Major General was a senior commissioned officer of the Templar Marine Corps and Twilight Trooper Corps, equal in rank to Rear Admiral in the Templar Navy. Major Generals commanded large scale forces, up to Divisions, normally around 12,000 troops, vehicles, and other equipment. They also serve as high-level staff officers at major commands.
In informal settings, Major Generals are typically referred to simply as "General". A Major General may be also referred to as a "two-star General" to distinguish it from the other ranks of General; so named for the two star rank insignia worn on the uniform.
Skilled Gurei Shishous and some Gin Shishous were given this rank when commanding ground forces. Regardless of the individuals skills and rank in the Templars any Templar with this rank will hardly ever command more than 15,000 troops, vehicles and equipment. The exception to this was Vincent Mikaru I. When he returned from being in stasis for 50 years he was given the rank of Major General and placed in command of all of Sekot's Defense systems and the Marines on planet, which at the time was 25,000 troops, support personnel, vehicles, and equipment. At the same Time Leonias Colcha held the same rank and commanded the Heritage Legion which was also part of the planets defenses.
