Second Lieutenant is a junior Commissioned officer rank of the Templar Marine Corps and Twilight Trooper Corps. It is the lowest commissioned officer rank, and is equal in rank to Ensign in the Templar Navy. They are given command of platoons. Second Lieutenant is typically an entry-level rank for most commissioned officers.
A Second Lieutenant usually receives a promotion to First Lieutenant after eighteen to twenty-four months of active service. In informal settings, Second Lieutenants are referred to simply as "Lieutenant". This rank was commonly given to Initiates who had not yet been given a master, but were participating in either Corps as part of their curriculum.
