The Protector's Champion was a high-ranking Protectorate of Grayson official, the most recent recipient of the Star of Grayson, who served as the symbolic guardian of the Protector, carrying the Grayson Sword of State.
Duties[edit | edit source]
The Protector's Champion held the power of High, Middle, and Low Justice. Any Steadholder accused of wrong-doing had the right to trial by combat rather than being judged by the Protector. Victory against the Protector’s Champion was the equivalent of an innocent verdict and dismissal of all charges. (HH5, HH9)

- Before Steadholder Burdette challenged the decree that his life was forfeit, no Steadholder had challenged a Protector's decree in over three hundred years. (HH5)
- The only other known recipient of the Star of Grayson was Isaiah Mackenzie, Steadholder Mackenzie. As he served as captain-general of Protector Benjamin the Great's army, he was very likely also Protector's Champion.
