Bastions are the citizen militia and guards of Vasselheim, comprising about a quarter of the city's population. They consist of volunteers from each district and religion. They primarily operate in their respective districts, but this includes manning the sections of the city walls adjoining their district and the siege engines contained therein. Their volunteer status would technically make them more of a "militia" than a formal "military" but they are quite capable and act as the city's army in an event of an attack.
Bastions can also be called on to serve as investigators for crimes in the city.
