In Antaran politics, Jaegers are chosen from "highest of noble Houses" whose families supported Valorian before the Empire. They form the administrative staff of the Empire; manage the Imperial Palace; oversee the Shira; and monitor adherence to Imperial law.
The symbol of office for a Jaeger is a gold pin in the shape of the animal that inspired the title. Jaegers live and work throughout the Empire.
- The political role of Jaegers is described in Antaran Political Structure, a treatise written by Pernath Academy staff.
- "JAEGER" is the solution to a lever chest riddle: "Stodgy blueblood, Imperial emblem, ferocious predator."
- The tavern song The Farmer Girl has a verse comparing the charms of a richly bedecked Jaeger's daughter to those of the titular farmer girl.
- A "silly" fairy tale mentioned in The Tale of the Sword, the Flask, and the Pebble is titled "The Jaeger Who Wouldn't Sleep."
