Seal of the Regent

The term Regent is used in many monarchies across the Galaxy, but in recent years it is mostly known for signifying the closest advisor and direct successor of the Viceroy of the Trade Federation.



In the traditional sense of the word, a Regent is a high-ranking advisor to a monarch, who in some extreme situations is called upon to assume the throne. In the Trade Federation, despite it not being a monarchy, the title has a similar purpose. The Regent title is a new addition to the Federation's rank structure, being introduced by Viceroy Jacob Jansen. The purpose of this rank is to enable the Viceroy to pick his own successor. The Regent is, so far, the only Cabinet member chosen solely by the Viceroy, without consent from the Cabinet.

Role of the Regent

Appointed by the Viceroy personally, the Regent is the first in line of succession for the Viceroy of the Trade Federation. He has full authority in the Federation, being second only to the Viceroy, and would automatically assume his position if he were to fall. Although he is not considered Second-in-Command, a role fulfilled by the Duceroy, he is the most senior and trusted advisor to the Viceroy. His many responsibilities are determined by the Viceroy, and thus may vary depending on the Viceroy's wishes and needs. To hold the position of Regent is the greatest honor one could recieve, although very few have done so, and serves as a sign that the member appointed has the full trust of the Viceroy.
