"Guardian" is a Dark Hunter who was tasked with keeping the Dark Hunters' secrets safe.
Early Life and Career
Guardian was once part of a tribe on an island that was engulfed in war. After his tribe was betrayed by one of their own and he was left for dead, the Dark Hunters found him and restored him to health. He worked for the Dark Hunters to make sure none of them betrayed the organization like his tribe member did. If a Dark Hunter was captured, it was Guardian's job to kill them before they revealed any secrets.
After Makuta Teridax took over the universe, Guardian met up with Toa Nuva Tahu and a group he had formed for a rebellion. While hiding out in the ruins of Karzahni, Guardian walked away from the campfire for a moment to think. Suddenly, the ground (controlled by Teridax) opened beneath him, and the stone itself reached up, grabbed him, and pulled him under, killing him.[RoS, Ch. 1]
As with the rest of the deceased inhabitants of the Matoran Universe, Guardian was transported to the Red Star to be revived. However, the return function malfunctioned, trapping Guardian in the Red Star.
Guardian was a member of a resistance group in the Toa Empire Alternate Universe that attempted to eliminate Toa Tuyet. In the battle against the empire, Guardian helped Nuju keep a Toa of Magnetism at bay, but was later defeated, although not before bringing a large number of Toa down with him.[DM, Ch. 8]
Abilities and Traits
Guardian is a cynical individual, who is used to making difficult decisions. During Teridax's reign, he lacked the Toa's hope of ousting Teridax from his position as Great Spirit, and wondered if the resistance should instead turn their efforts to escaping the universe.[RoS, Ch. 1]
After being found by the Dark Hunters, Guardian had his right arm rebuilt, allowing him to use a Rhotuka launching staff. Guardian's Rhotuka gives him control over Stone and Earth. In close combat, Guardian uses his deadly claws.[DH, p. 31]
"Guardian is the keeper of secrets. He stays on the periphery of any major conflict between the Dark Hunters and major foes like the Toa or the Brotherhood of Makuta. His task is a simple one: If a Dark Hunter is captured, it is his job to silence them before any secrets can be divulged to our enemies."

"He had nothing against Tahu, but there had to be a better way. Maybe instead of running from place to place, they should be trying to find a way out of this universe. Could be this place was lost, and it was time to accept it and move on. It wasn't an easy choice, but those weren’t the kind he was used to making anyway."
