The Dauntless Vanguard Crest icon Dauntless Vanguard is an elite order of warriors, assigned to handle Demacia's most dangerous foes and confront threats beyond its borders. The most prestigious battalion of Demacia, at full strength, it numbers over the two thousand soldiers. Currently it is led by Garen OriginalSquare Garen, nephew of the High Marshal Tianna OriginalSquare Tianna Crownguard.

"Our rivals know that to strike at any of us is to strike at all of us."

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 OriginalSquare 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, Jarvan IV OriginalSquare 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 Illuminators also fight against the undead forces of the Shadow Isles Crest icon Shadow Isles. Many Vanguard members have lost their lives defending against the Harrowing.
