Further details have been unveiled regarding Revelation Online’s most powerful demon slaying group in Nuanor, the Guardians.
Firstly, the great Ancestral Dragon is introduced, whose demon-slaying feats brought peace to the land of Nuanor. The Ancestral Dragon is the forefather of the Demonslayers, and the one that is at the core of all of the Guardians Faith. The Demonslayers represent the scales that armor the God of the Guardians, the mighty Ancestral Dragon that defeated the demons.
There are Four Corps that are commanded by the Guardians: the Forest, Wind, Mountain and Fire corps. Responsibilities are given to each of these corps, and they do their duty all over Nuanor.
The Wind Corps is responsible for collecting information and intelligence in Nuanor. The Forest Corps studies the mythical power sources in Fort Whetstone. They are focused on researching Arrays and Demonslaying runes. The Mountain Corps are the powerful, military arm of the Guardians, and they are the ones who carry out the core duties of demon slaying. Finally, the Fire Corps are the ones with the most important duty, they recruit and train new members to become demon slaying warriors. Each corp has the same values. They are faithful to the Ancestral Dragon. They value every life, doesn’t matter if it’s yours or theirs, every life is sacred. They would only throw away a life if it means that more lives can be saved. Finally, their main responsibility is to kill demons without mercy.
The Guardians have a strict structure and hierarchy. The one who commands the Four Dragons and their respective Corps is the Great Wyrm. It’s said that there are two Grand Wyrms, Yin and Thunder, but Yin has never been seen in person, while Thunder is the Guardians divine leader, Makato, Akuta’s Idol. The Four Dragons are the leaders of their respective Wind, Forest, Fire, and Mountain corps.
Other ranks include the Drakes, some of the most powerful and experienced officers within the Guardians. There can only be 36 Drakes, and each year old warriors are replaced by younger, more powerful ones. New recruits are called Serpents. There are two rankings of the Serpents, the Hidden Serpents, youths adopted by the Guardian who became orphans in the war against the demons, and Ascending Serpents, other demon slayers who proved their skills and want to join the fight against the demons.
The Guardians definitely seem like an interesting bunch, and we look forward to seeing them more once Revelation Online launches!
