Description: An angel of protection brought to death and back again, the angel of eternal protection is an effective personal guardian. Where it once upheld its god’s will through the defense of another, it now has only one objective: to tirelessly defend the creatures its new master names its ward. Dantus uses them as his own personal guard, and he makes rare gifts of them to allies or to nobles as bribes.
