  • I just found out that Alan Rikkin is not the Grand Master of the Templar Order. All this time I thought he was. I'm actually quite happy as I have hope the Grand Master will bad ass and I think Alan Rikkin is quite bland. An okay character but not what you want in a "GRAND MASTER". I cant wait to find out who the real Grand Master is!

    • As per the Assassin Intelligence files in Unity, there are multiple Grand Masters, apparently. One for each country/area/region it seems.

    • Even in Modern Day?! Then the Templars are shame! :( They should have went global by now I mean look at the Assassins, they were worldwide in 2000 and the Templars are the ones that are meant to be about order and dominian. I expected better from the Templars in this era especially due to globalization it would be so easy to have one Grand Master!

    • If this is true I do hope the role of the title "Grand Master" has changed and that their is still one leader of the whole order. I mean I wouldn't mind if the Grand Master from USA or China were leaders of the entire order.

    • You forget, the Templars have the Inner Sanctum. I'm sure there's cooperation between all the different Grand Masters. Also, having Grand Masters in each area makes sense, cause they need to be in positions of power. The Assassins are just rogue cells by comparison.

    • How are they not global? Abstergo Industries is a global conglomerate. The Assassins have various Mentors in modern times too, as evidenced by Initiates.

      It doesn't really matter about the Assassins because their not all about order and control. I wouldn't expect "cooperation" between Grand Masters. I would expect one Grand Master to have authority and power over the whole order but still devolve operations to other high ranking members.

      I don't understand what you said up there? You don't need to be a Grand Master to have a position of power.

      @Sima, When I said global I meant one central leader of the whole Templar Order as Grand Master. The same way the Assassins had one in 2000, and I would think that the Templars would be organized like that first before the Assassins ever did due to the Templars' ideology. Though I'm fine with Assassins not having a central power.

    • It's pretty likely that the Templars have one individual or a small group keeping control over the entire Order.

      "If we do proceed with your plan, I will contact our Grand Masters in Cuba, Mexico, and the United States to get a read on the situation." This is the direct reference.

    • If that's the case then I'm fine with it, but it seems that the role and meaning of a "Grand Master" has slightly altered or maybe I just misunderstood. Isn't a Grand Master mean't to be the leader of the entire Templar Order and so I would assume that due to globalization I would assume that there is one Worldwide Rite of the Templar Order but it seems there are still different rites of the Templar Order but are controlled by a certain group of people or person. I should rephrase the the questio "Who is the Modern Day Templar Order?". I am very interested to find out the exact structure of the contemporary Templar Order.

    • Probably it won't be anytime soon for the big man to show up. The Assassins peel back layers after layers and they are not even halfway in, and somehow I'm totally okay with that.

    • Just saw this debate and hey, it's here on the wiki.... The way I understand it, it's that among many Grand Masters of the past, there was always a grand master/region with the highest authority (for example, Crawford Starrick/London). The Modern Order seems to be more centralized, for the sake of globalization and progress (and BECAUSE OF globalization and progress, when communication is easier), hence Grand Masters serve their traditional role of importance but they are no longer so high in the hierarchy. Inner Sanctum seems to be the center of big operations/decision making, with 3 Templar Guardians (Alan Rikkin is just one of them) governing over their actions and General of the Cross governing over the whole.

      Just to make this clear:

      "By the 20th century, the Templars were no longer ruled by a single Grand Master or independant leaders but instead by a council of the Order's brightest members, the Inner Sanctum of the Templar Order. The Sanctum was in charge of creating a globalized plan for the Order and to ensure the cooperation of all the Rites and their leaders, while also preventing any corruption of the Templar ideals.

      While still in charge of their respective and autonomous Rites, the Grand Masters were nevertheless accountable to the members of the Inner Sanctum and their inquisitor, the feared Black Cross. Furthermore, the Inner Sanctum was in charge of promoting the Grand Masters, keeping their numbers under strict control."

      So far, General of The Cross seems to be the ultimate boss, and with things going as they are, I fear he may actually be a sage or something. LOL. (Or at least in Juno's pocket).

      Probs not a sage. If he was then abstergo wouldn't need sage DNA.

