A High Marshal is the Chapter Master of the Black Templars Chapter. He is the commander in chief and responsible for the progress of each Crusade and must uphold the honour of the Emperor and his Chapter. The High Marshal is steeped in the lore of the Black Templars and the living manifestation of the Chapter and knowledgeable of all its secrets. Ultimately he is the only one who knows the exact number of Black Templars.
