The Imperial Magus is an Imperial Title appointed by Declaration of the Imperial Conclave.

When it was initially created, the title was Conclave Liaison to the Senate and had only the right to address the Senate. At the Autumn Equinox summit 378YE the powers of the title were amended, and re-titled Imperial Magus. During the Spring Equinox 379YE, the responsibilities of the title were further expanded to include a responsibility to keep the Imperial Conclave appraised of the Senate's position on magical matters.

During the Spring Equinox 384YE, the Senate expanded the powers of the Imperial Magus to include the Magus' Precedence, allowing them to raise a single declaration each summit that supersedes the usual running order of the agenda. There were some some concerns among the Constitutional Court about this change, but they chose not to challenge it.


The Imperial Magus is expected to take responsibility for providing the Senate with advice on magical matters. Following further discussion, these responsibilities were expanded to give the Imperial Magus the responsibility to advise the Imperial Conclave of the Senate's position on magical matters.


Right of Address

The Imperial Magus has the right to make an address to the Senate once per summit. This is intended to allow them to present important information for the Senators consideration. To use this power, the Magus informs the Civil Service that they wish to address the Senate. Their address will be added to the agenda for the next Senate session.

Member of the Senate

As a non-voting member of the Senate, the Imperial Magus is entitled to enter the Senate chamber at the start of a Senate session and participate in the debates. They do not have the power to raise motions or to vote on a motion. This power is intended to be used to participate in Conclave related discussions.

Speaker for the Conclave

The Imperial Magus is empowered to raise a single Declaration of Concord each summit to the agenda for debate during a Conclave session. The Civil Service will provide the Imperial Magus with a single writ - to submit their declaration to the Conclave agenda they should complete the writ and hand it to the office of the Prefect of the Conclave at least one hour before the Conclave session begins.

Unlike a grandmaster, the Imperial Magus is personally responsible for any presentation. While a proxy may be appointed to deliver the presentation, their declaration is recorded as having come from the Imperial Magus.

The Magus' Precedence

When the Imperial Magus places their Declaration of Concord, they may use this power to have it supersede the usual running order of the agenda, being deliberated and voted on before any other declarations. If the Throne nominates a primary declaration this is debated first, followed by the Magus' Declaration of Concord.


The appointment, replacement, or removal of the Imperial Magus is made by the Declaration of Candidacy as part of a Conclave session. The Imperial Magus serves until they are replaced by another magician using the Declaration of Candidacy. As a title in the Conclave, they cannot be revoked.
