Proposed Canon

The title Chief may refer to either the leader of a tribe of Natural Allies, or as a shorthand for Chief Warlord, Chief Caster, and Chief of Staff.

Tribal Leader

A Chief (or Chieftain) is a unit that, belonging to a Natural Allies tribe, commands that tribe like the Ruler or a Warlord of a Side. All units from the Chief's tribe know his will by Natural Thinkamancy, even from other hexes. A tribe can have more than one Chief.

Unlike Rulers, a unit neither needs to pop as such nor be designated as an heir to become Chief. Nor does croaking a Chief destroy their "side." Being the last surviving unit of the tribe makes that unit a Chief. It is unknown how the succession works when all the current Chiefs croak. Perhaps the knight unit with the highest level becomes chief.
