The post of Protector is the highest in the isle of Konti-Nyuum. It refers to both a military and political leader. No one person has ever held the title; rather, in the three eras of Plort's history, it has been a joint title.
- Originally the post was held by Jay and Acacia, who are the only ones referred to as 'the Protector(s)'.
- Later, the three Triumvirs were referred to as holding a joint Protectorship.
- Finally, in both the Union of Plort and the Protectorate of Borrd, the Protectorship is held jointly by the Council of Plort and the Council of Borrd, respectively.
