The Pale Guard is peacekeeping and law enforcement organization protecting Whitestone, led by the Pale Lord of Wardship (or the Commissioner of Wardship), a position within the Chamber of Whitestone appointed by the de Rolo family.[1][2] Because crime has become rare in Whitestone by 836 PD, it eventually became largely concerned with civic tasks such as helping new visitors find their way around town, escorting foreign dignitaries, and performing diplomatic roles.[1] The Pale Guard often gently turns away locals who gather to watch the Whitestone Rifle Corps train behind Whitestone Castle,[3] and it maintains a night watch at the templates in the Greyfield cemetery to destroy any dead woken by lingering traces of Delilah Briarwood's necromancy.[4]

Those of the Pale Guard wear armor visibly marking them as members,[5] and they are allowed to carry three-barreled pepperbox revolvers if carrying out a task requiring one.[1] In 843 PD, their uniform consisted of dark metallic armor with dark gray cloaks lined in pale yellow.[6]

A member of the Pale Guard volunteered to walk through the ziggurat sphere underneath the city in 811 PD and did not return, stopping anyone else from further volunteering.[7]
