Helping to mete out the town’s good justice, deputy Belor Hemlock keeps watch over Sandpoint’s people. Although rarely faced with misconduct more severe than vandalism and public drunkenness, the deputy is both a keen wit and a skilled swordsman, and openly proves both when the rare crime requires it.
While a town’s enforcer, Hemlock knows the difference between the word of the law and its intent, and often gives those under his protection the benefit of the doubt.
Their deputy’s work aside, Sandpoint’s people realize they must often fend for and defend themselves, especially on the outlying farms. In the rarest and most extreme cases (and even then it is thoroughly discouraged) mob justice is sometimes all that satisfies the outraged people.
