This article is about the guild lords of Tai-tastigon. For the guild lords of Kothifir, which are significantly different, see Kothifiran guild lords.

The Sirdan is the high lord of a guild in Tai-tastigon.[1] The reign and domain of a sirdan is known as a sirdanate.[2][3] The term mostly appears in God Stalk, referring to Theocandi, Sirdan of the Thieves' Guild,[4] but other guilds also have Sirdans.[5] In the Thieves' Guild, the Sirdan is elected or reelected every 7 years,[6] and other guilds likely follow similar practices.
