Magister is a title held by wealthy and powerful individuals in some Free Cities. It is similar to the qhoran or Westerosi steward.[1] They sometimes post Unsullied at their gates.[2]

Powerful magisters in Pentos elect the Prince of Pentos[3] and sometimes lend money.[4] In Braavos, magisters participate in the election of the Sealord[5]. While Lorath is nominally ruled by three princes, the city is truly ruled by a council of magisters.[6] The magisterial council of Norvos is subservient to the bearded priests of that city.[7] Conclaves of magisters rule Lys and Myr, and a similar group chooses the Archon of Tyrosh.[8]

Gluttons are greedy men as a rule, and magisters are devious.[9]
