This article contains plot details from the latest book.
“'This is the Seat of Eminence,' Grady explained as they made their way up the palace's wide diamond steps. 'Think of it as the hub for the nobility.'”
The Seat of Eminence is "a sprawling diamond palace with four domed towers." It is one of the largest buildings in Eternalia, even larger than the Tribunal Hall. The entrance is a rectangular door that appears to have silver and gold woven into it. Only Mentors, Emissaries, Councillors and Regents can enter the Seat of Eminence, unless given access by the Council for an appointment. Licking a DNA sensor is the way access to the inside is granted.
The inside of the building is dark because the diamonds are faceted in such a way that all the light is reflected away from the structure. When an elf crosses the threshold, a spotlight will glow around them. The color of the spotlight depends on their ability, meaning different abilities glow different colors. However, when a goblin crosses the threshold, a gray spotlight will appear. All weapons must be stowed when inside the Seat of Eminence.
One needs to walk a long way to get to the main chambers of the building, and the reason why is stated by Grady: "The design is meant to ensure that by the time we reach the main chambers, we’ve cleared our minds of everything except the reason we’re here."

Sophie, Dex, Biana, Stina, and Wylie were invited here to discuss the possibility of becoming Regents for the Council. They came with their guardians in order to enter the building, since they were not officially a part of the Nobility when they came in. They accepted, and formed Team Valiant.
- Some of the characters' auras match their backgrounds of the Laura Hollingsworth art. (i.e: Sophie's aura is red, and the background of her art is red as well)
