- Main article: Government of the Aqua Defense Initiative
Lord High Sentinel
As defined by the Charter of ADI, the Lord High Sentinel, or LHS, is the ruler of the Initiative, and has the final authority on all governing matters. The Lord High Sentinel has the ability to appoint or remove Lords as he sees fit, and add or remove Ministries for the functionality of the alliance. The Lord High Sentinel answers to three Arbiters, who will be able to check the LHS should they find that a decision of the Lord High Sentinel is not in the best interest of the alliance. If the Lord High Sentinel steps down from the position, he or she may choose his or her successor. The Lord High Sentinel may also be removed by a 3/4 alliance-wide vote. In this case, the Hall of Sentinels will decide the new Lord High Sentinel with a 3/4 vote.
The Aqua Defense Initiative has three Arbiters. Similar to the triumvirate system used in many alliances, they serve as a check to the Lord High Sentinel, and may question any decision made by the Lord High Sentinel with a 2/3 vote and bring it to the Hall of Sentinels for resolution. Of the Arbiters, there is a Judicator, who serves as the senior Arbiter. The Judicator serves as the second in command of the alliance, and will take command during any extended absence of the Lord High Sentinel.
Hall of Sentinels
The Hall of Sentinels acts as the advisory board for the Lord High Sentinel, and may elevate whoever they choose to join their ranks with a 3/4 vote. The Lord High Sentinel may veto any appointment. The members of the Hall of Sentinels are referred to as "Sentinels" and are listed in the box to the right.
