The Insularii are a group of scholars, geographers, and historians. They of the foremost experts in philosophy, and sometimes contracted out by the races to teach prominent members of each society. While members of the Insularii work within the realm and authority of the Highwayman, it’s not unusual for their members to work alone, petitioning racial leaders for freedoms of movement and investigation in their territory. Unlike the Dyrhall, the Insularii have internal politics. Prominent members are under no obligation to work only on the orders of the Highwayman, and some rumors of Insularii involvement in supernatural activity is well-known. While magic is not openly advertised from their ranks, the Insularii tread cautiously in experimentation and the manipulation of nature in order to enhance their ability to record and understand history. The power and influence of the Insularii should not be underestimated.
