Ivory Trade of the Order of the Five Pillars
The Ivory Trade of the Order of the Five Pillars is not a corporation per se, but a branch of the Order of the Five Pillars or O5P. When Sanyu Kurita was Keeper of the House Honor, she took over the ivory trade to finance her work as Keeper during the twenty-fifth century, with the Order of the Five Pillars originally formed as a security force for this trade. Though the O5P has greatly expanded beyond this role, the ivory trade remains in place partially for tradition and as a vital source of income and influence for the Keeper's office.
