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.

The rulers of Ozerbord, (Baron Huinesoron, followed by Sir Tomash), also claims the title of 'Lord Protector'. This, however, is a separate use of the term: see Protector of Ozerbord.
