General Guides

The Headmaster (HM) is the person in charge of running the Shadow Academy, as well as the Dark Brotherhood's master of ritual and lore.

There are very few roles in which the success of the Councilor can have an astounding impact on the Brotherhood. Headmaster is one such role. Responsible for all new member affairs, the Headmaster’s activity is essential in keeping the lifeblood of the Brotherhood flowing as he ensures that new members are properly welcomed into the organization. The Headmaster works with the Master at Arms to ensure the proper elevation of members within Clans so as to retain the maximum number of active members possible. Beyond this, the Headmaster is in charge of the continuing education of regular members. He develops and keeps the Shadow Academy as a center for learning covering both fictional and practical subjects. Until it was dissolved, the Headmaster trained and kept the largest force of any Dark Councilor: the Society of Envoys.

The current Headmaster is Ciara Tearnan Rothwell Tarentae
