The Great Noxion of Alvos is the individual sovereign of the Alvic Intersolar Imperium. The Noxion possesses supreme authority over the imperial bureaucracy, appoints the leaders of each court council, and is also the supreme commander of the Alvic Starfleet and the other armed forces of the Imperium. The Noxion also shares lawmaking power with the College of Guardians, possessing the ability to issue special decrees in certain circumstances and with regards to certain matters. Meanwhile, the Noxion exercises his executive power through instruments known as Instructions, which interpret pre-existing law.

The Noxion cannot be removed from his position, except by a unanimous vote of the College of Guardians. Should the Noxion be removed from power this way, a new ruler must be elected by the College, usually another technocrat from the College. As another aspect of centralization, the Noxion is also empowered to appoint his own successor, called the Nosileus (“Prince of the Stars”), and he is free to ignore the traditional primogenitary line of succession.

The current Noxion is Erenze IX, who ascended to the throne following the abdication of his older sister, Noxina Delphira I, in 915 NM. His appointed successor is his eldest son, Nosileus Alphios. He and his family descend from the Nykalian line of the Kaerid family.