    • Yes this was a year ago and have been informed this information but thanks anyway. I was just annoyed that they didn't make the title of Grand Master the highest rank due to my slight OCPD. Especially due to the fact that Grand Master is an actual historic rank and while 'General of the Cross' is purely fictional. Grand Master of the Knights Templar was always supreme commander of the Knights Templar, until this idiocy of a title.

    • Would be a dream. Templars didn't have a cool Grand Master since Haytham Kenway. 


      Not sure if Shay became Grand Master after Charles Lee died.

    • THere is ony one order and one grandmaster.  He is called The Regent today because he was not elected but was handed the office by the previou one who happened to be his father.  It was done quickly on the death bed of the father during dangerous times during the war when it was not safe to be seen to belong to anything hidden.  He is called Fernando de Sousa Fontes and he is the only one who has the official documentation and seal ciphers which can only be passed through to the heir appointed or elected and two of the so called Holders of the Office (Lugar Tenientes) to ensure that the knowledge is not lost.  The subject is vast but if anyone wants to know more or dialogue with me in this respect, I will do my best to ensure that many aspects of the modern Order are understood better than they are today.  All others who pretend to be heading an Order of Templars, are patently fault and in the main, charlatans and fraudsters seeking to sell trinkets and titles.  Very sad.

      1. Don't spread misinformation.

      2. Treating the Templar Order like a real-life entity makes you come across as silly. If you want to write a story about this Regent, you are free to do so on the fanon wiki, however.

      I worked with the Regent, Fernando de Sousa Fontes, for over twenty years and travelled extensively all over the world meeting key members of the Order and attending investitures.  I was primarily responsible for work on the English speaking countries and even created a Secretariet for the purpose. At most of these functions, high civic dignitries of the region attended and during a world council at La Toja in La Coruña, Galicia, we were allowed to organise our investiture at the Cathedral  of Santiago de Compostela with full Mass, Organ music and assistance from the local Church dignitaries.  I read the majority of the file information through the previous couple of centuries and I had no doubt whatsoevr that this Order was not only genuine, but protected by the Cistercian Order which had a complete listing and description of all Grandmasters and Regents from the time of Jacque de Molay. The Regent has a collar and signature which ties in with the hidden knowledge and which only he and his closest understand.  It demonstrates the continuity of the line of Grand Masters. The rest available in the world today is so plastic and false that it is must be driven by people who want to be called Templars at any cost.  Some of these Orders only last a few years and others make so much money out of the sale of amulets and  internal medalry that they can carry on with their circus acts for long enough to establish some sort of public recognition among friends.

      Whilst saying this, I have to admit that my level of discipline including a very meticulous study of all aspirants the membership, fell foul of many an infiltrator put in by bad Priors and who undermined just about anyone including the Regent to break the structure down. Most were ex Masons and military figures intent on bringing their extra mural ambitions and authority into the Templar line of command. Many succeeded in destroying years of work and isolating the Regent whose main difficulty was his inability to establish a reliable Grand Council with strong control over all the Priories of the world.  Many of these Priories also sought to outshine others and constantly crowded the Regent´s table with one demand after another and always seeking to arrive at the final award called Grand Cross. One such Prior even questioned the use of the Red Sash earned unmistakably by sheer effort on the part of those who wore it claiming that it outshined him. Such alas, was the level of the modern entrants who could not understand the concept of Military Chivalry and whose sole reason for entering was to display privilege, Many of these were very ineffectual leaders and came form a very barren platform that should have excluded them from such unearned  pretensions.  The Order is shaken by genuine fighters for meaning throughout the generations and Regents can do little if surrounded by low quality advisors.  I would love to know which so called Order or make believe Grand Master presumes to be the head of the genuine outfit, having seen the likes of one called Garland who led thousands astray and did it as he said to me "for money of course"  He was a member of our Order proposed by me and a retired cultural advisor to the Spanish Government and broke away to form his own Order within weeks of being appointed by the Regent as Prior of Spain. His own peculiar outfit which included most of the South American Priories, collapsed within a few years leaving its members unaware that they were a schismatic group and who later sought to return to the fold.  Today many international Priories are over a thousand members in number and the future appears to be very promising.
