The Vhatran Guard provides law enforcement and protective services for Wyvar under the command of the archduke. The watchmen are used to protect nobles and the dwimmerwells, but also to sniff out and eliminate threats to the archduke’s governance and the protect the prosperity of the city. The Vhatran Guard are infamous for holding “silent courts,” which is the capturing of the accused, holding the trial, and carrying out the sentence outside of the public eye and even without the knowledge of the archduchy’s government. They are, besides the archduke’s own court, the only organization allowed to hold Blood Court, meaning they have the right to exact capital punishment. While most of the night watch in the city are private citizens who are paid swarf-penny by the ward they serve, the Vhemic Guard take it upon themselves to patrol the vast tunnel system underneath the city that connects to the dwimmerwells and to the ancient Nonman undercity.
