Westguard Law Enforcement

Note II: Castlegaurd is the capital city of the kingdom of Westguard.
Castlegaurd Page: Please Read before playing in Castlegaurd.
Statutes of Citizenship
All registered residents who purchase property within Castlegaurd city or Westguard Territory shall be granted citizenship under Westguard's statutes of territory. All paranormals (mages) above apprentice and novice echelons residing within Westguard and its capital city must be registered at the magistrates office in Castlegaurd, or at the Capital City's main gate, and wear the resident mage pendants provided at all times while inside the city. Practice of harmful arts is as unlawful in Westguard Territory as using weapons to harm, kill or seize another by force. All free men and women who join the Westguard Military, Arcane Retinue, or Guard shall be paid a comprehensive salary with benefits and be provided with room and board, though a decrease in pay shall go towards housing families.. All property and sales taxes are due on the 1st month of each year. If payment cannot be made, inform the magister and work out a payment plan to avoid prosecution.
Westguard has always kept track of mages in the city and territory and has always required them to register. The King has found these policies sound and beneficial to all civilians. Arcane weilders are capable of being very dangerous when they achieve higher ranks in their societies. Keeping track of them is good policy and this law protects them as much as normal (non-mage) citizens. Visiting mages shall receive 'traveler pendants' that must be turned in at the gate before they leave. If traveler pendants are removed, or if resident pendants are worn by someone they were not issued to, they are automatically transferred back to a safe-box in the guard house or office they were issued from, at what time an immediate investigation shall survey the reason for a pendant's unauthorized return.
Violence, Theft, Slavery, Persecution, Hostage Situations, Treason, and Harm shall NOT be tolerated in Castlegaurd or Westguard Territory, and anyone caught commiting these crimes shall be tried in a city court of law and be judged by Knights and officers of the Royal Court and city office as assigned by the King. All citizens are guaranteed a FAIR and JUST trial, and all cases brought before a Castlegaurd or Westguard court shall be tried on an indivual basis according to the unique circumstances of each case.

The Beqidum: The Formless Ones
All of the Beqidum have powerful possession abilities and many have possessed officers of Castlegaurd, namely the Castellarn Knights.
Beqidum Info: The greatest power of the Beqidum is possession, and it can do so from spirit, or by touch. Each Beqidum commands its own unique powers. By spirit its possession is far more powerful (by +4 d6). Whatever they possess, beit animal or sentient, they become physically, while their spirit commands their host's will and deeds. When they abandon a host, the host has no memory whatsoever of being possessed.
Because the Beqidum do not wish to expose themselves, they will only use those powers they command in seclusion, never in witness of anyone who might grow suspicious.
Androalphus: The most powerful of the Beqidum, this grand arch devil of the elements is a fallen seraphim who commands 8 Chaos Aspected paths. He also has Dead Realms Magic and Spectremancy and commands 26 legions of spirits. If this Beqidum leaves Acheron, a major event is underway.
Lucifuges: Arch devil of Ether, he commands air and shadow elements. Light repulses him and his form is the spirit of night. Like all formless he has no form but spirit. This angel is extremely vindictive and can cause death with his touch or breath. Like the rest of his kind he can also possess the living.
Tephros: This spirit can bring darkness and fire and can assume those ethereal forms. He is also an air elementalist
Phaux: the trickster. Through his ages in the pit he developed a strange sense of humor and became a master of tricks, jinxes, witty curses, and pranks. Arch master of conjuration, the illusory and phantasms
Mog: pure evil, he enjoys possessing people just to corrupt them and then abandons their coils to observe the results from the body of another person, cat, dog, or bird. Time weaver, enchanter, sorcerer. Demigod of corruption.
Haashi: Perhaps the most moral among the Beqidum, his ethics sometimes conflict with his duties.
Ikael: It depresses Ikael that he has no form of his own and so he seeks unique and beautiful specimens to possess. He seeks to steal the forms and lives of rich young noblemen to live through them as long as he can
Odri: this spirit is cynical and often expresses sarcasm through his wit. He commands the shadow path and curses, using curses to pass judgment and test character
Semyaza, Semmet: This beqidum is very curious and will attempt to possess almost anything to unearth its secrets. He is the wisest of his order and his advice is often sought by them. He can also read the mind of anything without his presence being felt. He is a powerful telepath and telekinetic
Enkur: This powerful spirit is a master of earth, shadow, and abyss elements. This formless one deceives to discover and is a hard judge of character who is prone to devour the souls of those he possesses if they fail his judgment.
Aakmhar the Overseer: not a Beqidum, but an elusive devil who acts as an enforcer to the Beqidum, and as a counter balance. His judgment rarely calls him to interfere in the affairs of the Beqidum, but he has the tools to track, identify and capture Beqidum without harming them. Aakmhar makes sure the Beqidum are fed, all accounted for, and their whereabouts known for no one else's benefit but his own duties. Very little is known about Aakmhar which either makes him very dangerous, or far too mysterious to trust. Arch Devil of Empathy. Omnipotent mental commands.
