The Ferdahl is the office of the leader of the Elothean people. The Ferdahl resides in the Great Tower at the center of Shard.

Elothean Studies

From Elothean Studies: Elothean society is many-tiered and complex. There is one supreme leader -- called the Ferdahl -- who is viewed as the ruler of the Elothean Houses, and then below him or her is "the Three" -- the political leader, the seer judge, and the protectorate. The political leader deals with all matters foreign and interior, the seer judge oversees the laws of the land, and the protectorate commands the armies. The Ferdahl does not rest on his or her laurels, however. They often command the armies alongside the protectorate, write laws, and perform ambassadorial functions. If the reign does not go well, it is the Three, not the Ferdahl, who are to blame, and it is rare that an Os Dira'ora is accused or put on trial. In the history of the Elothean, the Ferdahl have committed ritual suicide or gone into exile -- turning their diadem over to an heir -- before dishonoring the Supreme Title.
