"Designate" is a term referring to the conditional appointment of a clan role, such as caithdein. Generally, this appointment is bestowed by a council of elders.

An heir designate will inherit unless overruled on the grounds of incapacity or by the intervention of a High King or Fellowship member. This overruling would generally occur before (or during) a ceremony of investiture for the office. An heir chosen by the Fellowship instead of a council of elders automatically becomes invested without question. In this case, the ceremony becomes a formality.
