The Brotherhood was started by several dwarves of noble houses and has seven high priests who are the only public members of the Brotherhood. All other disciple s are knownwn only to these high priests.

All rituals of the Brotherhood are performed in secrecy and at night. All brothers carry a golden skull which serves as his personal implement and contact with the skull carried by his high priest. The Seven Skulls of Kiravor are the central relics of the Brotherhood. The skulls are made of gold with eyes of precious stones. Each has a different type of stone for its eyes (rubies, diamonds, emeralds, topaz, sapphire, opal and jade). The skulls are reportedly the skulls of seven gods killed during the Godling Wars.

Bio:

Of Creation and the Greater Spirits by Enasilaor, the Keeper of History for the Aleamitore House of First Elves, excerpt…

When Amus called out the Ealintaine and coaxed them out of the void, Kiravor hesitated. His heart desired power and destruction, but he feared the ethereal realm for he had little control over it. But when Teysura ventured out to see what Amus had found, Kiravor followed her and he took delight in what he saw.

Kiravor felt the ether enter him, and he felt its raw power. The ethereal energy radiated with power, and he felt it swell within his being. In a magnificent burst, Kiravor’s desires took form as pure force energy. Amplified by his hatred for all things living, he destroyed all the Teysura had first envisioned.

For a time, the goddess did not reimagine the world, but she bid her time until Kiravor grew weary of the ethereal realm and returned to the void where he sought out his brother, Gaeruhn. Believing that Kiravor would not return, Teysura smiled and shaped the Known World from her visions and awoke the first elves…

…Soon Kiravor and Gaeruhn returned to the ethereal realm and saw what Teysura had made. The brothers laid waste to the world and its first inhabitants. Kiravor drank the life of the elves, and watched as their soulless bodies come to life to do his bidding while Gaeruhn feasted on the still living flesh.

It was Calledrym that finally put an end to the tyranny of the brothers. The mighty god called forth, his friend, Mylesar from the ether and together they taught the first elves to take arms against Kiravor. They fashioned bows and stung Gaeruhn with their power for the first elves drew the ether into each arrow. The elves would have defeated the Flesh Eater had Kiravor not given him an amulet to protect him from the missiles. Gaeruhn continued his feast for another 100 years before Calledrym and Mylesar heard the elven pleas to intercede. The two great gods came forth again from the ether and defeated Kiravor and his younger brother, sending them fleeing into the void.
