Template:Writer "Shipmaster does have a nice ring to it even if it has lost all literal meaning"
-a group of Cephlosapians discussing rank
The rank of shipmaster was created when the Ossoona fled from the great beings. its purpose was so that each ship of survivors would have a clear leader. all though the term has no literal purpose it strikes fear into the enemies of the original Ossoona. it became a dead name for an extremely long time until a noctian read the history of the Ossoona and re-created the rank for the Enforcers of Noctian Reign
although the rank was literally dictator of a ship it has now been adapted. it currently is a high ranking officer with both political and military power
- only Ossoona could hold the rank of Shipmaster
