The Jaelot City Court consists of two braces of secretaries and their serving boys, the judiciary, the city alderman, and the Lord Mayor himself. This group convenes daily in the council hall of Jaelot, to preside over crimes. The list of prisoners whose cases are heard is compiled on a daily basis by the alderman. The verdict is pronounced by the judiciary, and the punishment by the alderman.

According to the story, a merciful sentence might be a swift beheading, while a severe one could involve dismemberment or breaking on the wheel before burning.
