The Kyorl’solenurn has a unique clan structure. The various Templar, Inquisitors and Wardens all serve within one of a number of orders, each run by Judicator. The cabinet that these Judicators compose of is the true power behind the clan, electing the Ill’haress and advising her on how to lead. And though it is ultimately the Ill’haress who makes the decisions that move the clan forward she is all too aware that the Judicators have the authority to replace her if she veers too far from their goals. In short, she is the head of all Orders.

There are at least seven orders in the clan of which six have been named: the Order of the Twin Eyes, the Order of the Holy Eye, the Order of Serenity, the Order of Truth, the Order of Purity and the Order of the Enforcers. The known differences between most of these orders are minute with a wide exception to the Order of Serenity. This particular order is based out of the clan’s sole surface temple, and its influence beyond this territory is negligible. In the absence of the martial and political turmoil of [[Chel'el'sussoloth]] the members of this order have embraced solely the core aspects of the Kyorl’solenurn doctrine without the additional restrictive mores that plague the faith below. Visitors on pilgrimage to the temple are often stunned by the tranquility that permeates it and humbled by the honest hospitality of its residents.
