In the RPG

Icon-RPG.png This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.

The Stormwind City Guard (or just the City Guard)[4] patrols the streets and walls of the capital of the Kingdom of Azeroth keeping the public safe. This smaller unit would patrol the street during times of peace. During times of war, several of these units combine under a subcommander, who in turn operates under the auspices of a commander-in-chief. If a fighting force were to penetrate the walls of Stormwind, these smaller units would engage intruders, buying time for the army to respond. As a note, the Stormwind army can also muster together quickly and provide aerial and magical support for the city's militia during an invasion.[5]

Sergeant Mandred Grummel is a commander within the guard[5] and Cristof Dungalion is a guard.[6]

Notes and trivia

  • After being captured a third time for theft, a criminal is condemned to be hanged by the Stormwind Guard, this was notably the case of Pathonia Shaw before she agreed to work as an assassin for the kingdom.[7]
