General Guides

The Justicar (JST) is charged with minimizing internal strife and works to maintain stability within the Brotherhood. The Justicar serves primarily as the chief judicial officer of the Brotherhood. They are the interpreter of the Covenant and uphold the laws and regulations of the Brotherhood. They have 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 they will often be placed in a neutral role within cases. They work 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 five members:

  • The Left Hand of Justice assists in investigations and acts as a public defender in trials.
  • The Right Hand of Justice assists in investigations and acts as a prosecutor in trials.
  • Three members serve on the Appeals Panel and review judgments and Orders of Advanced Incarceration as defined by the Covenant.

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 Council. The Justicar is one of the few 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 Councilors lack.

Roll of Justicars

The current Justicar is Kamjin "Maverick" Lap'lamiz.
