Area Guardians (領域守護者) are a group of NPCs, who guard a specifically assigned area in the Great Tomb of Nazarick. They control the surrounding territory of a Floor Guardian.


Like the Floor Guardians who manage the defense of the whole floor, Area Guardians guard a certain area appointed to them. These types of guardians were responsible for being in charge of an individual area within a given floor as their domain specifically. As they are large in number and most of them are not very strong, the word "Guardian" usually refers to the Floor Guardians only.
