I made this a different post, since this is comment rather than part of what I'm trying to understand; But I'm not sure this is a problem. The Satrap answers the Emperor and seems to have enough authority to intervene if a city or province does something "wrong" and if they need to suggest a correct action to the city, it makes little difference to the Lunars if the Overseer does it or passes the info on the priest of Buserian? Though I guess imbedding Lunars as secretaries helps them keep informed.
(BTW, there is no reason someone can't be both a Lunar and an acceptable Dara Happan, is there? You just have the right blood & reverence for Yelm and also acknowledge the Red Moon Goddess, presumably as the daughter of Yelm.)
