As through a glass, and darkly...
Also known as ‘The Watch’ or ‘The Vigilant Ones’
The City Guard is commanded by a member of one of the noble families and the position is known as ‘City Marshall’. The current City Marshall is Guy du Dampierre, a confident of the Emperor and a well-respected ex-army Legate.
Each city district has a company of guard who patrol the district, enforce the law, keep the peace, and arrest criminals. Each company is commanded by an officer, normally a minor noble, called a ‘Guard Captain’. The guard captain is responsible for organising their command, including which areas are to be closely patrolled, such as wealthy homes, trade districts, and areas of military significance.
The City Guard are dressed in chain mail (AT13) and shield. They are armed with short sword, spear, and club.
