Knight-Commander is a title granted to the second highest-ranking officer of the Templar Order. Every Andrastian Circle in Thedas has a Knight-Commander to lead the templars residing within.

Background[edit | edit source]

Knight-Commanders living in Circles work closely with First Enchanters, they oversee apprentice mages taking their Harrowing and can suggest the Right of Annulment to the Chantry when they feel it is necessary. Knight-Commanders are also posted outside of the Circles, ostensibly to oversee the templars hunting apostates and manning the Chantries in a given area. For instance, in 9:30–31 Ferelden has three Knight-Commanders: Tavish in Denerim, Harrith in Redcliffe, and Greagoir at Kinloch Hold.

If they decide that a threat takes priority over watching the mages, Knight-Commanders have the power to send templars serving under them away from their Circle tower to defend a nation or city against invaders. The duties and level of power of those residing in the open world are unknown. However, Knight-Commander Tavish states it is in their power to conduct their own Exalted Marches if they deem it appropriate.

A Knight-Captain, though lower-ranking, has the authority to relieve a Knight-Commander of duty if they overstep their bounds. The same right is held by Divine and Grand Clerics who may act on the suggestions of the order of the Seekers of Truth.
