Leaders are unique historical figures that can be recruited and provide their abilities to affect the running of your foreign policy with bonuses and maluses. Once recruited, a leader will create and keep a base of power in a specific region, costing them 1 Power/ Timeline. Similarly, using a leader's abilities will usually spend their power.

Each occupying a regional power-base, leaders do not move and their description text contains hints on what they might provide in terms of benefit or damage to your cause. If at any time a Leader’s power is reduced to zero, it is immediately lost.
