Guardian is an overarching term used to describe entities which attach themselves to a host and assist that host while drawing energy from them. The most commonly encountered form of guardian is the holoparasite, a creature designed by the Syndicate to assist their field operatives during missions. Guardians spirits are able to link themselves to nearly every known species, however they cannot attach themselves to a Changeling or a Vampire. Because guardians are reliant on the energy of their host to exist, most cannot travel more than a couple meters away from their host at any time.

Guardians and YOU!

Guardians will always be attached to a living person, and normally that person is also up to some traitorous activities. When a guardian is attacked, the damage it receives is transferred to its host. This means that if you spot someone standing off in a corner suspiciously taking damage while a nearby guardian is in combat, you have likely found the guardian's host. When a host is killed, the guardian drawing life force from him/her also dies.

Abilities

All guardian creatures have access to a similar set of abilities, with each different sub-type of guardian having some ability unique to them as well.

Guardian Types

Guardians can be divided into 9 subtypes and can be summoned in one of three ways.

  • Magical decks of tarot cards can be used summon a spirit from beyond the veil to aid you. These decks are most commonly found in the possession of members of the wizard federation, but some can be found on Lavaland.
  • Holoparasite injectors created by the Syndicate and purchased with a traitor uplink can be used to manifest a nanomachine based creature.
