The Lady's Ward
The Lady’s Ward is probably the most important ward in all of Sigil. It is filled with broad, open
avenues, the architecture flaunting its spacious areas like its owners flaunt their wealth. Every main
street is cold, broad and echoing, and a cutter can see huge swathes of the sky, more than anywhere
else in the Cage. Most Cagers don’t care for the view, ‘cause the view’s a bit too big. From the edge,
some say a cutter can see right into that endless Void, and a smart cutter knows that that fall is infinite.
You just see black, and you never hit bottom, you just die along the way. It’s a convenient way to get
rid of bodies quietly in this part of town. Most cutters spend as little time as possible on the ward’s
streets, under what passes in the Cage for an open sky.
It’s called The Lady’s Ward after the Lady of Pain. Not that she lives here more than anywhere
lese, it’s just that she keeps her tools here: the City Barracks, the City Courts, the Prison, and the
Armory – all the things that define her power and enforce her will. Since power attracts power, bloods
set their cases in The Lady’s Ward.
