Dick Ashton (Watch Captain)
Ashton is a newly-promoted captain of the watch. The previous captain was greedy, and ran a protection racket, extorting money from the city's merchants. Ashton found out about the racket. An honest man, he was instrumental in stopping it and bringing the captain to justice. Many of the watch were involved in the racket, and don't look favourably on the loss of income, which they blame on Ashton.
Ashton didn't want or expect the promotion, but wasn't given an opportunity to refuse. Now that he's got the job, he's determined to do it well, although it won't be easy.
