The Chiss Sages are the Force branch of the Chiss Ascendancy. Led by the Grand Sage, they train all force-using Citizens of the Chiss Ascendancy. Recently, the Chiss Sages have opened their ranks to nonchiss. One can be a member of the Chiss Sages and another force organisation, as long as that organisation is not hostile to the Chiss Ascendancy. The Sages are the only Department constitutionally forbidden from being overseen by a specific House. The leader of Chiss Sages is known as the Grand Sage.
