Deputy Grand Master (DGM) — The Deputy Grand Master has responsibilities and authority only second to the Grand Master. Operating under the auspices of the Brotherhood’s leader, the Deputy Grand Master often finds himself assisting through a variety of roles in nearly every aspect of the Dark Brotherhood. He assists the Grand Master in establishing policy and hierarchy, providing for the future of the organization. The Deputy Grand Master is important for the oversight of both the Dark Council and Clans alike, adding perspective to that of the Grand Master. Beyond his executive responsibilities to the Grand Master, however, the Deputy Grand Master has been given several important tasks on his own, such as the development and administration of Vendetta events. The Deputy Grand Master is often next in line for the Iron Throne, but his first line of duty is as a friend and advisor to the Grand Master.

The current Deputy Grand Master is Morgan B. Sorenn.

The Deputy Grand Master is hand-picked by the Grand Master, to serve as their right hand and arbiter to the Dark Council. With this power, the Deputy Grand Master serves as the apprentice to the Grand Master and Dark Lord of the Sith. Save for the Grand Master and Justicar, their word carries the weight of unchallenged authority when overseeing Dark Council activity. Often, the Grand Master will bestow authority and titles upon their Deputy Grand Master to expand their own presence. This can include overseeing the conflicts that arise within the Clans on a more personal level so the Grand Master can focus elsewhere.
