Hernessian Guards or 'Grey Elks' keep the peace in the city of Ashbane. They're a mixed organization having members from many different races and seem to promote from within. They work with the Steel Fists, although to what ends hasn't been illustrated as of yet.

They are also called 'elk guards' or 'horn guards' by common folk. Whether or not this is meant to be degrading is not yet known.
