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.
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. 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.
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. At some point before Kelbor-Hal held the position, the post had evolved into the leader of the Mechanicum.
