Like in most Drake cities and unlike Human custom, members of the City Watch have a prestigious, well-paid job. Also as a tradition among Drake City Watches, Zevara make her Watch swear on truth spell that they weren’t criminal each month.
To become a Guardsman in the City Watch one can't just sign up, but has to be voted in. At least 50 citizens have to vouche for that person to be allowed entrance to the Watch. A high level of competence is expected.
The requirements to become a Senior Guardsman are even harsher. At least 400 hundred people have to vote for one person to get promoted. The Watch Captain also has her say in promotions, and may also demote members for offenses in office.
The City Watch possesses considerable power, as they have a few members who could be considered Silver-rank adventurers, and at least one at the level of a Gold-rank. In total, the watch had 4000 members in book 1.
Most members of the Watch are former soldiers. On one hand, it means that they have many combat classes, making it easier for them to stop fights. On the other hand, it means that they possess less levels in the [Guardsman] class, resulting in lack of better skills that would make it much easier for them to do certain parts of their jobs. For example, almost no one has tracking skills, making it much harder for them to chase criminals.
The Watch carries healing potions with them in case someone gets hurt. They’re not supposed to use them unless someone’s really hurt, though. The healing potions the Senior Guardsmen carry are even stronger, as they can heal most big injuries in moments. Unless someone lose an arm or a body part, they be fine in moments.
The walls of Liscor are always patrolled by at least forty members of the watch, ten for each cardinal direction of the wall, and at least one pair of Senior Guardsmen. That is the minimum requirement for any Drake city at any time. That said, after the recent incidents, which includes the battle against the Goblin Lord, the Raskghar, the number was increased to two hundred [Guardsmen].

- Klbkch is the fourth-best [Guardsman] in Liscor when it came to combat prowess. And that had been before he’d changed bodies.
- Liscor's City Watch has about 30 Senior Guards.
- Aside from Klbkch and Zevara herself, Jeiss is considered the 3rd best bladesman in the Watch.
