|“||The Truart name is untainted by scandal, and I will not be the one to bring it humiliation and ruin.||”|
|— Truart in his conversation with Karras|
Sheriff Gorman Truart was a corrupt lawman who became the head of the City Watch. Truart oppressed the people, collected bribes, implemented outrageous taxes, brutally suppressed the criminal element, and seemed to have a particular personal grudge against Garrett. Truart regarded the law not as an end in itself, but rather as a means for those with power to control those who are without.
Despite his corruption and questionable morality, he did dramatically modernize the Watch, improving its efficiency and introducing a new, blue uniform. While not all of the Watchmen were fully up to date with the new system, evidenced by some city officers occasionally heard forgetting the numerical code they need to report a crime in progress, Truart's modernization efforts and his close links with the Mechanists resulted in the Watch headquarters at Shoalsgate Station wielding huge amounts of new technology.
