The City Guard

  • There are three branches of the City Guard currently in Freehaven. The bulk of the City Guard are called The Watch, and are essentially the first line of defense for the city. They patrol all districts of the city, on foot or on horseback and deal with crimes as they come across them. All recruits fresh out of the Training Academy start off as members of the Watch and most will never attain anything higher than that. Each member of the Watch is assigned to a District precinct and then assigned to a unit of up to a dozen others. Each precinct is overseen by a Guard Sergeant, the highest rank one can attain in the Watch.
  • The second branch of the City Guard are called the Officers. Talented, devoted and well connected members of the Watch are promoted to Officer and are given a badge and a deep blue Mage-Worked cloak as a symbol of their new position. These Officers handle the high profile crimes such as murders, drug rings, arson and kidnappings. The Officers operate out of Justice Hall in Hightown. They respond to crimes in any district and usually command a lot of fear and respect from the citizens of Freehaven, unlike members of the Watch. The Officers are overseen by a Guard Captain, the highest rank one can achieve while an Officer.
  • The final branch of the City Guard are the Free Agents. The Free Agents are a small group of extremely talented, devoted or connected Officers that are handpicked by the current Mayor to combat major threats that affect the entire city. They answer only to the current Mayor and are usually disbanded when the Mayor leaves office. The current Mayor, Mayor Winters, has not yet picked anyone to become her Free Agents.
