These riders are entrusted with the life of their chief, and are highly skilled an dedicated to their task. They are expected to shadow the chief at all times and, if necessary, lay down their lives to protect him. This is one of the highest honours available to a warrior, and those that are afforded it will proudly show their status.
Chiefs were often chosen for previous acts of valour and were men that other warriors respected and would follow accordingly. Although chiefs held the power to make decisions in the tribe the elders had the power to over rule them on any decisions that did not focus on the good side of the tribe. These tribal elders were also responsible for choosing a new chief when the previous one died.
The Chief's Bodyguard has far more riders per regiment than the Western equivalent, the General's Bodyguard (Western). This makes it much more durable and useful as a force. It is also stronger than the Eastern General's bodyguard, and arguably more versatile than the Indian General's bodyguard, although the latter's fear effects and range abilities may seem more impressive.
