How can a Charr be a Guardian, for some reason I’m having a very hard time imagining a Charr as a Guardian character mainly because of the skills sets given to the profession. In that they all in someway relate to belief and faith, not just believe in one’s self but in the believe that there is something greater powering the world.
Spirit Weapons—The guardian can summon spirit weapons to fight at his side for a limited time. Spirit weapons cannot be attacked by enemies and can be commanded to inflict a powerful attack before disappearing. For example, Hammer of Wisdom can be summoned to fight alongside a guardian, then commanded to knock down an enemy and vanish.
Symbols—The guardian places symbols on the ground, where they inflict damage to enemies or deliver a benefit to allies. Symbols persist for a few seconds and then go away. For instance, Symbol of Faith is a hammer attack that leaves a transient symbol on the ground, giving allies the Vigor boon.
Wards—A ward is a marked area on the ground that stops enemies from passing through while allowing allies to move freely. For example, a staff-wielding guardian can create a Line of Warding in front of him that keeps enemies from reaching the allies behind him.
Aegis—Guardians are adept in the use of Aegis, a removable boon that blocks the next attack. Guardians have access to this boon through the virtue of Courage.
Spirit Weapons goes without saying but for instance:
Aegis: from Greek, is a large collar or cape worn in ancient times to display the protection provided by a high religious authority or the holder of a protective shield signifying the same, such as a bag-like garment that contained a shield. Sometimes the garment and the shield are merged, with a small version of the shield appearing on the garment. It originally was derived from the protective shield associated with a religious figure when related in myths and images. The wearing of the aegis and its contents show sponsorship, protection, or authority derived from yet a higher source or deity. The name has been extended to many other entities, and the concept of a protective shield is found in other mythologies, while its form varies across sources.
The concept of doing something "under someone's aegis" means doing something under the protection of a powerful, knowledgeable, or benevolent source. The word aegis is identified with protection by a strong force with its roots in Greek mythology and adopted by the Romans; there are parallels in Norse mythology and in Egyptian mythology as well. But over all it all means the samething; Reciving or acting under the edit of a higher power.
And so with the rest of the terms used to describe a Guardian’s power in that they all translate to mean belief in a higher power and or channeling that power.
At this point the idea of a Charr guardian seems a little contradictory to me, how can a being from a race and culture that distains faith and belief suddenly become the wielder of those powers. Let me make this clear, the Charr DO NOT question the existence of gods or higher powers they simply believe that they do not need them and belief in such entities is perhaps one of the greatest weakness of the other races. That makes the possibility of a Charr guardian seem even less likely to me, short of being an outcast I don‘t see how it is possible.
This all leads to one of my biggest complains with GW lore; by stripping the Charr of the ability to believe in a higher power they have severely pigeonholed the race and the culture.
