Concept Art of Odra Avasa
Odra Avasa, Erzad Suprema is the commander of Prima Albasta's elite military corp, the Erzad. Unlike the guard, the Erzad do not act as a police force. They maintain order throughout the city, serve as bodyguards for the most politically important officials, and operate military engagements outside the city. They are primarily stationed within the Sail as the last line of defense should it be breached.
Odra is known to be a taskmaster, and doesn't allow her commands to be second-guessed. As Erzad Suprema she stands as the figurehead for the entire corp. and oversees the city guard. She serves not only military means, but in political means as well.
The counterpoint to the Erzad are the Adjudicators, the demagogues and political elite of Alabast. Run by the Ajudicator Suprema, Adya de Ishtani. Serving as equal voice in the Alabastian government, the two organizations are in direct competition with each other for total control of the country.
