Within the circle of Ixanian nobility, the Tazen is the foremost xaruk of the Imperium, often gaining the position through inheritance, though votes of no confidence, duels, or outright murder are also legitimate means of which to gain the office. The Tazen sits upon the Obsidian Throne, the symbolic icon of power within the Ixanian culture and politics, and holding the title means for one to hold the position of the most powerful ruler on Elysia; holding sway over the lives of some nearly 670 million fanatical subjects, and the most advanced military on the face of the planet. Often, the Tazen is an arbitrator of peace and an invoker of war, with few political enemies within his or her court to challenge their decisions.
