Every Council member was the head of their respective species and, as such, would bring their species' concerns to the Queen. Rodish was scrupulous on this and never missed a chance to show dwarves in a good light. Rodish had done much to promote mine safety as well and, above or below ground, made sure other dwarves knew they could turn to him and rely on him to represent them properly.
Rodish wasn't keen on paperwork but realized the need to keep on top it of it so had one session a day on this. Most of this was dealing with correspondence from his fellows and it was a point of pride for him that he replied to everything.
When Council work became too much, he would take himself off for a working holiday down a mine and always came back covered in soot but much refreshed. His daily routine at the Palace was to get his paperwork for the day out of the way by 9, have a late but good breakfast in the State Dining Room (where he loved catching up on all the gossip affecting all species) before going to Council meetings and, later in the day, meeting fellow dwarves around the realm. Rodish also made a point of going back to his Amnerbury constituency regularly too. This was a good way of ensuring minor problems never got a chance to develop into major ones.
