La liste officielle de toutes les positions des magistratures de jade et d'Emeraude (les status, par contre, sont de moi) :
Emerald Champion (SR 9,0), Jade Champion (SR 9,0)
Ruby Champion (SR 6,5)
He is the revered sensei of the Emerald Dojo, sensei to the Emerald magistrates and master sensei of the Emerald Champion.
Karo of the Emerald Champion, Karo of the Jade champion (SR 8,0)
The champion’s chief advisor, he can act as the Champion (it happened at least once) during the time between a champion’s death and the next Emerald Championship.
Hatamoto of the Emerald Champion (SR 6,0)
In charge of a district of the Imperial city, he serves as chief magistrate and judge.
1st magistrate (SR 6,0)
Position created by Iweko, he is the second in command of the Emerald champion. He is charged to oversee the imperial magistrates in the colonies as the ceremonial head when the Governor doesn’t want to attend. Contrary to the champion, who can have no skill in law, the 1st magistrate must be an expert in all matters of laws to compensate any shortcoming in the Emerald Champion’s skills.
Imperial city karo of the Emerald Champion (SR 5,0 +)
In charge of justice in the Imperial city, they act as city magistrates and Emerald magistrates.
Judges (SR 5,0 +)
Judges are experienced and seasoned Emeralds Magistrates who siege in public courts (those courts can be outside, the only two things required is a comfortable place for the judge to sit and an uncomfortable one for the culprit to sit). They are to sentence criminals the lower rank Emeralds Magistrates couldn’t sentence themselves or weren’t allowed to. The lower status magistrates are charged of doing the investigation.
Emerald or Jade magistrate (SR 4,5+)
Bounty hunters (SR 4,0)
The Tsuruchi family can nominate a limited number of bounty hunters who have nearly the same authority as Emerald Magistrates in the pursuit of criminals who are wanted by the Emerald Magistrate. Others bounty hunters aren’t unheard of but really rare.
Not a position, just a subset of magistrates, a brotherhood of former Topaz Champions.
Mondai-ketsu (SR 4,5 +)
This office was not renewed after the destruction of Otosan Uchi. Mostly formed of Fox clan samourai (trained in many clans to be impartial), this special unit answered only directly to the Emperor and was sent on matters not suited for Emerald Magistrates. Their actions were the direct will of the Emperor, and they marked their short history (they were created 40 years before the Scorpion clan coup) with solving those problems with violence. They didn’t had any official charter describing their missions and were used at the Emperor’s whim when he felt that magistrates would take too long to deal with the problem or the problem be at the limits of the magistrates’ charter. With only the Emerald Champion or a clan champion able to countermand their judgements, they were used by Hantei XXXVIII as a weapon to terrorize his enemies and show the wreath of the Emperor.
