The Master of Recruits is a Space Marine Captain of a Codex Astartes-compliant Chapter who has been designated by the Chapter Master with the responsibility for training all of the Chapter's Neophytes and who usually also serves as the commander of the Chapter's 10th Scout Company.
He will be a skilled Veteran of hundreds of battles and a shrewd judge of character, easily able to determine what will bring out the best in the genetically-altered adolescents of the Chapter who survived their Aspirant Trials and transform them into true Astartes after they become Neophytes.
As the leader of a Scout Company, the Master of Recruits will be an expert in the irregular forms of combat that define the missions of Space Marine Scouts, including sabotage, infiltration and counterinsurgency.
