The Revalantor of an Antinium Hive fills an important position below the Queen.

Meaning[]

Revalantor was defined one who had found the purpose of his Hive[1], but the position is also one of appointment.

It is currently only possible to speculate what Revalantor actually means. It is likely that the word is related to the common/english words reveal and revelation (ultimately from Latin revelo); or it may be related to revalue; otherwise it may also be simply a title without deeper meaning.

Appearance[]

As only two very different Revalantors are known, nothing can be stated about some general appearance. However, compare Appearance of Prognugators.

Duties[]

Revalantors serve as secondary leaders in a hive below the Queen who usually directs all activities of her workers. There is also the position of the Prognugator, which is a rank below the Revalantor.

However, these two roles are so far not clearly defined against each other; especially because Revalantor Klbkch is currently also the acting Prognugator in Liscor. So, compare Duties of Prognugators.

A main difference is that a Revalantor may disobey the orders directly given to him by the Queen, while a Prognugator may not.[2]

Creating and maintaining a Revalantor is probably as stressful for a Queen as creating a Prognugator is.[3]

Known Revalantors[]

No Revalantors of other Hives have been shown so far. It is likely that filling such a role is not necessary for a hive at all, as the Free Antinium also didn't have a Revalantor for decades.

Trivia[]

  • The title's first use[4] wasn't explained until several chapters later.
  • Prognugator Tersk judged Revalantor Pivr as unfit and possibly a failure for both the Prognugator and Revelantor positions.[3]
  • Revalantor is often misspelled, like currently as Revelantor[5] and Revelator[6]
