A Primus is the head of one of the Traditions. Prior to the inception of the Council of Nine Mystic Traditions, the term was used by the Order of Hermes to refer to the leaders of their Houses; the first Hermetic Primi were the founders of the original twelve Houses of Hermes.

Although the feminine version of the term is Prima, that form is rarely used in modernity.

Two sets of Primi have been proven, one before and one after the Avatar Storm.
