Emmisaries are the bards of my campaign- all of them are agents of the Sol Invictus. The nobles and kings of the city-states are aware of this, but the prestige of having an imperial Emmisary in one's court outweigh the risks of having one's schemes and plots known by the Sol Invictus.
Emissaries serve their host king with honor and loyalty- until the time they don't, at which time a new king usually is installed. Such decisions are calculated, but calculated by a rubric beyond the ken of the kings- some Emmisaries served evil and psychopathic kings loyally for decades, only to turn one them and be instrumental in their downfall over some (seemingly) trivial matter
