The Guardians are a race that reside mainly in either Terreille or Kaeleer. These are the Caretakers of the Blood and they have a half-life of sorts. They straddle the line between life and death, retaining their appearance from when they were fully alive. Since they are not quite alive, but not quite dead, they may need to drink blood in order to retain their strength. They help the newly dead with their transitions and have extended lives.
