The Security Guard was a male Human who lived in London, United Kingdom on the planet Earth during the 20th century. He was a security guard for the faceless victims of the Wire and considered them brainless. (DW: The Idiot's Lantern)
In an interview on Muppet Central, Steve Whitmire recalled, "The first time I ever did a speaking part, I was doing a guard that was outside Liberace’s dressing room door. Jim gave me this part to do, to try me in a speaking role, and I was terrible." Although Whitmire cites this as his first speaking role, he did perform Winky Pinkerton in episode 308 which was taped one week earlier. However, "speaking role" may depend on your point of view, as that character's lines are a set of bird impressions: "Cluck. Tweet-tweet. Cock-a-doodle doo."

|Examine||A retired RuneScape Security Guard.|
|Notable features||Former random event which still gives players a Security book.|
The Security guard used to be a random event. If a player has their recovery questions set, the guard gives them a security book, another reward, and recommendation to come to the Stronghold of Security.
Since the Random event update, the Security Guard travels around random places and hands out free security books to anyone talking to him. He will teleport to other places a few minutes after being talked to. When he leaves, he will say, "Well, I best be off!", or "Ah, time I was off now, bye!"
If players spoke to him he gave players a security book and any of the following rewards:

The guard could also be attacked and killed. Despite his maximum hit of 2, he had extremely high Defence and a total of 250 Hitpoints. The damage done to him only gave you a quarter of an experience point per damage done. If it took too long to kill him, he eventually disappeared. If a player did decide to fight him, he was weak to stab attacks, ranged and magic. Additionally, if you teleported away he would say 'He/She got away!' before disappearing.
If the player already possessed a security book in their inventory, the NPC would not provide another one.

The Security Guard corps was composed of somewhere between five and six thousand men and women as of 32 BBY, though this number was commonly raised during times of tension in the Royal Court. Many Security Guards were natives of Naboo who had performed off-world military service, though it was known for nobles or businesspeople to receive martial training within the Security Guard before joining its ranks. Training was roughly similar to the galactic standard for a local police force.
Security Guards commonly served as sentries and patrolmen in Theed, and the group was adept at handling riots and other civic disturbances, though military analysts did not believe the corps could defend Naboo against a military ground assault—such as that performed by the Trade Federation during the Invasion of Naboo. Security Guards commonly served fifteen standard hours a week on average, and most tended to remain with the unit for two years. They were outfitted with a yellow-and-brown armored uniform, and carried CR-2 blaster pistols, though in times of peril, the guards were equipped with blaster rifles.
This could not save two prominent guards from being killed in an assassination attempt on Padmé Amidala when their ship returned with her to Coruscant for the Senate vote on the Military Creation Act. Rumors that the guard shown below standing in the ship was a suicide bomber were false, as the terrorist responsible for murdering the guards and Padmé's handmaiden Cordé was in fact bounty hunter Zam Wesell, who worked for the Confederacy of Independent Systems via fellow bounty hunter Jango Fett.
Following the assassination of King Veruna, the Security Guard quelled uprisings by elements of the Ralthar Syndicate. Prior to and during the Trade Federation invasion, the Security Guard was led by Captain Panaka. Though unable to withstand the invasion of Naboo, the Security Guard assisted underground resistance movements, and fought in the Second Battle of Theed.
