The Lion Guard keeps order in the city of Ostia Anguis and its outlying settlements. The Lion Guard were also the first settlers of what became Ostia Anguis, as it was initially founded as an outpost against piracy. The city of Ostia Anguis has grown greatly over the last several decades, due in large part to the protection of the Lion Guard.
When not rooting out pirate havens and other fel beings of the sea, the Lion Guard spends much of its time taming the wilderness around its outpost so that settlers could make use of the fertile land between the Nentir River and the coast. In this way, the sparsely populated goblin tribes were sent fleeing into east, with only a few significant battles at the foothills of the Wyrmsmoke Mountains, the dragons that sank trade vessels and devoured their crew were slain or driven off, and moments of peace have come to the vale.
The principals of the Lion Guard are the principles of the Southern Legion:
✦ Fortitvdine – Strength
✦ Confortare – Courage
✦ Pacem – Peace
