A master ten at Tentir, the randon college, is the senior cadet ten-commander in charge of their respective house's barracks; there is thus one for each major house. The position is often held by returned third years.[1]

If a House's Lordan is attending Tentir, they are automatically appointed master ten of their House's barracks, as in the cases of Timmon, Gorbel, and Jame.[2] Beneath the master ten is a ten commander for each set of ten and a five in that set of ten. Brier Iron-thorn is Five in Jame's Ten.

A master ten is also the senior ten-commander in a hundred, and is effectively the hundred-commander's executive officer.
