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.

Due to the increased responsibilities of the Floor Guardians, there were plans to shift some of their responsibilities to the Area Guardians to maintain the internal defense of Nazarick.
Ainz remembers a situation where he had once discussed with the Area Guardians about not needing to have them welcome him back all the time. Each time he tries bringing it up, the Area Guardians' responses would exactly be the same as the one Albedo was giving him right now, always insisted, stating which it was natural for a servant like them to welcome their master’s return.
Once the Sorcerer Kingdom began to subjugate a vast enough territory, Ainz considered the idea of having the Area Guardians to take up responsibility for a wide range of tasks in the future. He felt that perhaps a day will come when even the management of warfare will have to be delegated to someone as them.
To carry out the final operation against the Re-Estize Kingdom, Ainz noted how the Area Guardians had been informed, in writing, the actions of Floor Guardians and the goals behind them beforehand. According to Ainz, if they had any suggestions to report, they should be reporting it to their superiors, the Floor Guardians. This was done so in order to unify the various denizens of Nazarick, to gain the opinions of those with different points of view and to pique the interest and curiosity of them all. Unfortunately, neither Pestonya nor Nigredo are apparently following the procedures Ainz happen to have a brief description of.
