Caligni vanguards, also called dark champions by other species, are a rare caligni subrace that are born without eyes, and are groomed for a life of rigorous martial training from a young age. They are appreciated, but warily respected, by other caligni, due to their inscrutable motives. Vanguards almost never rebel against the community; some claim that those who do are taken by the owbs.[1][2]


In order to offset their lack of eyes, caligni vanguards have keen hearing and are particularly sensitive to sonic vibrations. Their black plate armour is partially bolted to their body; even those pieces that are not bolted on are rarely taken off. This serves as a reminder of their duty, and they eventually grow accustomed to the pain.[1]
