The quaesitores are the judges of the Order of Hermes. They are responsible for investigating breaches of the Code of Hermes, bringing violations to tribunal and ensuring that tribunal meetings are conducted fairly and in accordance with the Code.

House Guernicus

Guernicus the Founder was adamant in the need for a strong set of laws to keep the Order from fracturing under the wieght of feuds between magi, covenants and Tribunals. The first magi to adopt the title of quaesitores were Guernicus' filii, and the overwhelming majority of quaesitores are of this House.

By tradition, however, the quaesitores count at least one member of each House among their number. This is supposed to prevent House Guernicus from becoming an oligarchy with unwarranted power over the rest of the Order. By the same token, not all members of the House become quaesitores. Non-quaesitor Guernicus magi tend to follow their founder's interest in terram magic and the rituals of the ancient Cult of Mercury.

Notable Quaesitores

Currently, the only quaesitor in the Loch Leglean Tribunal is Whitburh Firthowebba, maga ex Guernicus. Whitburh is one of the senior magi of Horsingas, which is one of the reasons the covenant is able to pursue its raiding activities to the extent that it does.
