The Caelestis Inquisitores is divided in two branches, the Inquisition and the Army of the Lightsworn.

The Master of the Inquisitores answers to the Grand Priory of the Caelestis Templares and works most closely with the Grandmaster to manage the logistics and running of the Order.

The Exarch of the Inquisitiores answers to the Grand Priory of the Caelestis Templares and the Master and works most closely with the High Deputy Lord Inquisitor to conduct and manage the Inquisition. The Exarch is second in command under the Master of the Inquisitores and tends mostly to masters of capturing, torturing, questioning, and executing people for the Inquisition as well as managing the Inquisitors, Agents, Assassins, Zealots, and Novitiates of the Order.

The General of the Inquisitores answers to the Grand Priory of the Caelestis Templares and the Master and works most closely with the Lord Commander to lead the Army of the Lightsworn. The Army of the Lightsworn are those who have not been able to walk the path of the paladin and join the Caelestis Templares, but want to fight alongside their Faithful brethren in the Templares to do the Light's work in battle. The General tends to lead the Lightsworn in battle and manage the Zealots, and Novitiates as well.

Inquisitors answer to all those of higher rank in the hierarchy, but work most closely with the Exarch and Lord Inquisitor to manage the Inquisition and matters the Inquisition sees fit to occupy itself with. They are officers of the Inquisitores and may give orders to Agents, Lightsworn, Assassins, Zealots, and Novitiates, but mostly they leave Lightsworn to be given orders by the Lieutenants.

Lieutenants are of the same level in the heirarchy as Inquisitors and answer to all those of higher rank in the hierarchy, but they occupy themselves mostly with battle and war. They are proven and mighty leaders in combat and serve to inspire and lead the Army of the Lightsworn against the heretic. Lieutenants are officers of the Inquisitores and may give orders to Agents, Lightsworn, Assassins, Zealots, and Novitiates, but mostly they leave Agents and Assassins to be given orders by the Inquisitors.

Agents answer to all above them in the Hierarchy. They are proven agents of the Inquisition and occupy themselves with investigating matters. Agents take it upon themselves to get to the bottom of matters and are given the chance to do what they feel is best to get information and answers for the Inquisition. They are given liberty to investigate what they think is work investigating.

Lightsworn are of the same level in hierarchy as both Agents and Assassins. Lightsworn are those who have chosen to serve the Light but due to their past, race, or training are not able to walk the path of the paladin and join the Caelestis Templares. They are the reformed, the faithful and the mighty who know that the right path is the path of Faith and salvation. They are great masters of their training and feared for their excellence in battle. They are a vital part of the Light's army. Lightsworn wear their Tabards at meetings and stand alongside the Templares to the south.

Assassins are lower in rank than Agents, but they are at the same level as Lightsworn. Assassins are given tasks by the Officers of the Inquisitores and the Grand Priory of the Caelestis Templares. These tasks range from information gathering, spying, assassinations, to seeding information and counter intelligence. If they perform their several tasks well, usually five or more, they may be given more freedom to investigate what they see fit as an Agent of the Inquisitores.

Zealots are those who have proven their Faith to the Light and shown Zeal to the Light's cause by attending a meeting of the Caelestis Templares on Thursdays at 8:00pm. They may either stand with their tabards on with the Lightsworn to the south of the Templares or they may stand without their tabards anywhere they wish so long as it is not obvious they are part of the meeting. Zealots must choose their path in the Inquisitores. If they wish to serve the Inquisition as an Assassin they must perform a task for an Inquisitor, the Exarch, Master, Lord Inquisitor, or the Grandmaster. If they choose the path of the Inquisition their identity becomes their chief concern and they seldom wear their tabards. If a Zealot wishes to serve in the Lightsworn army they proudly wear their tabard and must participate in battle under the leadership of a Lieutenant, the General, Master, Lord Commander, or the Grandmaster. Choosing one of the branches over another is not final, but it becomes hard to serve the Inquisition when everyone knows who you are. It is always possible to hide your face, but sometimes it is best to blend in. It is a choice ever Zealot must make, but one none take lightly.

Novitiates are those who have entered the order and wish to serve the Light. When they attend their first meeting they will be promoted to Zealots for showing their Zeal.

The Inquisition wear their tabards only when they wish to intimidate their enemies. Wearing the tabard gives away that you are a member of the Inquisition. Often members of the Inquisition such as Agents and Assassins only wear their tabard when they are about to kill their target so no one but the dead will ever know who they kill. Giving away that you serve the Inquisition can compromise your ability to infiltrate the enemy. While they are expected to attend, Agents and Assassins hardly ever attend meetings wearing theiri tabard unless their face is covered. Mostly they stand in the back or to the side and try to blend into the crowd to listen for information or heresy. It they do have their face covered and want to attend in tabard they stand in line to the North of the Templares at the left hand of the Grandmaster.

The Army of the Lightsworn always wear their tabards unless they are doing something that requires surprise or special tactics. The Army of the Lightsworn is proud of its service to the Light and as such wear their tabard at meetings. They stand in line to the South of the Templares at the right hand of the Grandmaster.
