What I’m curious to know is: What are all those guards going to do? It’s like that riddle from A Clash of Kings.

Well, in the previous chapter, Fezay, Rayana, and Kahal specifically mentioned they’ve spent the past few months purging disloyalty out of the palace guard.

So the answer to what the guards are going to do is probably “whatever the Caliph wants.”

That’s not the conflict I was referring to. How do you know that some of them won’t remain loyal to their captain, rather than a seemingly treacherous monarch?

Well, when the Caliph ordered the palace guard to throw their Captain in chains and sell him into slavery, they bowed and said “Yes, sir!”. So that would seem to indicate they’re pretty loyal to him personally.

Also, what treachery? As far as the guard knows, the palace was just attacked (and not even all of them know that) and now the Caliph is having a hurried late-night conference with a visiting monarch and with a powerful bannerman, who they MAYBE know the Princess, the Chief Advisor, and the Captain of the Guard and his predecessor personally dislike.

That’s all they know.

I don’t think I like you anymore, Caliph.
