This article is about an older version of DF.

Your sheriff gets promoted to Captain of the Guard at a population of 50 dwarves, typically along with the arrival of the Mayor. The Captain of the Guard leads the fortress guard, which aids the Captain in the enforcement of justice. Assigning dwarves to the fortress guard delights the Captain, and is important to ensure that justice is dispensed in a timely manner.

The Captain of the guard is notable for being the only noble which is upgraded from an existing one - for all other nobles, the higher-ranked versions arrive separately and require an additional set of rooms (and make additional mandates).
