Founded in 333 AF, the Te'Serra Alliance (a.k.a. the Te'Serran Alliance), also just called "the Te'Serra" in Shallamese culture, was a political and spiritual alliance between Lord Pentharian, Lady Mithraea, Lady Lorielan, and Lady Miramar in service to Shallam. Like the Triad of the Night in Hashan, this Divine tetrad acted as patrons for Jewel's affairs for centuries. The Te'serra Pavilion once honoured this union within the courtyards of Shallam's royal palace, so named after the official term for Their common bond with each other and the greater Good.

In 6 Miraman 502 the Te'Serra came to the forefront of Shallamese politics when they established the Caliphate, a theocratic city ruler office, allowing Them direct political power in Shallam; They had veto and approval power over candidates for Vizier, power to appoint and dismiss the Caliph, and power to enact and abolish law and policy.

In 24 Miraman 568 the Te'Serra were instrumental in the dismantling of the Holy Church and removal of the Shallamese Royal Palace, raising up the Citadel of Light in its place as a symbol of unity between Church and state. Heralding its rise, they also established the Te'Serran Primary, a unified holy text for the servants of Good. Helmed by the Te'Serra and Caliph of Shallam, the Citadel of Light did not replace the traditional Council of Viziers. It acted as a religious body which championed and commented on the ideals of Light, Righteousness, and Truth, as was formerly the province of the Holy Church. Nonetheless, membership within its crystal walls was essential for higher office in Shallam. The Caliph also oversaw the skillset of Devotion from the Citadel, as empowered by the Te'Serra.
