If Infinitiaty were a corporation instead of a religion, the most appropriate job title for Sages would be “Flunkies.” Sages report to the Chief Sage Officer (CSO) and do his or her bidding.
Typical Sage chores include the following:
Sage: Job Qualifications and Compensation
Beyond the above functions, the only public role for Sages is to appear wise. Thus, the primary qualification for becoming a Sage is strong acting skills.
Sages are typically relatives of the people higher up in the Infinitian organization or people to whom those higher-ups owe favors. There are a number of pointless determinants of how many Sages there are at any point in time, but principle among those determinants is the number of leeches for whom the CSO must find jobs.
Sages are not paid a salary, but they receive free room and board, as well as clothing and toiletries allowances. In addition, Sages typically receive a small share of the CSO’s coffee, tea, alcoholic beverages and hallucinogens. Sages can also occasionally cop a feel off the CSO’s choirboys, choirgirls and prostitutes.
