Effect on standings upon ranks
As your rank will rise with higher militia standings, it will also drop if it goes down for a particular reason. As such, always remain careful about your actions, as you will be demoted should you lose sufficient standings.

He/she will however recover them if joining up later on, as long as his militia standings did not drop.
Your ranks are shown in the “Decoration” tab of your Character Sheet.
