Arch Lector Sult is the ruthless head of the King's Inquisition, and one of the most powerful men in The Union. He always wears an immaculate long white robes with a high collar, white gloves, and a ring with a huge purple stone. The Arch Lector despises commoners, and is fanatically devoted to maintaining what he sees as the natural order with the nobility on top, and is furious that common peasants have the cheek to demand any sort of rights. He loathes the merchant class in particular, like the Guild of Mercers, seeing commoners getting rich and challenging the nobles. This leads to a bitter rivalry with his colleague on the Closed Council, High Justice Marovia, a champion of the common man. They lead competing factions on the Closed Council that viciously fight over every subject, no matter how small.
