Win or Die
The Grand Maester is elected by the Conclave, the ruling body of the Archmaesters of the Citadel. Traditonally the Grand Maester is invited to join the Small Council by the king, but the king is in no way obligated to do so.
The Grand Maester is a source of wisdom, knowledge, and insight as well as a representative of the Faith of the Seven. They are expected to provide the King, Hand, and Council with clear-headed and practical advice as well as necessary moral guidance.
