A Prothete (Arvonnic prōtetis), also known as the Octus (Arvonnic auktatāws or simply tāws) is the highest cleric of Foriscism and the leader of a Covenant, the largest level of institution within the faith. Being allowed the most esoteric wisdoms of the Cleptagodria, they are supposedly the only Foriscians privy towards immediate clarity and transcension. Unlike Amatorian clergy, there is no "arch-prothete" to rule over all Forisciandom, all of them working in concert as a synod (Prōtetjawaitjan). Prothetes are taken from the most exemplary Goteans, who are taken in as apprentices and selected heirs of a preceding Prothete.
