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.

All guardians also have a health meter on the right of the screen that shows your (or rather your host's) remaining health, which ranges from 100% (Host has 100 health, no injuries) to 0% (Host has -100 health and in hardcrit). Since your host will begin to suffer from their injuries even at around 75-50% health remaining, you should always keep an eye on this and keep your host safe or duck into cover to prevent them from being killed. When a host is severely injured (-100 health) or outright killed, the guardian drawing life force from them also dies.

Additionally, all guardians can move in space or areas lacking gravity without issue. You can even pull your host along to function as a makeshift jetpack should they lack one!


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 two 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.
  • Holoparasite injectors created by the Syndicate and purchased with a traitor uplink can be used to manifest a nanomachine based creature.

Description Abilities
As an Explosive type, you have only moderate close combat abilities, dealing 15 damage and resisting 40% of damage you take, but are capable of converting any adjacent item into a disguised bomb via alt click. While not too damaging to nearby structures, anyone who triggers the bomb will take moderate brute damage and be stunned for a few seconds.

Note that targets must interact directly with the trapped object (i.e. click it) for the bomb to go off, running into it or over it won't trigger the explosive!

Place bombs that trigger once someone clicks on it, stunning and dealing heavy damage to them, and them only. This ability does not affect the summoner, and can be used without manifesting.

Protection Mode also creates a barrier to the left and right of the guardian, which only they and their host can pass through and also resists 90% of damage to them. Additionally, unlike other Guardians, it is the summoner who snaps back to the out-of-range Guardian, not the other way around.
