An Inquisitor was a religious enforcer in the city of Juniper. The Inquisitors worked alongside the Custodians and the secret police of Duke Zimerlan to enforce the city's cult of the dead. The only Inquisitor to be named in the Annals was Bullock, who spent a great deal of time with the Annalist Croaker during Shadows Linger. Croaker would come to learn that Bullock only had 13 men answering to him: he was "astonished to discover how few men his office actually employed".

Croaker feigned to be an Inquisitor during his questioning of Marron Shed at the Iron Lily.

Inquisitors were respected and feared in Juniper, especially in the slums called the Buskin, although they did not often go there. They worked closely with Duke Zimerlan's secret police, which had undercover informants placed throughout the criminal underworld. Two such secret policemen were planted among the "Crater crowd", a group of Rebel worn-out fugitives from the Lady's Empire.
