Tower Guards are soldiers that defend the Aes Sedai and the White Tower in the city of Tar Valon. They are led by the High Captain.
12,000 Tower Guards were used in the Aiel War and were part of the Great Coalition.
Alviarin, using her influence over Elaida, decreed that the Tower Guard be increased to 50,000 men. However, how large it managed to grow before Egwene took the city is unknown.
It remains to be seen whether the Tower Guard will be a part of the force that marches on Tarmon Gai'don, or whether Gareth Bryne will assume command of them.
