The Night Watch Militia was an independant organization created to defend Darkshire from the many dangers of Duskwood. It was first established after the Kingdom of Stormwind pulled their troops out of Duskwood due to Lady Katrana Prestor's influence. Even after King Varian Wrynn's return, the taxes from the War against the Lich King have made it so not a soldier can be spared to protect Darkshire. It was led by Commander Althea Ebonlocke, daughter to the mayor of Darkshire, Lord Ello Ebonlocke.
The organization currently serves as Duskwood's first and only line of defense against the dangers that plague the land including: Nightbane Feral Worgen, Undead, Orge, and Necromancers threats.
Night Watch units can be seen patrolling the land's roads and vast forests at any given time, protecting the gnarled wood's people from threats that the vast woodland holds. The crafty warriors stalk their undead prey, avoiding direct confrontation with supernatural and mundane opponents. The carefully placed tracks of a member of the Night Watch militia typically lead pursuers into a deadly ambush where eager warriors wait with bows ready.
Return of the LegionEdit
For unknown reasons, following the return of the Burning Legion to Azeroth, most of the Night Watch and the Council of Darkshire have defected to the demons and formed the Veiled Hand along with several other Stormwind traitors, such as Captain Melris Malagarn of the Stormwind City Guard. The Watch murdered at least a quarter of the citizens of Darkshire in order to summon the Legion in Duskwood. Commander Ebonlocke was later assassinated by Garona Halforcen and an unidentified Master Assassin of the Uncrowned.
Watcher Sarah Ladimore is the last known member of the Night Watch stationed in Darkshire who has not defected to the Legion.
