The position of High Justice or Lord High Justice is second only to the Grand Master of the Knights of Solamnia, and serves as the head of the Knights of the Rose. This position is gained through the nomination in the Order of the Rose. According to the Measure, they may only select one member to serve as the High Justice, and only in extreme cases can someone from another order serve in the position, such as Sir Alfred did prior to the War of the Lance. At full strength, this position would have command of six quadrons, which would be 48,000 men. The High Justice also has the knowledge how to stay in contact with the Silver Dragons that were living on Sancrist Isle, which is a small silver bell that needs to be rang that no human can hear ring.
The High Justice will wear judicial robes of black over his knightly armor, and should always be present at a Knight's funeral. The High Justice is based at the Hall of High Justice in the Old City of Palanthas.
