: Would the Nine therefore be the nine most powerful
: lords/kings in the West or just normal avatara?
: Yes, I know JUST avatara is rather ironic given how
: powerful they are.
I'd say most powerful - that's how they get to be the leaders, or at least a byproduct of the fact that they ARE leaders. Cases in point, all the Nine we hear about seem really, really powerful, even for what you'd expect to be a powerful unit anyway.
