the captain of the guard

Between the inner and outer perimeter, the old Imperial city forms a maze of twisty passages, all alike; only the captain of the guard knows every turning.

It’s widely suspected that captain of the guard learned those turnings not through personal experience – although he certainly spends enough time out of his office – but by memorizing maps left by his predecessors, and that he has a secret duty to verify and preserve them for his successor.
