The structure of the Agency as a whole is simplistic, and encompasses types from all over the Empire. From the newly joined Prospect; to the oldest Veterans; to Officers, and the Leaders of the Circle. All play a part in family that is the BrightStar.
Not all Sovereigns are fighters, some work within Agency businesses, others work in the field as support staff. The Agency is not a limited organization, it openly encourages advancement / expansion of occupational skills (with consideration to current responsibilities)
