Guardians are any magical beings with the primary drive to protect or guard. Unfortunately, they’re all a little crazy.
An example are selkies, which once rescued endangered children, and now “rescue” them by eating them to stop their suffering.
Their parallel world they occupy officially does not exist. If it did (and it does), its name is Meginnah.
Guardians are driven by protective instinct. They will plant themselves in front of a thing to guard, or go flying into the worst possible situation to protect someone who needs it. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to convince a Guardian to abandon the thing or person being guarded. One can still find Sphinxes nearly as old as the desert itself guarding long-forgotten tombs, and unless a meteor lands right on their heads, they likely will be there until the end of the world.
Current Status: Endangered
