Entities are spiritual families of approximately a thousand souls. Seven entities make up a cadre. Twelve cadres make up a cadre group (or energy ring). The cadre number is first, followed by the entity number. For example, 4/1 refers to Cadre 4/Entity 1. Cadres 3, 4, and 5 are referred to as 1, 2, and 3 through some channels.
This is a compilation of traits, tasks, and foci of cadres and entities from Cadres 1 through 13, as numbered by Michael through Shepherd. These comprise the still-incarnating entities from Cadre Groups 1 and 2, as well as the first cadre of Cadre Group 3. Each cadre’s position within its cadre group is included as well. The first ten entities of Cadre Group One, and the 4th and 7th positions of Cadre Group Two are cycled off (complete with the physical plane).
The descriptions are meant to give a flavor and are by no means comprehensive.
Following the traits are some well-known members.
