The Seers of the Throne are a magical conspiracy. According to the orders, the Seers see themselves as servants of the Exarchs, the mages who conquered the Supernal Realms and now dictate the laws and shape of reality. While they are mages themselves, the Seers have decided to side with the Exarchs against the mages fighting for freedom from the Exarchs' edicts. The Seers believe that they must take action against the remaining mages, who might otherwise become powerful enough to ascend to the Supernal Realms and attempt to topple the Exarchs from their thrones. Broadly speaking, the Seers seek to suppress or gain control over magic, especially any that might grow to endanger their chosen lords.
In effect, the Seers believe that none have any real chance of standing against the Exarchs, and that the only rational decision is to bow down earlier and serve faithfully so that they may be rewarded once the Exarchs' victory is complete. It is unclear, however, if there actually is such a reward besides the benefits provided by the support and power provided by membership in the Seers. The Exarchs don't communicate with their self-styled servants except by visions that might just as well be the product of power-mad minds.
In modern times, every Exarch rules over a ministry that is, in turn, run by their Seer subordinates. Each ministry acts as a self sustaining hierarchy separate from the others, and often are in conflict with each other in hopes of attaining supremacy within the fallen world for their given master. This is usually the explanation for why the Seers have failed to destroy the Pentacle outright, as the infighting and mistrust among members limits their capabilities severely.
Hegemony - Ruled by the Unity, Exarch of Mind
Mammon - Ruled by the Chancellor, Exarch of Matter
Panopticon - Ruled by the Eye, Exarch of Space
Paternoster - Ruled by the Father, Exarch of Prime
Praetorian - Ruled by the General, Exarch of Forces
Seers are organized into discreet cells, called Pylons, which are reminiscent of the Pentacle cabals, although there is a stronger sense of hierarchy and political powerplay to be found.
Within a pylon, there are several positions that Seers can take up or be assigned to:
The Augur -- Leader of the pylon.
The Acolyte -- A member of the pylon chosen by the Augur as their second-in-command.
Dominus -- Keeper of an artifact important to the pylon.
Oligarch -- The one in charge of the pylon's resources.
Hoplite -- Seer focused on the security of the pylon and its territory.
Voice -- Ambassador and spokesperson for the pylon.
