Fraternities are groups of enchanters who hold the same viewpoints, and band together to make their voices heard.
- Aequitarians are the dominant faction in the College of Magi and in the Ferelden’s Circle. They promote a moderate and popular viewpoint that mages must use their abilities in a responsible and ethical manner, regardless of the Chantry law. Aequitarians believe that all mages should help people and follow a set of rules and ideals. Known Aequitarians include Edmonde, Regalyan D’Marcall, also known as Galyan, Irving, Rhys, Sweeney, Torrin and Wynne. By 9:40 Dragon they are represented in the College of Magi by Rhys.
- Isolationists are a small group of mages who wish to separate themselves from the templars, the Chantry and even the civilization altogether, both in order to practice magic without scrutiny and to ensure their powers do not negatively affect “ordinary” folk. Niall is the only Isolationist seen thus far, though he merely sympathized and did not consider himself one of them.
- Libertarians desire the Circle to become an autonomous, self-regulating order without Chantry involvement at any level. While many Libertarians advocate the use of peaceful means to ensure their independence, such as a bill of secession they proposed to the College of Magi in 9:31 Dragon, at least one subgroup, the Resolutionists, are willing to pursue violent means to their ends. Libertarians count Uldred, Adrian and Jeannot among their number. By 9:40 Dragon they are represented in the College of Magi by Adrian.
- Loyalists follow the Chantry’s word as it is written. They are often called “Chantry apologists” for accepting the Chantry and the templars ever-present observation. Keili is an example of loyalist ideals, though she is not an enchanter and thus cannot join a fraternity.
- Lucrosians prioritize the accumulation of wealth, with the gaining of political influence a close second. They are few in number.
I tried to conceptualize the Fraternities whose ideas could not always have clear limit with each others.
Fraternities only apply to Enchanters. But if we accept the concepts, the ideas, the movements they generate, almost all people in Thedas have usually a position. Even Apostates.
Aequitarians are extended over all the quarter because you can find chars who are pro-Circle, but they can or cannot accept the Chantry.
Loyalists accept blindly Andraste’s words from the Chantry, but you can find some chars whose development along the games could be a little more “Aequitarian”. That is why I put the L letter in the other quarter.
Lucrosians are just concerned about their wealth, so they could support the Circle or the Chantry according with the profits they can receive.
Libertarians usually want to keep the structure of the Circle, but controling it by themselves. It seems the idea most feared by Fenris. Few chars don’t like the idea of the Circle itself. And this is when the limit among Libertarians and their subgroup, called Resolutionists, is not clear.
Isolationists are anti-all, they just want the world let them alone. For that reason they are almost outside the picture.
