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.
He is called Gardianul Orb, which means Blind Guardian, because he's actually blind as a result after a black dragon attacked him when he was protecting some hatchlings in the cave. He may not see, but his sense is strong and can feel danger if he is about to be attacked. Gardianul Orb has enormous patience with the young ones, and teaches them to protect themselves.
