The Twelve Guardians are ageless sentient animals with vast magical power. Each guardian has a natural animal form but also possesses the ability to shape-shift into a mortal form (Human, Jakkai, Fairy, Khamega, etc) as a disguise to walk amongst mortals without attracting attention; however, in both their natural and disguise forms, the symbol of their magical element is displayed visibly somewhere on their body.
There are three guardians for each of the four main magical elements which accounts for the twelve total.
|Water||Toski the Rabbit||Broxis the Wolf||Milothys the Dolphin|
|Fire||Siara the Lynx||Rynn the Flame Dragon||Melli the Fire Bee|
|Wind||Fuzen'ro the Bat||Meeros the Mortori Bird||Aquilos the Falcon|
|Earth||Jaspin the Mole||Moku the Snake||Vidane the Stag|
Most Guardians remained neutral during the Great War between Heaven and Hell, even when it was being fought on Medius, as they are all the creations of both Gaia and Syndel. However, Siara the Lynx and Melli the Bee sided with Heaven whilst Broxis the Wolf and Toski the Rabbit sided with Hell.
Powers and Abilities
All Guardians possess vast magical power in their particular element of influence. For example, Siara the Lynx is a fire-elemental Guardian so has powerful fire magic. They can apparently grant special spells to mortals who are skilled in the guardian's element. Heathcliff "Cliff" Sinclair (a fire mage) received a powerful fire spell from Siara that he dubs "the Siara Special". This spell is devastatingly effective compared to more mundane spells, though he requires help from his fairy companion in order to gather enough power to cast it.
Natural Form and Shape-Shifting
Each Guardian possesses two forms with the ability to switch between them at will. The Guardian's natural form is an animal as indicated by their name, however, their appearance clearly distinguishes them from ordinary animals; they are usually significantly bigger than normal members of the species. Their animal form also clearly displays the symbol of their magical element somewhere on their body. Another notable feature is that while in their true form they will emit an aura that indicates their immense magic power. The aura they emit will also be in the color of their element: for instance, Melli the Fire Bee’s was red, and Meeros’s, being Wind, is green.
If the Guardian so chooses to move amongst mortals without wanting to attract attention, they can switch to their disguise form as one of the mortal races. Each Guardian has (apparently) only one disguise form, they may disguise themselves as Humans, Jakkai, or even Fairies and Khamega; this form generally appears "normal" to mortals although traits of their animal form carry through (same eye color, hair is the same color as their fur, etc). Most notably, the magical element symbol can carry over into their disguise form; Toski the Rabbit bears a blue tattoo on her right arm of the water element symbol whilst in her human form disguise.
Finally, each Guardian possesses the ability to bestow a curse upon mortals if they feel like it; they can do so as a punishment or just due to annoyance or amusement. These curses cause the affected person to transform into the same animal as the Guardian that gave them the curse (Meeros' curse turns you into a Mortori Bird, Toski's turns you into a Snow Bunny, etc). The curse is seemingly permanent unless the Guardian decides to remove it and usually the victim has no control over the effect, unable to return to their original form at all whilst it's in effect. Only the respective Guardian can remove their own curse and not curses by other Guardians.
Kieri Suizahn was cursed by Toski to turn into a Snow Bunny, however, whilst she shifts into the form involuntarily after sneezing, she can also shift in and out of it at will which is seemingly not supposed to happen. This is because Angels and Demons have higher magic resistances than the average Median so it's likely that the curse was incomplete.
Toski the Rabbit
|Toski the Rabbit|
|Animal Form||Snow Rabbit|
|First Mentioned||Slightly Damned #117 [HQ, TS]|
|First Appeared||Slightly Damned #149 [HQ, TS]|
Toski was the first Guardian to feature prominently. She robbed a shopkeeper in Farun whilst in her human form disguise because she "loves messing with these guys". Kieri Suizahn witnessed Toski running from the shopkeeper and decided to try and stop her, without realizing that it was actually Toski. Kieri didn't have her sword with her at the time but revealed her Angel Wings in preparation to try and fight anyway. Toski noticed this and reacted poorly to Kieri's presence, she bestowed Kieri's Snow Bunny curse on her before running off.
