The Wall guard is located near Captain Jute, head of the Troll Invasion distraction and diversion. He guards a hole in the stone wall of the fortress to prevent trolls from coming through. Players are allowed to pass to proceed up the path to Death Plateau, even without talking to him. He is not fond of his job, as he is there because trolls looks like rocks, making him "look at rocks all day".
