Jocasta Wiggs is a minor character in Night Watch. She is an apprentice assassin who has been given the assignment of finding a location from which she can kill Sam Vimes, but is not to actually commit the murder. Alice Band, her teacher at the Guild of Assassins, gave her the assignment because she was "overconfident and would benefit from some advanced field work." She comes from a long line of assassins. Four generations of the Wiggs family (J.C.R Wiggs, his son P.M.T Wiggs, his grandson S.T.D Wiggs and his great-grandson B.S.T Wiggs (all of Viper house)) were responsible for assassinating the vampire count Dragoul von Salic. Since Count Salic is currently back from the crypt and on the Open Commissions List, the Guild has decided no other assassin is to accept the commission until Jocasta graduates. She is introduced in Night Watch treading water in Sam Vimes' cesspool, not the first interaction between Vimes and the Wiggs family since he broke her father's leg in a previous attempt on his life.
