The Right of Annulment is the right of the templars to kill all mages in a Circle of Magi used as a last resort to restore order.[1]

Divine Galatea granted the Right of Annulment to all the Grand Clerics of the Chantry in 2:83 Glory after an abomination slaughtered all mages and templars in Nevarran Circle.[2][3] Normally, the Right can only be invoked by a Grand Cleric or a de facto successor (Revered Mother); if there is no access to a Grand Cleric or Revered Mother, then Knight-Commanders of the Templar Order have legal authority to invoke the Right.[4] Depending on the exact circumstances and how long it takes the relevant Grand Cleric to respond, the Right can be invoked but not carried out.

By the beginning of the Fifth Blight, the Right has been invoked 17 times. The Right was requested three more times between 9:30 and 9:40 Dragon, and was carried out in at least two of these instances.

According to Fenris, the Imperial templars also possess the Right of Annulment, but the line that mages must cross for it to be invoked is "elsewhere".
