Shards of Ice is a Science Fiction piece about the head of the King’s Bodyguards and a Vigilante, and how they both have secrets that they can’t share.
D’Authian Guards are the royal body guards, set up by Royal Decree in the 9th Cycle. They are an elite group of defenders, who also defend the Crown City of Althu.

They’re unable to make any decisions regarding or affecting the monarchy, but they ratify those laws and decrees that the Monarchy make.
