The Kiith Mrevhoqq'ghi serves as the Diplomatic Corps of the Rihannsu Stelam Empire, all inter-stellar communications and negotiations should be channeled through this Legion. In March 1997, the Kiith Mrevhoqq'ghi went through several changes, the most notable of which were the creation of the Kiith Auethnen and Bresasam d'Dypshj Diplomatic Colony.
The Kiith Auethnen division of the legion consists of past officers who have made significant contributions to the Legion, however are unable to carry on in their current duties. Members of the Kiith Auethnen have no official standing in the Legion, however serve as advisors, hence the term 'Auethnen,' to the Kiith Officers. The Auethnen do not have the authority to negotiate interstellar compacts or represent the Empire without the express permission of the hru'Llaudh.
The Bresasam d'Dypshj Diplomatic Colony was designed and constructed under the supervision of hru'Llaudh Khoteth tr'Riuurren and his Staff, Vere'kala t'Aieme and Sarideth tr'Aieme. The premise of the Colony was to provide a neutral point for ambassadors from all Empires to meet and conduct interstellar negotiations. Each Empire has an assigned ambassador and embassy upon the planet and are under the protection of the hru'Llaudh and Rihannsu Tal Shiar. Part of the colony's charter was that all Empires agreed to never promote or engage in any hostile acts upon the planet or en route to and from the planet. In the past, the colony has hosted the Klivam Qang Y'Aarg and his mate Jaj'ilo, Fleet Admiral Gabi Greene of the United Federation of Planets, and delegates of the Ferengi Trade Alliance.
Kiith Mrevhoqq'ghi officers are the only ones empowered to conduct and enter into compacts for the Empire, any officers of the Kiith, regardless of rank shall assume command of any interstellar negotiations and shall be supported by the officers of the Galae and Tal Shiar as necessary. In the absence of a Kiith officer the ranking Empire officer may conduct limited negotiations and inform the hru'Llaudh as soon as possible. Kiith officers or ranking Empire officers may initiate a short term agreements of seven days or less with another Empire pending approval of a formal compact by the hru'Llaudh or Imperial High Command.
The Kiith Mrevhoqq'ghi Crest consist of three golden circlets intertwined in the shape of a pyramid, symbolizing the unity of all three Legions into one Empire and the Kiith's function to serve as designated representatives of the Empire in all interstellar relations.
Officers of the Kiith Mverhoqq'ghi have two different uniforms, including a formal one which requires a cloak, and an informal uniform which requires a belt sash of the following colors and emblems. Officers use the color of their primary assignment:
For example, a Kiith member assigned to negotiate a treaty with the Federation who also serves as an engineering officer on the Kiith diplomatic courier would wear a Galae uniform and a sapphire sash.
Rank insignia in the Kiith are composed of silver and gold colored bands on the right wrist of their robes. The silver bands are thin, no more than 1/4 of an inch, while the gold bands are wider, about 1/2 inch.
This table shows how the band rank system works in the Kiith Mrevhoqq'ghi:
|ne'||1 silver||1 thick gold & 1 silver||2 thick gold & 1 silver|
|No Prefix||2 silver||1 thick gold & 2 silver||2 thick gold & 2 silver|
|el'||3 silver||1 thick gold & 3 silver||2 thick gold & 3 silver|
|hru'||4 silver||1 thick gold & 4 silver|
The hru'Llaudh would wear 3 copper bands and no silver bands.
