The Mentor’s Council
The Mentor’s Council consists of all Mentors and Caterans of the Cateran Society.
Headmaster: This is not a “master” rank as found in other martial arts. “Headmaster” is the customary term for the head instructor or principal of any Academy, and our Headmaster is in charge of overseeing instruction through our Apprenticeship Program. In addition, whichever branch Academy the Headmaster personally oversees will be the official head school of the Cateran Society Broadsword Academy. The current Headmaster is Cateran Society founder Christopher Scott Thompson. The Headmaster of the Broadsword Academy is also the President (Ceann Suidhe) of the Cateran Society as a whole.
Tanist: The Tanist (Tanaiste) is the Vice President of the Cateran Society. His job is to assist the President, and he is appointed by the serving President. The current Tanist is Cateran Matt Park.
Constable: the Constable is responsible for upholding the standards of the Galloglass by encouraging all members to actively seek martial challenges and to conduct themselves according to the commitments of the Galloglass.
