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 their 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.

At the end of the 41st Millennium the Fabricator-General was Oud Oudia Raskian, but his position is being threatened by Archmagos Belisarius Cawl, the famed creator of the Primaris Space Marines. The Cawl Inferior has been pushing the recently resurrected Lord Commander Roboute Guilliman to make him Fabricator-General, but the Primarch refuses to do so, as the Archmagos is considered a Heretek by much of the Mechanicum and his appointment would led to civil war.[6] Cawl himself insists that he has no interest in a political position,[7] and is unsure why the Cawl Inferior is so persistent in its request.[8]
