In all matters concerning the safety of the Bawn and Caern, the Warder's word is supreme. In times of heightened danger her word can even supersede that of the Sept Alpha.

The Warder is responsible for the integrity, both spiritual and physical, of the Caern itself, and for the Wards which guard the Bawn. That is her sole and total responsibility, and it is a heavy one at that. Only the most powerful Garou of a Sept aspire to this position. In 2014, under the leadership of Jacinta, the position of sept Alpha and Warder were unified into one in order to provide better guidance to the sept. The Sept of the Triquetral Accord was unique in this, though this combination was dissolved at the beginning of 2017 back to the traditional 2 roles.

At present, the Caern Warder is Copperhead, a Cliath Metis Theurge of the Uktena.
