The city wardens were the most powerful crime lords in The City. They ruled organized crime throughout the City and paid serious bribes to some of the City Watch officials in order to get away with their business. Each one of them was responsible for specifics areas of the City, known as wards, and each had a group of tough boys at their disposal.
As of Thief Gold, the wards were divided as follows:
- Ramirez - Hightowne, South Quarter and Stonemarket
- Raputo – North Quarter, Shalebridge, New Quarter and Newmarket
- Webster – Docks, Eastport and Dayport
It is unknown what completely happened to the Warden's status with the Watch under Sheriff Truart, or the death of Ramirez.
