The Chiss Syndicure was the supreme ruling body of the Chiss Ascendancy, and was composed of the Aristocra's Nine Ruling Families. Members of the Syndicure were known as Syndics.[1]

The Syndicure had both executive and legislative authority over the Ascendancy and served as collective leadership of the Chiss. The Syndicure was meant to have no power over the operations of the Chiss Defense Force and its naval branch, but in practice, this separation of powers was sometimes violated.[1]

The political body called the Aristocra was a part of the Syndicure which included representation from the Forty Great Families.[1]

Before 318 BBY,[2] conflicts between rival Chiss families where common, but ended with the creation of the modern Syndicure.[3]

  2. The events of Thrawn: Alliances set during the Clone Wars take place after Ahsoka Tano had left the Jedi Order. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates both the end of the Clone Wars and Tano's departure from the Order to 19 BBY. As the main events of Thrawn Ascendancy: Chaos Rising take place concurrently with the Clone Wars events of Alliances, Chaos Rising must be set in 19 BBY. Furthermore, during the main events of Thrawn Ascendancy: Lesser Evil it is established that the attack on Csilla, which is depicted as part of the main events of Chaos Rising, took place "last year." Therefore, the main events of Lesser Evil must be set around 18 BBY. As the creation of the modern Syndicure is stated to have occured around 300 years previously, it must have occurred in around 318 BBY
