Guardian Dragons have large shields on the end of their tails. Although the shields appear to be heavy, they are light, yet nearly unbreakable. Guardian Dragons use their tail-shields, as well as their wings, to deflect attacks and protect others. Often, they will guard the eggs and hatchlings of a nest while others are away. They are generally peaceful, and will not retaliate unless necessary. They have no need to forage or hunt, as they are fed by those they protect.
Ever vigilant, Sir Tarak spends his days perched upon the nearby cliff side guarding his loved ones. Though he brushes off the hatchlings when they attempt to play with him, he can't help but let out a small smile whenever he sees them playing carefree and happy. He guards them readily so that they may never have to guard themselves, a role he cherishes.
