The Authoritive Leader perk allows the expedition to have one extra member, be it a human or animal companion. On the other hand, it also reduces maximum Sanity to 70.

With a bit of luck with recruiting new members, the negative effect of the perk can be easily outweighted. Authoritive Leader is especially useful for hunting parties, but player must first assemble such expedition.

The only way to obtain this perk is to play as Marcus Garvey, who begins the game with it.
