The Seat of Lahabrea is given to a specialist in creation, who focuses on phantom entities.One of the Ancient world's most highly respected individuals; a scholar of debate holding the title of Speaker in the Convocation, and a master creator heading the phantomology department of Akadaemia Anyder. He also oversees Pandaemonium as the Chief Keyward, where dangerous creations are tested and researched.He is known to have a son - Erichthonios - with his colleague, Athena.Soul bonded with Athena, Lahabrea learned of her machinations - including dangerous and unethical experimentation. Unable to stand the corruption, he tore out a part of his soul, separating his emotions and heart into what eventually became the individual known as Hephaistos.In modern times, he is one of three Unsundered Ancients remaining, Emet-Selch commenting that his soul degrades from frequently changing host vessels.Lahabrea is frequently associated with fire, by his colleagues, his creations, and through his skills in battle.For Hephaistos references, please see the Ancients tab.

The Seat of Fandaniel is given to the foremost authority in extant phenomena.As Hermes, Fandaniel was the Chief overseer of Elpis, a region where creations were tested and judged for their readiness to be released in the outside world. Hermes took great care with those entities under his charge, empathizing and aiding those even the other researchers gave up on.He specializes in birds and bird-like entities.His research into extant phenomena gave him knowledge of an energy form known as dynamis, which he utilized to create the entelechy, Meteion, in order to visit the distant stars he dreamed of.Meteion was tasked with visiting far off civilizations and asking the inhabitants their meaning of life, as Hermes questioned his own, but found only emptiness and despair.He challenged Emet-Selch, Hythlodaeus, Venat, and the Warrior of Light at the heights of the Ktisis Hyperborea, and allowed Meteion to flee, that Meteion might judge mankind as they judged their creations. He then utilized the memory alteration system Kairos to wipe his, Emet-Selch's, and Hythlodaeus' memories of the events.Fandaniel's knowledge of dynamis allowed the Convocation to determine how Zodiark might be utilized to rewrite the laws of existence and stop the Final Days.Onto Hermes' soul is engraved a desire to explore the stars, his far off hope.In the Sundered world, the Seat of Fandaniel is held by Amon, an Allagan technologist.Disagreeing with the Unsundered's plan for Rejoining and restoring the original world, because he finds no value in life, Fandaniel instead allies himself with Zenos yae Galvus, creating a group known as the Telophoroi - the orchestrators of the end - in order to end the world utilizing the Final Days.After Elidibus' defeat, Fandaniel takes his place the Heart of Zodiark, where he allows himself to be defeated.

Miscellaneous Mask References
5/6. Gaius' masks. Altima and Deudalaphon, which is which is unclear.7-10. Variations of the masks seen on Emet-Selch during the Hades battle. These were commissioned from tuhis_ffxiv.
11. Theoretical Loghrif mask, taken from splitting the Mitron/Loghrif Prime. Commissioned from tuhis_ffxiv.
No longer speculation! Gaius' belt has two red masks belonging to members of the Sundered Convocation.During a Q&A it was revealed that these two masks belong to Altima and Deudalaphon.It was also noted that Ascians are hard to kill. Just because Gaius has the masks does not mean they were permanently vanquished.
Though Azem is yet to show a glyph over their features like the Ascians of the Convocation of Fourteen, nor do they have an Esper Glyph to draw from, there are hints one might exist.It is notable that in Akadaemia Anyder, the glyphs are shown to be on display. It is likely that Azem had one in their place of work, or perhaps in the capitol proper.Furthermore, in Nabriales' fight, certain spells have a glyph at their base. You can see this in image 2. This is a similar effect to what we see displayed on Azem's magic during the events of 5.3 (1).
Mitron's Missing Pauldrons in Eden
Members of the Convocation who have been Ascended to their seat and taken their title have wing adornments and pauldrons. Golden and quite large, it's notable that Mitron does not.It is quite possible that the reason he lacks this adornment is because another fragment has already been raised to the Seat after his demise. This would make the fragment encountered in Eden the previous title holder and no longer current.
