Shadows in the Void
Guardian is a small fertile planet named after the gigantic cliff carving of what many claim to be a guardian angel. When colonists were first settling on the planet, over 200 years ago, many odd things began to happen. The kept going of for months until in one night three children went missing. The colonists immediately sent out search parties and one of them came across the giant winged figure kneeling with their sword carved into the face of a large cliff. Before the party could figure out what to make of it they were attacked by strange creatures from the jungle. Fleeing from the onslaught they were driven towards the carving and once they stepped into the shadow of the carving their pursuers stopped and bowed down before the colonists. Legend has it that it was then that the party noticed that the shadow of the carving seemed to be pointing towards a small cave with a fire inside of it. It was there that they found the missing children, seemingly unaware of how they arrived there.
Despite significant skepticism as to the truth of this tale, the name stuck and the planet is now known as Guardian.
