle.

However, although each Elder is said to be independent, there does seem to be a system of hierarchy or ranks within the group. Dr. Crombel, the 13th Elder and newest member of the group, is not treated as a full member and is bluntly told that he does not have the right to know certain Union secrets. The lower numbered Elders seem to be older, more powerful, and more influential than the higher numbered Elders. Ironically, although the Union is sometimes referred to as a human organization and some of the Elders even claim that the era of the nobles is now over, the lower numbered Elders all appear to be supernatural and only the higher numbered, and thus more junior, Elders are humans.

Also, there seems to be some rivalry between each Elders' group. As revealed, the 2nd Elder's minions (i.e. The 5th Elder, Kentas, other werewolves etc.) opposed the 4th Elder's group (Roctis, 9th Elder, Ignes, 12th Elder, 8th Elder, Anti-Clan Leader Weapons etc.) until their destruction. His group also opposes the 1st Elder's group, which is now the 1st Elder himself, the 3rd Elder and Dr. Crombel. 

Overview

There is a total of 13 Elders, all of whom have been revealed. There are three former clan leaders within the ranks of the Elders that have been revealed so far, all of whom betrayed the previous Lord and Rai: the 4th Elder, Roctis Kravei; the 6th Elder, Urokai Agvain; and the 7th Elder, Zarga Siriana, who killed the previous leader of the Loyard Clan. Additionally, the 4th Elder is also contracted with the 12th Elder. Within the Elders, there are also werewolves. The 5th Elder is a werewolf and, at present, the only female Elder. Though every Elder is supposed to be independent, the 5th Elder also serves the 2nd Elder, who is revealed to be the Lord of all werewolves. The 8th Elder is a modified human, created as an anti-clan leader weapon. The 9th Elder, an elderly man, appears to be the chief scientist of the Union and is responsible for experimenting and modifying the 8th Elder and the 12th Elder. The 10th Elder and 11th Elder are both modified humans. The 12th Elder, an unnamed high-ranking military officer, is a powerful modified human and contracted to the 4th Elder. He commands the 8th Fleet, his elite team of bodyguards, Cerberus, and Dr. Aris. The DA-5 group also works for the 12th Elder, although their direct superior was Dr. Aris. Lastly, the newly appointed 13th Elder, Dr. Crombel, is a top researcher known for his genius (which he secretly gained from the knowledge in Frankenstein's journal). He commands the Assassination Squad and is also, secretly, an extremely powerful modified human himself.

Promotion to Elder Rank

The process of becoming an Elder is still unclear. However, it has been shown that it doesn't require being an Enhanced Human or a being with superhuman strength to become one, as the Elders seem unaware of Dr. Crombel's powers and there are several nobles within their ranks. However, it has been made clear that proficiency in at least one area, such as Dr. Crombel's human enhancement and general research ability, is required to become an Elder. It has also been suggested that the time the Elder has been promoted is also their title, e.g. Dr. Crombel, being the most recently promoted to Elder rank, is the 13th Elder. The degree of influence current Elders have on the selection process is also unclear, however, it is known that the 4th and 9th Elders supported the 12th Elder's ascendancy and the 4th's disapproval resulted in Ignes not being promoted to an Elder.
