Though The Ancient One is the ostensible leader of the Temple, the Temple is more loosely unified than such a singular leader may suggest. The Temple's Sorcerers Supreme hail from many different dimensions and all come to Kamar-Taj to learn – the Ancient One is simply the most learned. This degree of autonomy is a great strength of the Temple, for most who visit Kamar-Taj understand the greater threats that face the denizens of Battleworld, however there have been instances of dissent among the Temple. Some Sorcerers have accused the Ancient One of hoarding the most powerful magic for themselves, leaving others incapable of true ultimate knowledge.
The Isles of Agamotto were once simply The Island of Agamotto. Little is known of the time before The Great Cleft that cracked the single island into multiple fractured realities, but in its wake, the mystics of The Temple of Vishanti began their scholarly federation. Their primary focus was and remains the Mystic Caldera within which lies a dangerous and powerful portal to other dimensions, some even too dangerous for The Ancient One to study for too long.
Though the Caldera is a source of knowledge for The Temple of Vishanti, it is also a source of danger. During the Maestro's Conquest the Temple remained neutral, much to the ire of other Houses and even members of the Temple, many of whom resisted his rule. Though outwardly this seemed to many as an act of pacifistic cowardice, only the Sorcerers Supreme know the real reason: The Ancient One could not fight a war on two fronts. Maestro's destabilization of the realities of Battleworld dislodged many of the mystic safeguards in place throughout the Isles of Agamotto, causing The Dark Dimension's horological stabilizations to falter.
