The Three Matrons
The Three Matrons of the Three Suns are one arm of the governing force for Zeemot, the others being The Watchers and The Protectors. The matrons are all sisters whose spiritual essence seems to be linked with the city, the factors that govern their souls, and some even say, the sun(s) themselves. The maidens are Xenenna with a Blue Ribbon in her black hair, Corenas a purple ribbon in her brown hair, and the youngest Feleres with an orange ribbon in her red hair. The two “eldest” sisters seem to have the wisdom of a thousand lifetimes and say the weight of it has withered their complexion. Although their ages are not known, it is rumored that the sisters all share the same age and their spirits are linked to the suns. Eberron has only one known sun, which gives another theory that the “eldest” sister’s complexion are a reflection of suns burned out a millennia ago, giving further implication that the sister’s are virtually immortal, or withhold the life essence of a sun.
Their practices and motivations are very weighted, their words and phrases cautious, for this process has kept them hidden and safe for so long the immediacy of man might blunder it in one foolish mistake. The Matrons’ goals and desires as leaders are marred in secrecy and shadow, coupled with the fact that the city has remained a secret for so long, their politics and influence don’t spread farther than their hidden boundaries, adding more questions to their motives.
