The Emeritus believe in a the ability of any individual to be able to prove themselves through their service. Whereas at first glance the hierarchical structure seems feudal, favour is granted to those who can show initiative and talent when it is needed most.
They also shy away mostly from the use of magic and machines, believing these to be shortcuts to greatness, your worth is only to be measured by what you can do with your own hands. Swords, shields and bows are among their weapons of choice, using skillful manoeuvres to outplay their more advantaged foes.
This means that they have almost no use for deistones allowing them to form better relationships with the Diogeni than the Sortis and the Divitiae.
