Drou was not an armsman; I'm also not sure if she carried a knife (even a Vorfemme knife . . . which would be problematic in a plebe?). But she could take down an enemy, and was surely trained in all sorts of non-knife weaponry. 

I always assumed (or maybe read) that the 20 armsman limit applied to Gregor as well.   Of course that doesn’t mean that Gregor didn’t have armies and secret service and ImpSec working for him as well.
