The Deadwatch is the traditional name of the bodyguards of the rulers of the Flesh-Eater Courts.[1a]


Like much of the titles and ritual of the Flesh-Eater Courts, the Deadwatch are a twisted reflection of the court of Ushoran in the Age of Myth. Ushoran's bodyguard was known as the Harrow Wrath, and their skill and discipline in defending the realm against the terrors of Shyish earned them the honour Watchers of the Dead.[1c]


The leader of a court's Deadwatch is usually a Crypt Infernal Courtier accorded the title Lord Marrowbroth, who commands flights of Crypt Flayers.[1a][1b]
