City of the Beast
The City Guard is exactly what it sounds like. These are the brave men/women/other that fight crime and uphold the law within the city. Their structure has a strict heirarchy, with Chief Constable at the top, who oversees everything, and reports monthly to the council. At the bottom however, is individual, relatively autonomous, wards. Each ward contains roughly ten to twenty officers, and is in charge of a specific sub section of the city. These wards report up through several tiers of bureaucracy until they reach a guard quadrant that is responsible for oversight of their quadrant of the city. These highly fortified buildings act as courthouse, prison, and offices for the paper pushers that staff them. For all intensive purposes, these quadrants are entirely autonomous military like forces. At the head of these are quadrant chiefs who report to the Chief Constable about what they believe is important.
The city guard is willing to hire any that apply, and are in good standing with the law.
