There are eight Guardians, even though there are only four Watchtowers. Canonically, there are seven Guardians, the eighth has recently been revealed via a gnosis and not many recognize the Guardian, and as being 'new,' this Guardian lacks a sigil. Each Guardian is said to be the patron of various Otherkin species and are akin to the saints of the Catholic Church.The Guardians can be invoked through an ancient ritual that causes those invoking them to see the Guardians in some form or another.CreditRendering The VeilAmaroq is taken from the Unknown, a spiritual entity invoked in a ritual to turn one into a werewolf. The name is taken from an Inuit wolf-god.While traditionally, the Watchtowers are Eastern Air, Southern Fire, Western Water, and Northern Earth, Above Light, Below Shadows, Spirit Within, Body/Blood Without, the Watchtowers are according to the Rendering The Veil website. The four classical elemental Watchtowers are shifted around.

Wears a long, flowing robe that is an almost luminous white shot through with gold and silver thread. Wears a collar or torque of gold. Carries a lyre, lute, or flute. Dreamy, flowing movements — exceptionally graceful.
Hss’tah Feliss (huss-TAH feh-LEESS)Title: Huntress-PriestessGender: Dark/destructive feminineElement: DarknessDirection: BelowColor(s): Gray, black, indigoSymbol: Small curved bladeMetal: SilverPlanet: MoonRaces: Felines, Vampires, Revenants, Ghouls, Jiang Shi, and SuccubiEssence: (Dark) magick, night, shadows, mystery — that which is hidden or obscured from view.Description: A petite, wiry felinoid whose short, soft fur is the color of deep shadow rippled with true black. Wears bracers of soft leather inscribed with designs. Minimal clothing, also of leather in deep brown or black. Carries at least one small, curve-bladed knife. Sometimes appears covered head to foot in a soft black cloak. Moves gracefully, but in an almost threatening way — like she is constantly stalking something and just about ready to pounce. Has a dark sexual allure and this is visible in the way she moves as well.
Gwidorian (gweh-DOHR-ree-ahn)Title: Lord of the WildingGender: Positive/generative masculineElement: EarthDirection: SouthColor(s): Brown, green, earth tonesSymbol: Living Staff (wooden staff entwined with ivy)Metal: IronPlanet: EarthRaces: Therians, Satyrs, Centuars, Pixies, and Earth ElementalsEssence: Vitality, sex, nature, all primal thingsDescription: Variously a centaur, a stag-man, and a man-wolf. Ithyphallic (i.e., he’s hung and he’s happy). Has a distinct Dionysian aspect, and I keep seeing him with a wreath of grapevines (complete with dangling bunches of grapes) in his hair. If he’s wearing clothing, he wears a long, flowing cloak the reddish-brown color of both dried blood and rich earth. Beneath that, he wears a tunic of deep green (usually with his privates exposed).
Sephiriel (she-FEER-ree-el)Title: Storm-SingerGender: Masculine androgyneElement: Wind (air)Direction: NorthColor(s): Light blue, gray, silverSymbol: Writing quill or swordMetal: QuicksilverPlanet: Jupiter, MercuryRaces: Celestials, Lightworkers, and Air ElementalsEssence: Thought, Will, judgment, the Word.Description: Tall, thin, and sharp-faced with shoulder-length pale (gray?) hair. Wears either a loose-fitting tunic of grayish-white material or the tunic with a breastplate of some non-lustrous gray metal that is neither silver nor steel. Also wears bracers, greaves, and a thin circlet of the same strange metal. A little haughty and detached. Economical but swift movements.
Neride Eyooli (neh-REED ee-YOOL-ee)Title: Lady of WatersGender: Positive/generative feminineElement: WaterDirection: EastColor(s): Blue, green, purpleSymbol: Scrying bowl or sphereMetal: CopperPlanet: Venus, NeptuneRaces: Mermaids, Sirens, and Water ElementalsEssence: Healing, emotion, vision, flowDescription: Long flowing hair with beads and shells tied to the strands. Kohled eyes. Wears nets or veils of many colors. Lots of jewelry. Moves fluidly, sensuously. She is also a dancer.
Illana (ehl-LAHN-nah)Title: We of the DreamingGender: PluralElement: Dream/magick/glamourDirection: WithinColor(s): All and none, purple hues, lavenderSymbol: Sphere of crystal or a mirrorMetal: Glass/crystalPlanet: PlutoRaces: The Many-Souled, Witches, and WarlocksEssence: Glamoury, magick, AwakeningDescription: Veiled in iridescent, translucent colorless material that looks like it’s been spun from rainbows and spider webs. Almost completely covered head to toe. All you can clearly see are her hands. Everything else keeps shifting — and even this form is a compromise, for otherwise they keep cycling through a multiplicity of forms and faces almost too rapidly to see. The most uncanny and “other” of all the Guardians.
Amaroq (ah-MAH-rock)Title: UnknownGender: PluralElement: Blood/Flesh/BoneDirection: WithoutColor(s): Tan, pink, maroonSymbol: Collar or belt of hideMetal: BonePlanet: Uranus, SaturnRaces: Lycans, Berserkers, Skin Walkers, Wendigos, and ShapeshifersEssence: Diablerie, hunger, primal rage, debauchery, and carnal thingsDescription: The tall, cylindrical, luminous pillar-like phantom of the Unknown, seven or eight feet in height. It sometimes develops further, and assumes the form of a tall, thin monstrosity, half human and half animal, grey and nude, with very long legs and arms, and the feet and claws of a wolf, but surrounded with the hair of a women, that falls about its bare shoulders in yellow ringlets. It has wolf’s ears and a wolf’s mouth. Its aquiline nose and pale eyes are fashioned like those of a human being, but animated with an expression too diabolically malignant to proceed from anything but the super-physical. Sometimes seen as a monstrous hooded figure with a death’s cloak. May appear as a large wolf.
