The Concordium is the rarely used governing body of the city, which brings together all eight of The City Fathers plus the military chiefs and leading merchants and dockmasters of Dortin. Its current composition includes Allandra Alaster, Cadiman Alaster, Holly Morgan, Little Bill, Massimo Arman, Portia Leigh, Silva Leigh, Theda Wesley, Thibideaux, and Timo Alaster, plus the eight patriarchs for a total of 18 members.
The Concordium was established as part of the peace deal that ended the most recent civil war in Dortin, just prior to the Northern War. It was thus put in place simultaneously with the whole structure of the current status quo, including The Watch, the rent system, and the principle of sovereign neighborhoods. The Concordium meets only to resolve crises and change the composition of The City Fathers, most recently when the Timmons family was replaced by the Armans.
