T Cell
Explanation

T cell lymphocytes are a high-ranking type of white blood cell. They are the commanders of your immune system. They co-ordinate all the other cells in your immune system in the battle against infection, telling them to "seek and destroy" all foreign invaders. All T cells originate from hematopoietic stem cells in your bone marrow.
