Primus (ComStar)

This article is about the leader of ComStar. For the planet, see Primus (system).

The Primus of ComStar is the supreme leader of the organization. The Primus makes all major decisions for the Order, which can be overridden by a majority vote of the First Circuit.

Succession and Removal[edit]

Along with the overall hierarchy of the Order, the process of naming a Primus was officially formalized by Raymond Karpov's Doctrinal Edict of 2861, in which the current Primus would choose his or her successor, who would then be confirmed by the First Circuit. After the overthrow of the so called "Mad Primus" Dwight Kurstin, his successor Gregori Hartford passed several reforms during his tenure that permitted the First Circuit to name a successor to the Primus or to remove a Primus from power on a unanimous vote of all Precentors. However since the Primus also votes in all decisions in the First Circuit, removal is very unlikely.


Since the formation of ComStar, there have been a total of 15 Primuses:
