The Fabricator-General, also known as the Magos Mechanicus, is the highest ranking position of the Adeptus Mechanicus. A Fabricator-General oversees his respective Forge World along with his deputy, the Fabricator-Locum.[5]

While many Forge Worlds have its own Fabricator-General, it is the Fabricator-General of the Mechanicum homeworld of Mars that is the most powerful and prestigious. In addition to overseeing the general Mechanicum, the Fabricator-General of Mars is the head of the Cult Mechanicus and speaker of the Martian Parliament[3]. The Fabricator-General of Mars is most often chosen from the Forge Master of the Olympus Mons Forge.[4]

As the leading figure of one of the Imperium's most powerful and influential organizations, he is invariably a member of the High Lords of Terra.[1]


During the early days of the Great Crusade, the Mechanicum was led by the Martian Parliament. The Fabricator-General acted as the Martian ambassador to Terra and had a seat on the War Council of the Great Crusade.[3] At some point before Kelbor-Hal held the position, the post had evolved into the leader of the Mechanicum.
