Although major issues are resolved by the Hands of Order themselves, many local Sheenois matters fall within the jurisdiction of the City Administration. The City and Parish Guards are run by the Administration, and taxes from merchant activities are collected by Administration clerks. The Guards and the Administration’s courts enforce law and order in Sheene and its environs, although high profile cases may be heard by a priest of Saint Cuthbert or in rare cases by the Hands themselves. The City prison lies underneath the Administration building; Guard offices are built into the city walls in each of the six battlements. If necessary, the City Guard also functions as a fire brigade.
The current City Administrator is a human male named Delmont “Tipsy” Tipperton; the captain of the City Guards is an old human male named Colm Dunnadee, whose second-in-command is Finnegan Dunnadee. The captain of the Parish Guards (who patrol the greater Sheenois metropolitan area) is a male halfling named Bronco Benmarco.
