Long time ago in Wesfolk dark mages have accurate organization and hierarchy of the thirteen levels, but those days are long gone. Now there are only apprentices and their masters and every apprentice eventually become master and recruit its own apprentices. Although former mentor is the authority for dark mage, he isn't not obliged to obey him. On the other hand there are respected masters of dark arts in each region. Their names are known and their opinion is matters. Paladines also aware of these mages, giving them the highest level of threat - ''Tenebrarum Haeresiarches''. They themselves are don't have collective name as each of them well known to all of the dark mages personally.
