COA Toussaint Ducal Guard Tw3

The Toussaint Ducal Guard is a force serving as both the police of Beauclair and vineyards as well as border guard in the small duchy within the Nilfgaardian Empire. Since the duchy is in constant peace with every realm and does not participate in conflicts between Nilfgaardians and Northern Kingdoms, the guard tend to fight just against bandit hanses side by side with Knights Errant. The only location that is not protected by this guard is Dun Tynne and surroundings, which is under the surveillance of the Dun Tynne Guard.

When it comes to the safety of important personalities, such as Duchess Anna Henrietta, or completing difficult missions, like for example the attack on Dun Tynne, then the Ducal Honor Guard (alternativelly Palace Guard) is summoned under direct command of its captain, which is Damien de la Tour during the events of the Blood and Wine expansion.

Equipment Edit

There are some variations regarding the guards' kit. The ones protecting the city are usually equipped with standard steel swords and halberds while the ones guarding vineyards are sometimes provided with military crossbows. Then there are also palace guardians with beautifully decorated long-swords, different halberds, crossbows and sometimes shields.

And after all, there is also a significant member of the guard, who serves as an executioner at the prison. Since this brute is a true professional, his weapon of choice is a double bit axe.
