The Unseen Watch
The Redcloak Battalion
The soldiers of the Redcloak Battalion are among the deadliest warriors in Sharn. When a situation calls for extreme military force, both the Sharn Watch and the King’s Citadel turn to the Redcloak Battalion. This elite unit fought at the forefront of the Last War, and the bards in Menthis still sing songs of the exploits of Khandan the Hammer and Meira the Huntress. At the end of the war, the battalion was split up, and one unit was assigned to Sharn. Its headquarters sits in the Daggerwatch district of Upper Dura. Many of the members of the Redcloak Battalion resent being relegated to law enforcement, and there is a strong sense of rivalry between the Redcloaks and the King’s Swords of the Citadel, who generally have less military experience but nonetheless possess far more authority and prestige. As battle scarred veterans of the Last War, many of the soldiers have strong prejudices against travelers from the other nations; as far as the Redcloaks are concerned, the Treaty of Thronehold is merely an intermission, and soon King Boranel will come to his senses and fi nish the job Wroann ir’Wynarn began.
