Definition
someone who stands guard
  • Then he continues on, across the moat, past the sentry boxes where the CorpSeCorps armed guards once stood and the glassed-in cubicles where they'd monitored the surveillance equipment, then past the rampart watchtower with the steel door — standing forever open, now — where he'd once have been ordered to present his thumbprint and the iris of his eye.
