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

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.

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.

Known Knight-Commanders Edit

Note: If the Right of Annulment was invoked at Kinloch Hold, Cullen is allegedly promoted to the rank of the Knight-Commander according to the epilogue of Dragon Age: Origins. This is revealed to be only rumour in Dragon Age 2.

The third time the Right of Annulment was invoked on a Circle of Magi, in 3:09 Towers, Knight-Commander Gervasio of Antiva killed all of the city's mages for demonic possession. However, a massacre may have already occurred at the hands of Knight-Captain Nicolas, with the Right invoked as cover-up. The Seekers of Truth later apprehended Ser Nicholas, who had left the order to kill mages and admitted to having murdered over a hundred.
