General is a senior military rank, which is only outranked by a marshal. Although they may command a theme, the rank is not used in the same manner as it is in the real world, nor is it mentioned if different grades of general exist. Instead, the rank can be more specialised, as the General-Master-of-Labours, General-Master-of-Palliateers, and Comptroller-Master General have their own commands at Winstermill, each focusing on specific areas of expertise. The Warden-General's status as the second highest ranking officer in command on the Conduit Vermis effectively makes him a general.

The rank is mentioned in a doggerel sung by Numps about "some old general with a wooden leg and no army".[1]
