During the riot a guard has a stroke (I think triggered by an injection or injury from the inmates). It's shown in detail and the guard's face has clear signs of having had a stroke.

No graphic depictions of strokes are in the series. Shadowsight has seizures, not strokes. Some cats (such as Sagewhisker) are confirmed outside the books to have died from cardiac events.

A character is described to be a victim or "survivor" of a stroke, and it's discussed by different characters. (SOME SPOILERS FROM THIS POINT ONWARD) The player can discover that this apparent stroke is a result of psychic interference from another character.

Yes. The main twist of the book (big spoiler) is that Harrow lobotomized herself, and used necromancy to essentially give herself a stroke every time she hears the name of another character, preventing her from remembering them.
