Simply put, The Nant’an is the Q for the Region.
In the book, Freed To Lead, the story of how F3 was created, the role of Nant’an is borrowed from the Apache Indians, as described in The Starfish and the Spider. The Americans and Spanish were not able to overcome the Apache tribes by killing or corrupting their chiefs. Every time the would-be conquerors thought they had the right man, another man would pop up to lead the Apaches’ stubborn and continued resistance. They were a starfish, comprised of self-sustaining appendages that were loosely connected through a cultural and spiritual leader, the Nant’an. “The strategy failed because no one person was essential to the overall well-being of Apache society.”
F3 regions are organized in the same way, with a Nant’an. He is the cultural and spiritual leader of F3. He is responsible for all outcomes and must serve the pax. The only real power he has is to cut off an appendage if it will not adhere to the F3 core principles.
