The Sheriff Bow Guards are the main range fighters of the City Watch, but are not as common as the swordsmen. They have the same relative low health as the rest of the force (except the Sergant) and have a low accuracy at medium to long distances. However, they have an effective critical hit of about 8 point at close range. From medium distances the arrows do approximately 1 to 4 points of damage and miss often.
Other than the bow, the Sheriff Bow Guard can be identified by the archer gloves, the quiver on their back and the strap that goes from the right shoulder to the left of the waist as opposite of the swordsmen.
One of the archers guarding the southern gate of Shoalsgate Station has the appearance of a woman but the voice of a man.
