The position of High Marshal is held by a single person within the Greater Terran Union for 20 years with no term limits, with many Marshals serving until their deaths. The position of High Marshal is the highest political position within the GTU. It was created by the Council of Marshals due to criticism of the Council's slow response to issues. It is said that the person holding the position is "first among equals" symbolizing that while it is quite prestigious to hold the title, you are still bound to the council of the people.
