Apex Lords are Hibernarii who have evolved beyond corporeal form and recognition as once human. Of supreme power and longevity, they are the apex of Hibernarii evolution. Their current number is in the 100’s and yet they create the ruling class.
Many of the smaller High Hibernal Races have yet to produce a single Apex Lord, while the more significant Races or Factions may have produced a few dozen. Only one Apex Lord can represent a Faction on The Council.
Just below the Apex Lord ruling class is the Hibernal Technocracy. The larger size and ambitious nature of the Technocracy holds up the small elite class of Apex Lords. All new Apex Lords are chosen from among the Technocracy, with the occasional exception of a Crystal Artisan being elevated to this supreme status.
