The Chancellor of the Magus Senate of Dalaran is the leader of the mage body within the City-State of Dalaran. The Office of the Chancellor directly oversees the Vice-Chancellor, Aetyleus the Elder, and the two often work together in order to ensure both the Senate body and the Inner-Council are effective in their duties and decisions. Salazar Demes is serving as the current Chancellor. Both the Chancellor and the Vice-Chancellor are considered members of the Cabinet of Ministers.
Senate Sessions are the longest standing tradition of the Magus Senate of Dalaran. The Senate convenes weekly to hold court within the Violet Citadel to address current issues, hear proposals, and debate the course of action the Magus Senate takes in general. Anyone may attend Senate sessions, where they are encouraged to speak their views and participate in voting regardless of station. All members of the Senate are encouraged to participate and let their voices be heard. However, barring special occasions, the only people who may speak on the Senate floor from outside the Senate are ambassadors and those who have permission of the Speaker of the Senate. All of the Senate Sessions are public record.
The Senate has several ministries that all work to further the goals of the Kirin Tor. Any member can join the various ministries, and the departments within.
The Chancellery is the combination of several smaller groups and factions led directly by the Chancellor Salazar Demes. It includes the Chancellor's Office, the Vice-Chancellor's Office, and a number of other supporting offices that make running Dalaran possible.
The Ministry of Academics is the largest ministry in the senate. It caters to the Kirin Tor's goals of collecting knowledge and sharing that knowledge to train magi. The Ministry is lead by Minister Aetyleus the Elder. It is split into a few different departments, the Antonidas Academy is the Senate's education department. The professors of the academy are responsible for teaching classes on a wide range of topics. They also approve new professors and apprenticeships. Learning is the most important thing to the students and staff of the academy. Classes are common events in the Senate and provide a good chance for socializing. Many professors even allow non-members to sit in on their classes. The Ministry has several independent departments dedicated to a single area of study and research such as the Engineering Department and the Alchemy Department. This department is also responsible for a great deal of research and development of spells, magical items, and various magical histories and theories.
The Ministry of Defense is lead by Minister of Defense Candun Greysong. The largest department is the Battle Mage Corps which is charged with protecting Dalaran from threats abroad. They often work outside of the city on missions; the first ones to arrive at any battle and the last ones to leave. The Corps is split further into smaller specialized units like the Scouting Corp. The Battle Magi can usually be found training in the Violet Stand. Occasionally the Battle Magi will act as bodyguards for members of the cabinet when they are in foreign lands. The Defense Ministry also works jointly with the Ministry of Academics for research and development purposes.
The Ministry of State Security, led by Minister Elberich Haltring, is responsible for policing and security within the Magocracy of Dalaran and its territories, the investigation and enforcement of Dalaran’s laws, counter-intelligence, foreign intelligence, and other responsibilities.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, or MoFA, is one of the ministries of the Magus Senate of Dalaran and is responsible for developing and carrying out the foreign policy of Dalaran and international relations.The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is lead by Minister Zanbor Emerson.
