A rank reserved for those who longer fight alongside us. Though they now wander elsewhere in the world or have moved beyond our plane of existence, perhaps they will find their way back to us.
This is our entry-level rank given to new members. The Inquisitors oversee all Supplicants, and all Supplicants must answer to them. A series of trials are presented to each new inductee and, per the orders of the Inquisitor, must be completed in a timely fashion to their satisfaction. Supplicants must show their willingness to serve The Mandate and bear the colors of The Grim. Failure to do so will result in expulsion from the guild, or worse.
The Minions are those that pledge themselves to any member of The Grim. Their actions fall upon the shoulders of their sponsors who will be brought to account for any consequences against us. Supplicants may sponsor a Minion at the allowance of the Inquisitors.
Our Adherents serve as our standard members, holding our banner high through the fields of battle. However, they are not fully trusted. The core hound guardians of our vaults do not recognize the scent of an Adherent. Only with a core hound pup present can they gain access to our supplies.
The Reapers are our full-blooded members. Fully trusted, they serve The Mandate through their own devices. With magic and steel, they ensure that any who engage them in battle will know they stand before one of The Grim. The rest of us are not far behind.
The few among us who are wholly devoted and serve The Mandate in its entirety. The Harbingers are an example of what it means to be Grim. Few will be granted this rank, but those that do have earned their stay among us. Our history has been written by their hands.
The supervisors of The Grim. While there are many ranks below them, all look up to see the Dreadweavers. They are our generals in battle and our guides at rest. They ensure that the members do not become a mindless rabble of in-fighting gnolls and that we strike our marks when it comes time to kill. Each Dreadweaver focuses on specific tasks that aid in achieving our goals, whether that be leading fists into dungeons, leading teams on battlegrounds, seeking out new recruits, or serving the Inquisition.
The leaders of The Grim, the Irredeemables work to ensure that peace through annihilation comes to fruition. They act as chief organizers of the guild and cover many facets of various leadership roles. They ensure that the guild may function and that smaller details are accounted for. They often oversee the Dreadweavers in their tasks and step in if necessary. Where the Dreadweavers are more specialized, the Irredeemables are variable and adjustable.
The title changes with each leader. Currently, Awatu is The Commander. They stand as the physical will of The Mandate, though each one has been different from the last. They keep a direction for the guild, organize events and assaults, and maintain that all members are performing to their fullest. The leader ensures the stability of The Grim so that the banner does not fall to the ravages of time and fatigue. The keepers of The Grim, they shoulder all of the burdens into the future. Towards a peace through annihilation.
