Sister Superior

A Sister Superior[6]

Sister Superior is a rank within the Sisters of Battle and Sisters of Silence[3]. It is equivalent to the rank of Sergeant used by many military organizations. Sister Superiors may command squads of Seraphim. Often Sister Superiors who have survived many battles will be referred to as Veteran Sister Superiors and have special access to the armoury.[1]

Experienced Sister Superiors will be assigned to command Kill Team Units, that are composed of their Order's Novitiates. Known as Novitiate Superiors, they are charged with steering the faith of their charges and serve as an inspirational example of how a warrior of the Adepta Sororitas acts at all times. In this role, Novitiate Superiors wear full Adepta Sororitas power armour and are the only members of their Kill Teams that have the honor of wielding boltguns.[7]
