Justicar (JST)—The Justicar is charged with minimizing internal strife and works to maintain stability within the Dark Brotherhood. The Justicar serves primarily as the chief judicial officer of the Brotherhood. He is the interpreter of the Covenant and upholds the laws and regulations of the Dark Brotherhood. He has authority to administer justice as it pertains to those laws and conduct investigations as needed to keep the peace. It is important that the Justicar is a long-standing member who carries little bias, as he will often be placed in a neutral role within cases. He works constantly with the Grand Master to mitigate problems and damages as issues arise. The Justicar is charged with ensuring the proper function of the entire Chamber of Justice.


General Duties:

The Justicar is assisted by two members:

See: Organizational Chart

Fictional Role

The Justicar is hand-picked by the Grand Master to serve as the sole arbiter and administrator of the Brotherhood's laws and order. The Justicar oversees the Hands of Justice: one acting as the prosecution while the other serves as the defender. The Justicar has final say over any judicial decision and are responsible for carrying out and delivering verdicts and sentences with all the weight and power of the Dark Council. The Justicar is one of the few Dark Councilor roles that can directly challenge the actions of a Grand Master, limited only by the Star Chamber itself, giving them a unique kind of power that other Dark Councilors lack.

Roll of Justicars

The current Justicar is Dacien Victae.

Heraldry of the Justicar

Upon appointment to the bench, each Justicar works with artists to design his own crest. This symbol is then used throughout the Chamber of Justice and on every official Chamber document during the Justicar's term. Below are the crests of current and past Justicar's.