Siara the Lynx
|Siara the Lynx|
|First Mentioned||Slightly Damned #366 [HQ, TS]|
|First Appeared||Slightly Damned #370 [HQ, TS]|
Siara granted Heathcliff "Cliff" Sinclair his "Siara Special" spell which is an abnormally powerful fire magic spell. It's been hinted that Cliff is, or used to be, friends with her. There is also a hint that Siara is Cliff's grandmother as said by Duster in this comic .
Meeros the Mortori Bird
|Meeros the Mortori Bird|
|Animal Form||Mortori Bird|
|First Mentioned||Slightly Damned #385 [HQ, TS]|
|First Appeared||Slightly Damned #570 [HQ, TS]|
Meeros is hinted at being a prankster and somewhat of an attention-seeker. He temporarily cursed Cliff Sinclair to turn him into a Mortori Bird for a short time as a joke. Meeros is noted to have a particular liking for St. Curtis' Spring Flower Festival and enjoys flying to the city through the Southern Pass over the travellers, impressing them with a magic light-show as he goes.
Meeros has been implied to have a particular reaction to certain types of couples (Slightly Damned #450 [HQ, TS]); Meeros may have cursed Cliff as part of a prank he pulls on couples. Miranda Sinclair expresses that Meeros would probably find Kieri and Buwaro to be interesting for some reason.
Meeros remained neutral during the Great War.
Melli the Fire Bee
|Melli the Fire Bee|
|Animal Form||Fire Bee|
|First Mentioned||Slightly Damned #386 [HQ, TS]|
|First Appeared||Slightly Damned #604 [TS]|
Melli makes her home in St. Curtis which is famous for its honey. During the festival she runs an Archery stand at the Midway for anyone to test their marksmanship. Melli is noted for "hating Demons about as much as Toski hates angels".
Melli was recently killed by a Jakkai named Moonshade, who had apparently stole the powers of Moku and used it to defeat her.
Fuzen'ro the Bat
|Fuzen'ro the Bat|
|First Mentioned||Slightly Damned #86 [HQ, TS]|
Fuzen'ro remained neutral during the Great War.
Broxis the Wolf
|Broxis the Wolf|
|Animal Form||White Wolf|
Recently it's been revealed that, at some point between their separation and rejoining, he cursed Kieri's twin brother Kazai.
Moku the Snake
|Moku the Snake|
|First Mentioned||Slightly Damned #102 [HQ, TS]|
Moku remained neutral during the Great War.
Jaspin the Mole
|Jaspin the Mole|
Jaspin remained neutral during the Great War.
Vidane the Stag
|Vidane the Stag|
Vidane remained neutral during the Great War.
Rynn the Flame Dragon
|Rynn the Flame Dragon|
|Animal Form||Flame Dragon|
Rynn remained neutral during the Great War.
Aquilos the Falcon
|Aquilos the Falcon|
Aquilos remained neutral during the Great War.
Milothys the Dolphin
|Milothys the Dolphin|
|First Mentioned||Slightly Damned #577 [TS]|
According to Meeros, Milothys is said to live on the southern coast of Fragaria at Port Dorade. Milothys remained neutral during the Great War; however, he seems to love Angels because of what happened during the war. 
Based on what was uttered by Moonshade during his confrontation with Melli, it is possible for the Guardians to have descendants; which could mean that at one point, some of them would have had offspring with either one of each other (which could explain Mokurynn, for him/her to have a name after two Guardians) or even a regular Median (which could explain Moonshade's similar snake-like appearance to Moku). It's unclear what this would mean for the descendant, it's possible that they may possess similar powers to that of the Guardian they came from or they would have to awaken that gift in some shape or form. It could mean that if a Guardian were to die, one of his/her descendants could gain power equal or comparable to a Guardian.
