“The human body has its heart. The Earth has its core. All things have a center, whence comes their deepest strength. The Templar Order, too, has its Inner Sanctum. Nine there must be, three times three.”
圣殿骑士组织内殿团（Inner Sanctum of the Templar Order）是一个由圣殿骑士组织中最优秀与最精明的成员组成的团体。他们的全体成员都对所有的圣殿骑士计划完全了解。
Any major decisions made by the Inner Sanctum was reviewed by the Guardians before passing them on to the General of the Cross and the Council of Elders for approval. The Inner Sanctum was also in charge of supervising the Grand Masters of all around the world, overseeing them and keeping their number under strict control.
The anonymous and feared inquisitors of the Inner Sanctum, the Black Crosses, enforced the Templar Code under the Nine's authority. The Sanctum giving them the authority to use any means necessary, even deadly force, to root out any corrupted members, from novice to Grand Master, from the various rites of the Order.
