The Ratguards were the soldiers of Riftgard, in service to the Pure Ferret royal family of King Sarengo and his descendants. They were responsible for guarding the fort and protecting members of the royal family when they went abroad, as well as overseeing the slaves that labored at Riftgard.
The Ratguards were defeated when Trisscar Swordmaid and her companions returned to Riftgard to free the rest of the slaves imprisoned there.
