"We, the Whites are known as the Wise... and although I wouldn't call myself so, as I have still much to learn, it is true that it describes well what we are looking for: Enlightment is our way to discover the hidden truths of the Universe and the reason why we exists, the meaning of existence and life. Such endeavour is not a one generation task. So our function is to gather and preserve every bit of knowledge for future generations to keep our work. To preserve this for eternity; Were we came from, all we have become and were we will be heading to" - Kaira Molkien
The White Branch is one of the 12 Branches of the Sisterhood of Kryso, an Order native to the Union, one of the Lewis Nations. It's Sisterhood headquarters as a whole are located in Kryso, but those of the White Branch are located in the Planet Senekar. In this world, they are in charge of training new members of this women-only Order. This branch is often called "the Wise" or "the Phylosophers".
This Branch focus itself in Knowledge and Phylosophy and gathering (and saving) said attributes for eternity. Its main goal is to save what humanity has accomplished for the Universe to see in case the race goes extinct or is swallowed by a foreign power. Nevertheless it is also their duty to save that information for future generations of Humans.
They are known for being great teachers and for making education accessible to all, no matter of the social status they have. The sisters of this community are seen on the streets of many worlds teaching the poor or the people passing by about the vast knowledge of the Universe. Sometimes they gather small thinking groups who focus on Phylosophy and other similar fields. For such tasks, they are often required to follow the Path of Awakening. Typically, the Path of Awakening that they do is the Path of Wisdom or the Path of the Seer, as it fits perfectly with the policy of the Whites.
To indicate to others of their condition as members of the White Branch, they are somehow forced to wear white. In case they cant wear this colors, they often decor their wrists with long white strips to indicate to all who they are and which branch they belong to.
Functions and Power
The Whites rarely get to have power outside of the Sisterhood. They are often employed as teachers of the Elites and sometimes required for teachers or administrator of education in newly settled worlds. They also serve as advisors of many powerful and important personalities. They can be either alongside a Mayor of a town or next to the Union's leader. It all depends on what they are required for. Nevertheless they often live from charity and do live in ascetic sort of livestyle. They are very much loved by the common people.
They are often seen doing librarian jobs, usually concentrated in Universities and centers of learning. They write and work as librarians or administrators of manuscripts and other texts in either written form or computer data. They always keep teaching themselves and following enlightment for themselves and those around them. Constant learning is their most followed dynamic. They are regarded as erudites and explorers of truths.
Sometimes, however, they are seen as ruthless who do not care about individuals but only about the species or the knowledge itself. In their agendas, the preservation and passing of knowledge is above anything and anyone. If someone is needed to be killed in order to preserve something, they wont dare doing so. They consider individuality as a minor thing in the whole picture of things in this cosmos. The species and its knowledge must be preserve at all costs while individuals are regarded as coming by, as simply being here for a short period and that living person shouldnt be put above all the generations to come.
As all the members of the Sisterhood they have Psychic powers. Nevertheless, they dont used them very much other than for minor things that pursue the goal of education and preservation of knowledge. It is posible that the use of this abilities is often more used that they are willing to admit. The Parasyte in them has allow them to open their brains for knowledge and they dont want to mix their powers with those given by the parasyte.
