The Zero Hour, The Hands, and The Grandfathers

The Wheel of Time is governed by the Hands of Time.  There are fifty-one Hands, fifty normal Hands representing various aspects of Time and the Time industry, and one Zero Hour to oversee the Hands.

Yeah.  Sorry.  Since the coup, only Cassius and Rifun are in charge, with their guards and the Grandfathers (mostly Borelians) under them.  And...that's not changing in the foreseeable future.

Stay tuned for more updates.

The Zero Hour

The Zero Hour is less commonly known as the Hand of the Hands, representing the interests of the Hands and the Time industry at large.  While the Hands typically make rules and pass laws in assembly, the Zero Hour has the authority to override them absolutely.  During petitions, if a vote is called for, the Zero Hour does not vote unless there is a tie that cannot be resolved.  However, he also has the power to override the vote absolutely.

The Zero Hour is a directly-elected position.

The Hands of Time

The Hands of Time are elected every seventeen Earth-side years.  They represent population or specific interest groups rather than geographical locations.

The Grandfathers

The Grandfathers are the keeper of the court system, playing the role of judge, jury, and, in many cases, executioner.  Their preferred employee type is a Borelian, for their absolute lethality.
