Is there a leader of the whole grey knights chapter like a grand grand master or something, if there is, who is it?
I think he's mentioned in the book 'Grey Knight's by Ben Counter, from the Black Library.
it's a pretty cool read, it gives a lot of info into the organisation of the chapter, the fortress-monastery on the moon Titan (orbiting Jupiter in the Sol system), it's relation to the inquisition etc etc...
There is more than one Grand Master, the fluff says that one of them sits on the council of the =][=.
"I am the Hammer"
"I am the tip of the spear"
"I am the gauntlet about His fist"
"I am His wrath!"
"I am am the bane of all deamonkind!!"
According to the old fluff, the Chapter Master of the Grey Knights is not a Space Marine himself, but rather a member of the Inquisition, and it is he that sits in the Council of the Inquisition. I donâ€™t think he has been named in any of the fluff, though. Below him in the hierarchy is a number of Grand Masters, who function as force commanders for larger contingents of Grey Knights and other Inquisitional troops, and these are the ones that appear to make the actual leadership decisions. In the novel â€˜Grey Knightsâ€™ by Ben Counter a group of Inquisitors approaches a Grand Master to ask for a number of Grey Knights to accompany them on a mission and the Grand Master chooses which Marines to send, so the Chapter Master appears to be more of a front figure and less of an actual leader of the Chapter.
