The First Escort is one of three sides to a Queens triangle, substituting Consort. The other two sides are the Steward and the Master of the Guard.

Position[]

The place of First Escort can only be filled by a male of the Blood who agrees to a contract with a Queen. Once in this contract he is a primary member of the Queen's First Circle and is thus duty bound to her rule - though the breaking of the contract, while not common, is not unheard of.

Duties[]

The duties of the First Escort are literally to provide an escort for the Queen of his territory and to whom he has a contract with. He may also stand in the Queens place as something like an Ambassador when dealing with other Territories and acts somewhat as a business liason.

The First Escort is sometimes be intermingled with the Consort position, which holds the same responsibilities save one difference. The Consort is considered a lover, where as a male who is only named First Escort is not obligated to supliment those needs. 

The Dark Court[]

In the Dark Court Lucivar Yaslana stood as the First Escort to Jannelle Angelline until Daemon Sadi was deemed sane enough to take up her Consort position.
