"Warchief" was a title used by The Warriors to refer to their second-in-command. Until the meeting, Swan held the title of Warchief. However, following Cleon's death, Swan assumed the role of Warlord, and it is implied that Snow became the gang's Warchief.
Warchief could also be used flexibly to the second-in-command of a Warparty when the gang were on a mission.
