I have been reading on the Dark Eldar fairly extensively since the release of The Soul Reaver. I've noticed that Kabals can vary in size and power, but all seem to have only a single Archon. Or, at least that's what I thought. I've found a reference that Asdrubael Vect's own Kabal, the Kabal of the Black Heart, has at least one other Archon that acts as Vect's lieutenant. This seems to conflict with what I've read of the Kabals, so I'm wondering if this is just a bit of old fluff or if it should be rationalized in one of two ways:
1) There is only one Archon in a Kabal. Many of the most powerful Archons retain the services of lesser Kabals by holding influence over their Archons. Surely Vect can exert enough influence that he can get others to do things for him without directly using the Kabal of the Black Heart. The reference to Vect having another Archon of the Kabal of the Black Heart doing his dirty work should instead say that he had an allied Archon and Kabal attending to the task.
2) There is only one Archon in a Kabal. Dracons serve in the role of lieutenants and lead missions that do not require the attention of the Archon. The reference to Vect having another Archon of the Kabal of the Black Heart doing his dirty work should instead say that he had a Dracon attending to the task.
