Zealot - (Special Rank - Appointed by Grand Vizier and Archon)
This rank is appointed to those who prove valuable to both the militia as a whole and the Order division itself. The appointee to this rank usually fits a persona of being very eccentric, hot-headed, dedicated, and rambunctious. This rank holds as much power as a High Arcanist, and retains command powers as such, however some prefer to be "lone wolves". A zealot must know justice, as Zealots are the guard force of the Yew Order. They are the punishers of the unjust and are incredibly loyal soldiers of Yew.
Uniform: Determined by the Grand Vizier and Archon

They enforce the chain of command, saluting, and dress code. This is the top non-officer rank and this veteran can be an advisor to the Archon on important issues.
Requirements: Field Command 1, Drill 2, Recommendation by Archon and Grand Vizier
Uniform: All Leather Armor (Brown), Choice of Hat or Leather Cap (Light Blue), Robe (Light Blue), Half Apron (Navy Blue), Boots (Navy Blue)
Archon: The Archon is the right hand man to the Division Commander. He holds most of the powers of the Grand Vizier and assumes his position in his absence. The Archon needs training not as he already knows all the virtues through and through. Most times he will not be bothered by Enlisted ranks with questions but will instead instruct his Magus to take care of the issue. The caster is now trusted without question.
