The local guard of Silverscale acts as the city's police force, security, and defensive army in times of attack. The Scalebreakers are a subgroup of the Guard. Corruption in the ranks of the Gaurd is rare, but it does occur. Any serious offenses are stamped out by <<silver>> himself. Head of the guard is Captain Arkisa, a female dragonborn paladin of Bahamut. Aside from her gruff demeanor and strict personality, her most notable features are the large wings sprouting from her back. No one who has seen the Captain can doubt her devoton to the tenets of Bahamut. She has a seat on the City Council, though she loathes beauracracy and administrative work, prefering to oversee the Guard in person, observe the training of new soldiers, and of course preciding over the training of the Scalebreakers herself.
