The War of Mourn
Guardians are the healers, enchanters and soothers of a squad, they anchor their brothers and sisters to this world. They are adept with most colleges of magic however they focus on the protection of the squad.
Guardians unlike other Crusaders are not taken from birth into the Crusader order. They can be but not always. A Guardian-in-training will start its’ life in the Circle of Magi, and once trained in the ways of magic will come to the Order of Crusaders and finish his training there. Because of this, Guardians are some of the most powerful wizards of their race. The training done at the Order is mostly spiritual however Guardians do receive basic combat training. Guardians are some of the best young wizards that the Circle of Magi has to offer.
Guardians that retire are most likely out of all Crusaders to leave the order and come under service under the many lords and ladies on Khorvaire. Those that do stay are revered as teachers and wise-men by those that look favorably on the Order.
