The Redguard are the King and Queen’s personal bodyguards, as well as their favoured troops. They are technically an elite branch of the Stormcrows, and it is from the former that most of their members come. Despite this, they never do the ‘menial’ tasks of their brethren; they never patrol the streets nor act as watchmen, and they rarely act as templars. When not at war, their job is mainly ceremonial, guarding the palace, as well as acting as escorts for the King. They also guard the Royal tombs, in the cathedral at Ost-Firir. However, they are fierce warriors indeed, and in a battle are feared greatly by the enemy. The shining red armour which gives them their name is forged in the King’s personal armoury, and is enchanted to repel and dispel any magic cast upon the Redguard (similar to the amulets worn by the Inquisition). They are usually seen fighting in the king’s personal retinue, along side his knights, and they have the honour of bearing the king’s personal banner.

Unlike the Stormcrows, the Redguard are commanded solely by the King, and they do not take orders for Inquisitors, unless commanded to do so by their lord. Unlike the Conquistidores, the Redguard are neither egotistical or proud- their rigorous training and solemn oaths mean they are simply great warriors, sometimes seeming emotionless. They have no fear of death or fighting, and each has been individually blessed by the church entry into the Redguard is extremely strict, and only a Stormcrow of extreme prowess and undying loyalty to the King will be selected as a candidate. The king chooses from the candidates which warriors he would like to serve him.

The Redguard live in their own personal barracks, the Redhall, attached to the palace of the King.
