The guards and wardens of the Chelish city of Kintargo are known as the Kintargo Dottari. They are commanded by Duxotas Vannases Trex, who is the city's "high warden" and answers only to Lord-Mayor Barzillai Thrune.[1]

The name dottari is used to denote Chelish city guards elsewhere in the country, such as the Westcrown Dottari.[2]


In the decades before Lord-Mayor Thrune arrived and scoured the city's dottari, it had a reputation for being loose with enforcing the city's laws, which cost it at least one recruit.[3]


Members of the Kintargo Dottari wear black leather or chainmail armor trimmed in red, and the Chelish emblem (a red circle quartered by a cross) on their shields.[4]

The dottari also serve as the city's excrutiators, meting out public corporal punishment against prisoners on Lord-Mayor Thrune's orders. In this role, they wear black leather trousers and chainmail aprons with hoods that obscure their faces.[5]


Duxotas Trex was appointed by Lord-Mayor Thrune upon his appointment to the city by House Thrune. She demands loyalty and compliance from her subordinates, many of whom were also brought from outside of Kintargo by Lord-Mayor Thrune to replace existing dottari officers.[1]

In most of Kintargo, its dottari patrols in groups of three and actively enforces Lord-Mayor Thrune's 9 a.m.-to-6 p.m. curfew alongside the sanctioned Chelish Citizens' Group militia.[6]


The dottari maintain a central barracks and administrative space in Castle Kintargo, and man several towers in the city's walls.[1] These towers also contain holding cells for criminals and political detainees before they are transferred to the Holding House or Kintargo Keep.[7]
