Powers and AbilitiesEdit
According to legend, the Loric finally began to live in harmony with the planet when they realised that their thirst for rapid development was causing damage and pollution. At this time the Elders found the Phoenix Stones, a gift from the entity that they didn't know was at the heart of the planet. The planet became abundant in resources, the Garde where given their powers and the Chimæra came out from hiding.
All Garde share physical enhancements such as strength, speed and senses. They also have the common Legacy of Telekinesis. Regular Garde will develop seven Legacies that vary, the final Legacy is known as a master Legacy.
The Elders of Lorien, and those that will grow into their roles, are said to have all the Legacies between them. With Pittacus Lore, the leader of the Elders, possessing all of them.
- See: Legacies for more information on individual Legacies.
Early Life, Training and DevelopmentEdit
Garde children are raised by their grandparents in order to allow their parents to further develop their Legacies. They are also assigned a Cêpan. At the age of eleven, they are taken to training academies where they work with their Cêpan to learn about their planet and develop their legacies.
The Garde with the greatest potential attend an academy program at the Lorien Defence Academy itself.
Jobs and ResponsibilitiesEdit
The Garde's abilities are primarily developed with the intention of defending the planet in the eventuality of an attack/invasion which was prophesied by the Elders. The Soldiers of the Lorien Defense Force are members of the Garde.
The majority of public figures on Lorien were also Garde, this includes athletes and performers.
Last of the Loric GardeEdit
When the Mogadorians attacked Lorien, an evacuation protocol was put into action. This involved collecting the chosen Garde, who were recognised as the next generation of Elders, and sending them to Earth with their Cêpan to hide. A charm was placed on them so that they could only be killed in order of their assigned number.
Meanwhile, a young Garde named Ella was born to Raylan and Erina. Raylan owned a restored fuel powered ship; he sent his employee, Crayton, with Ella and his beloved Chimæra to the ship where they managed to escape the invasion and travel to Earth.
