Hellknight ranks

From PathfinderWiki

Hellknights embody order in its purest form, beginning with their own hierarchy and strict system of ranks.[1]

Lictor/Vicarius

The lictor (or vicarius if he is risen of the signifers) is the general of a Hellknight order. The Order of the Gate is the only branch of the Hellknights led by a vicarius.[1]

Master/Mistress of Blades

The master of blades or mistress of blades is the field marshal and answers only to the lictor of the Hellknight order.[1]

Paravicar

Paravicar is the leader of an order's signifers, equal in rank to a master or mistress of blades and answers only to the lictor of the Hellknight order.[1]

Paralictor

Paralictors are Hellknight officers ranking below the master of blades or the paravicar.[1]

Maralictor

Maralictors are Hellknight officers ranking below the paralictors.[1]

Hellknight

Hellknights are the rank-and-file seasoned knights of the order.[1]

Signifer

See also: Hellknight signifer

Signifers are the Hellknights who are capable to use the either arcane or divine magic.[1][2]

Armiger

Armigers compose the order's largest population and they are not yet full members of the order. To gain the status of Hellknight, armigers must first pass a trial known as The Test. In the Test a would-be Hellknight must fight against a devil summoned from the depths of Hell.[3][4]
