Upholder is a position of power in the Dragon Empire. It refers to the dragon or dragonelle who is in charge of the daily goings on of their Uphold. 

During the Age of Fire, the Uphold-system was gradually replaced with the Protectorates, with Protectors guarding them.

Officially the Protectorates have their own independence as part of the Grand Alliance, but in realty, such independence was nominal and there was little autonomy from the Dragon Empire.
