I wonder - where would The Praetorian fall in all of this?

Oh yeah, he doesn't technically exist.
Merciful Father, I have squandered my days with plans of many things. This was not among them. But at this moment, I beg only to live the next few minutes well. For all we ought to have thought, and have not thought; all we ought to have said, and have not said; all we ought to have done, and have not done; I pray thee God for forgiveness.

Praetorian is B10 - Black Operative. That's his official rank. Hence the reason why he doesn't exist. It's a standard Black Op perk.

Heh - true that.  Although, there's something to be said about being both a black op AND the HEAD of intelligence.

Quite true.

This is over a year old.. almost 18 month old... but I realized I was a bit dumb. In reality, he's a B11R/B10H. Basically, he was head of intelligence, but now has an honorary rank of black operative.

...This is important. Or Might be. For reasons untold! (until they are.)
