MIM (Most Important Members)
Luminarius: Leader of the Illuminati. Once a lord in Equestria while Luna was imprisoned, now one of three hidden rulers of Equestria that operate under parameters set by Celestia. A large white alicorn with golden hair. Seen by most as the male version of Celestia, but to those who know him can recognize the key differences.
Cysterias: The second Leader of the Illuminati and the public figurehead of the Luminus Foundation. Formerly the head of a large pegasi charity that helped the youth of the Great Cloud Cities (including Cloudsdale) get off the streets and learn useful skills. A medium sized alicorn with a dark blue body and lighter hair. Seen as the male counterpart to Luna, but much like Luminarius, those who know him can tell the differences.
Silvaria: Third and last Leader of the Illuminat and spearhead of the Military and Intelligence Division of both the Illuminati and Equestria. The main difference between her and the other leaders is that she is a dragon. She is of middle age and size for a dragon, being about twice the height of a normal stallion (such as Big Macintosh) and three times the length. She lives in one of the high towers in Canterlot and is known by most ponies throughout Equestria and beyond. Originally from Stalliongrad.
