|Real Name: The Guardian (A.K.A. Healer of Worlds) |
Height: His size can vary but when he first appeared, it was estimated at about 3000 meters (around 10000 ft)
Base of operations: Milky Way Galaxy
Ethical alliance: Neutral
His true origin is unknown to all. All that is known is that he was first seen on Dec 21st 2012 and that no other alien race had ever heard of him prior to that.
The Guardian claims that he was brought to Earth after hearing the plea of the planet. As he communicated with its soul, Gaia, he learned that Man had brought her to a state of total despair. Feeling empathy towards her, he proceeded to heal her and gave her the strength to deal with Humanity's betrayal.
In order to protect her, he appointed Avatar Prime as his representative and together, they formed Gaia force and its affiliates.
Their first task had been to exile the alien races that had been working in concert with Man against Gaia. Faced with their power and backed-up by the Guardian's omnipotence, the alien races had no choice but to comply.
The task done, the Guardian eventually left Earth and has not returned since.
Although the Guardian's existence had been a mystery to all, mentions of his presence seemed to mysteriously appear in many ancient texts throughout the Galaxy. This has brought many, including the Anunnaki, to speculate that the Guardian travelled through time and was rewriting galactic history.
Silverlance's discovery that the Guardian had other children among the stars, the planet Neosa being one such place, is giving credence to this claim. Neosa's protectors, The Children of the Guardian, claim that they were chosen over 250 years ago, but Avatar Prime confirmed that Gaia Force was the first to be formed.
The Guardian's present whereabouts are unknown, but Avatar Prime seems to have no problem getting in touch with him. The Guardian was last seen on the planet Abyss.
As to the Guardian's true purpose, no one is sure. It appears that he may simply be a healer of worlds, as he is also known, though no one really knows who named him so.
It was recently revealed that dozens of races across the galaxy have had members transformed by the Guardian. Aside from Humans, the other races known by name who have had members transformed by the Guardian are the Neosians (Children of the Guardian) and the Malekians (The Guard's Sword).
Omnipotence: The extent of his powers is unknown but from his actions we can infer that he, at the least, possesses all the powers that the members of Gaia Force and its affiliates have, since he was the one who bestowed them.
The Anunnaki also alluded to the fact that to fight him would be akin to extinguishing all the stars of the galaxy. Whether this was a literal statement or a figurative one is unclear.
Omniscience: He possesses immense knowledge transcending multiple dimensions.
Healing: He has the power to heal dying worlds.
Resuscitation: He has brought people back to life, Night Storm being one such person.
Omnilinguilism: Like all members of Gaia Force, he can communicate with any intelligent life form as well as communicate with the souls of worlds.
Power endowment: He has endowed the members of Gaia Force with incredible powers by infusing them with an unknown type of energy, commonly referred as "guardian energy".
Teleportation: He has transported people over vast distances.
Telepathy: He can communicate his thoughts to billions of people.
Terraforming: He has manipulated the gases of an inert system and collapsed them into forming a star system with a planet.
Time travel: We know that he has travelled to Neosa's past and Avatar Prime confirmed that he has seen the future and the past.
Portal creation: His body can act as a portal to other parts of the galaxy.
Star travel: Can travel the galaxy, if not beyond.
Replication: He has also been seen creating replicas of himself. Whether these are creations or other aspects of him, no one knows. If the latter, it could indicate that he may be able to exist in more than one place at the time, giving him omnipresence.
Weaknesses: Presumably none.
Appearance: The guardian appears to be composed of space matter and seems to have no tangible form.
