Captain of the Guard (Guild Leader)

The highest warrior rank in the guild is that of Captain of the Guard. The Captain of the Guard exemplifies the ideals of the Order, is the most skilled of warriors in combat, and serves as a leadership model for all. The Captain of the Guard directly commands those with rank of Guardian in the guild, but stands above all warriors.

Qualifications

A candidate for Captain of the Guard must have held the rank of Knight Erraunt for at least four consecutive weeks prior to challenging for the position, and must first seek the approval from the Guildmaster or Avatar.

Time in Rank

There is no higher warrior rank than Captain of the Guard. If the Captain of the Guard is demoted in rank, he may not challenge to regain the title for a period of four weeks.

Responsibilities

The Captain of the Guard is expected to organize events, to mentor, to lead, and to serve his guildmates in any way possible as the supreme warrior within the Order.

Special Authority

As the leader of the Guardians, the Captain of the Guard is one of two individuals who must give permission to challenge for the rank of Guardian (the other being the Guildmaster, Avatar, or an Archon). The Captain of the Guard may demote any Guardian to the rank of Knight immediately if he finds that the Guardian is not performing his duties. Although less common, the Captain of the Guard may also demote any Knight to the rank of Defender (this would more commonly be handled by the Knight Errant).

How to Obtain Rank

Once the Knight Errant has satisfied the time requirements and obtains permission to challenge, he must defeat the current Captain of the Guard in a ranking battle of five rounds. The candidate must win at least four of the five duels to gain the title. If he does, he becomes the new Captain of the Guard and the old holder of that rank becomes the new Knight Errant.

Title

The guild title of the Captain of the Guard is always "Captain of the Guard". 

Loss of Rank

Unless demoted, the only way to lose rank is to be defeated during a ranking match.
