The Home Office of Auresia - Ufficio Affari Interni - is the branch of the Imperial Curia of Auresia responsible for domestic intelligence, internal security, immigrations, customs and management of the penal system. It is sometimes referred to informally as State Security.



The organization is managed at its top level by the Minister of Home Affairs, referred to properly as "His Majesty's Minister of State for the Home Ministry". This post is currently held by Lord Eccari, Baron of Granadella, who served in a security and intelligence capacity for nearly fifteen years, having previously been a member of the Imperial Armed Forces in the Strategic Aeronautic Service. He is known for his blunt, methodical style, and is a respected senior official.

A branch of the Office is located in the main municipality of each prefecture, and offices in other major communities are common, though they will not be glaringly obvious as to what they are. Often times, they are guarded by a front facade that is usually the services of another government unit. Through these facilities, the Office maintains security at important locations and in monitoring those in the Empire suspect of illicit activity.

While there is little public awareness of the activities of the intelligence services, the Home Office is much more prevalent in terms of the people's knowledge. They may share no knowledge of its inner workings or activities, but they all know what the Home Office is and what they do. Largely through deliberate dissemination of facts and true stories via trusted second-hand sources, the Office has built a formidable public awareness reputation for efficiency and effectiveness.

Security Clearance

Security Clearance Levels determine the level of access an individual has to sensitive operations and information.
