Color me intrigued! I'm digging the concept of the Jakaiar leaders gouging out one of their eyes to offer to the skull of their supreme leader. Since leadership is hierarchical, is the heir's eye removed at birth or does it happen when he is old enough to assume leadership?

When the father dies the son immediately will assume leadership through a ritual where the right eye is offered. The age of the son does not matter much as it is assumed the arch-father will communicate through talking to the child. There are some that doubt that this communication is possible as it would be the only extraordinary or magical thing in the empire. But most think it's real as it has been demonstrated many times under public gatherings when it has been pointed out as well as it is ingrained into the culture almost like a religion.

I am glad you are intrigued! I'm planning to do more of this stuff. It is like a passion project of mine. You are free to come with ideas and such!

Yeesh...shit's gotta hurt though. So what does the "spirit" of the arch-father say to the new leader? Is it something that can be heard by the public or is it strictly between arch-father and son? 

Absolutely! I love me some world building :D

The new leader starts being refered to as the arch-father and seizes to be refered to as its own entity aside from the skull. The communication suposedly happens through physical contact with the head, almost like psychic communication. There may be more ways, but the demonstrations are often the arch-father coming with messages from the skull or unbelievers getting turned by a mere touch of the skull making the subject totally transfixed to the eye in the skeletonhead.

(and I write this way because I feel its more interesting. Kinda holds the narrative that this is an actual world I am explaining about from the little knowledge I have through reading and gossip)
