Lore

Dauntless Vanguard Crest icon.png

Each member of the Vanguard is one of the most well-trained soldiers in the Kingdom; they are all adept with multiple weapons and boast a wide knowledge of battle tactics and warfare. Each is a legend in their village or shire, but all of them seek to have their names known throughout the realm. As Sword-Captain, Garen Crownguard Garen Crownguard is the current leader of the Dauntless Vanguard as his aunt Tianna once was several years earlier and is also tasked at protecting the heir to the throne of Demacia, Prince Jarvan IV Lightshield Prince Jarvan IV Lightshield. Unlike the Noxian Legions, the Vanguard do not need drums, nor music to keep time in their advance. They need only the steady, even beat of hooves against soil.

The Dauntless Vanguard and Illuminator Crest icon.png Illuminators also fight against the undead forces of the Shadow Isles Crest icon.png Shadow Isles. Many Vanguard members have lost their lives defending against the Harrowing.
