Normidia maintains a well-trained and well-equipped intelligence and security bureau. This organization is known as the Varakai (pronounced Var-a-KYE). It is an ancient Irenni word which translates roughly as "seeing and unseen"). These men and women operate as spies and conduct a wide range of operations. They monitor criminal activities within Tykron, investigate mysteries and crimes and spy on organizations and governments throughout the realms. Agents of the Varakai often infiltrate organizations and foreign governments and send that information back to the headquarters of the Varakai in Tykron. However, Varakai agents do sometimes carry out special assignments such as a theft or assassination. On occasion, the Varakai works with the Wardens when their duties overlap, such as protecting the king or tracking down a fugitive.
The Varakai is led by a reclusive noble by the name of Cellar Gedren. He answers directly to the King.
This relatively young organization was formed in 2613 CY. It was formed to aid the King track political and military developments across Ithria. Although the organization has only been in existence for a century, it has already accomplished a great deal.
The Varakai are chiefly concerned with protecting Normidian officials and interests. They are fanatically loyal to King Drachens and his personal security supercedes all other concerns. This group will go to great lengths to accomplish any assigned mission. Assassination, poison, intimidation and kidnapping are all acceptable tools.
As a branch of the Normidian government, the Varakai are allied with and sometimes work in conjunction with the Normidia military and navy. Virtually any non-Normidian group is a potential threat and could be considered an enemy. Although the Varakai do not actively make war against anyone.
The Varakai employ both men and women and a variety of races. Joining this group is difficult and those who wish to join are tested extensively. Training is extensive. Some agents are magically altered to infiltrate another race. The Varakai are renowned for the ability to bypass security and get at protected information or individuals. They are extremely well trained at stealth, deception, slight of hand, bluffing, thinking on their feet, and, when necessary, combat. A typical Varakai agent speaks five languages.
All members within the Varakai use a rank system which parallels that of the Normidian military. Officer, Captain, Commander, General.
