The Open Lord of Waterdeep is not foolish enough to
install a force of soldiers from his home city. Such an
act would make his efforts seem like an occupation
and would fuel the Sons of Alagondar insurgency.
Instead, to avoid the appearance of imperialism, the
protector relies on soldiers from the distant island of
Mintarn, most of whom are sellswords and former
pirates. They operate under a tough-as-nails mercenary
named Sabine. She serves as Neverember’s chief
enforcer in the city and has come to represent the
harsher aspects of his beneficence.
The force – mostly human warriors – patrols
the streets in a strict, militaristic rotation.
Under Sabine’s leadership, the mercenaries ruthlessly
quash disturbances and work to eradicate dangers
to Neverwinter and its people.
