The Original Covenant was the original governing document that dictated the order of the Weir, and was written by Nicodemus Snowbeard. Because of its tenants, it was very unpopular among the Anawizard Weir, which are the non-Wizard Weir. Due to recent events, the Original Covenant was scrapped and negotiations for a new one have begun, albeit with heavy resistance from the Wizard Council and the Wizard community.
Forming the CovenantEdit
The Covenant was formed after the 6 Cousins slayed Lady Aidan Ladhra out of fear that she might not be truly dead. The Covenant acts as a seal to keep the immense power of Lady Aidan from re-emerging. Violation of the Covenant could result in the Dragon reawakening.
Tenants of the Original CovenantEdit
- Wizards are the dominant Weir and rule over the remaining Weir
- Because of their immense power, Wizards are forbidden to fight each other
- The Wizard Council must agree on all amendments
- Tournaments will be held between Warriors to avoid Wizards fighting one another
- Regardless of the Weir you were born into, if you have received a Warrior's Weirstone, you are able to participate in Tournaments
- If you were born into a different Weir, but have a Warrior's Weirstone, you are prohibited from using non-Warrior magic
Consequences of Violating and Abusing the CovenantEdit
The effects of violating the Covenant can be very severe. In one instance, armies of undead Warriors rose up to combat the belligerents when Leander Hastings used his Wizardry to combat Claude D'Orsay. Also, abusing amendments to the Covenant can also be disastrous, as the Dragonheart reacted violently when D'Orsay abused amending the Covenant to suit his needs.
Termination of the Original CovenantEdit
Ever since the events at Raven's Ghyll, the Original Covenant has been scrapped and negotions for a new one went underway. This however, sparked a war that became known as the Underguild Rebellion. Two new Covenants, the D'Orsay-Leicester Covenant and Hastings-Ravenstock Covenant, have been proposed, though the issue is still a very tense one.
