Awares, also know by their ancient title as Guardian, are transformed elves who were gravely injured and rewarded with a second chance at life for their exemplary service. Their importance in Dokkalfar society has greatly diminished with the advent of Drow, save for Mimaneid & the few Chelian clans who still revere them and their service. Modern techniques, such as Val'Jaal'darya science, have attempted to replicate this lost, ancient practice. Guardians come in all shapes and sizes, but the most commonly known in Chel'el'Sussoloth are Driders of the Val'Beldrobbaen clan and Nagas of the Val'Sullisin'rune clan.
Notable subjects are Zhor and the Mimian dragon sage Vidopnir.
