The High Lord is the Leader of the Guild. They are usually the most powerful and talented magician in the Guild at the time and are generally highly adept at use of magic. The position has only ever been held by a male.

When ascending to the rank of High Lord/Lady the candidates take part in a variety of challenges to prove themselves worthy, for example Akkarin had to duel against the twenty strongest magicians in the Guild, proving his outstanding magical strength. They must also receive the support of the monarch, Higher Magicians and the Guild as a whole.

In The Black Magician Trilogy the position is held by Akkarin who accepted the position five years prior to The Magicians' Guild.
