The most infamous name in the Graal Military world, the name is given only to the leaders of the military world. Those who carry the name automatically have command over the Sentinels , the guards of Auel. They are also given the knowledge and powers of previous Auels. Coupled with their existing influence and followers necessary to be given the name, a man who bears the name Auel is extremely powerful.
The ruthless tactics used to establish the line's power and reputation have warped the name Auel with "tyrant". On several occasions, Auels have used their troops and power to brutally crush small guilds with the potential of someday becoming competition. Graal warfare was invented by the Line of Auel to demoralize guild leaders and either force them to quit or give up leading their guilds. Auels employ warfare and their vast number of troops to make leaders give up hope. After they have quit, they absorb the victim's troops into their own armies. If the opposing guild leader remains, they are humiliated and forced to join Auel's army at the lowest rank. If warfare fails to demoralize a leader sufficiently, the leader's officers and friends are banned, but the leader is spared to watch all his members disappear.
The ideology of "the end outweighs the means", has led to members of the line to break off such as Auel Kusan. A series of wars that are known as "State Rebellions" were fought between Auel Vist and Auel Kusan leading the major factions of the opposing sides. The war ended with Auel Vist disappearing after the Rebellion was quelled. Auel Kusan left for Delteria shortly after.
Regardless of ideology, each individual who bears the name is undoubtedly charismatic and is able to easily gain the loyalty of others for their own purposes.
After Auel Vist's decline, many individuals have claimed to be part of the line of Auel without being appointed, and lacked the previous qualifications of being State Generals.
