Capabilities

Guardians are often those who are of noble birth or a high position of great historical or legendary importance. They have taken/been given responsibility to defend, protect and, if needed, avenge the focus of their protection, which can be an object, place, concept, or person (throne/crown, village/gate/country/planet, love/good/harmony, royal heir/chosen prophet, etc.) among other things.

To do this, they gain enhanced physical and mental capabilities, many additional mystical or magical abilities, and often specific weapons/tools that allow them to perform superhuman or supernatural feat to help their cause.

Universal Differences

  • In some universes, guardians do not deal with other worldly issues but issues in their own world.
  • Guardians may need to complete a series of challenges or tasks in or to be chosen.
  • Some guardians may play a part within a prophecy.
  • Some guardians may posses a unique power.
  • Some may be chosen to be guardians due to their bloodline, or heritage.
  • Some may choose to be guardians due to their sense of justice.
  • Some guardians may be blessed with the spirit of the chosen one before him/her.
  • Guardians often play a key role in many lives as their actions often determine the fate of a group of people, nation, the entire world, and more
  • Some guardians may not be in prophecies, but still play a key factor of what is at stake. (Ex: Characters such as Mega Man X or Dante. Though they are of not legendary concepts, they are basically the center of the fate of what they stand for.)
