He is 25 years old, and often appears as a man wearing a long coat with a hood draped over his head alongside custom headgear underneath seemingly both protective and concealing underneath, a gray 'tactical' shirt and pants underneath, sterile gloves on his hands, finished off with boots on his feet.
Marvel of modern medicine and biomechanical science, the Class-21 Field Surgical Kit is designed to support medical personnel in hazardous environments, for treatment of extreme trauma and physical ailments, with guaranteed survivability and sterility if used properly.
May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.
You gain the following benefits as long as you are wearing this Artifact.
All Stabilizations you attempt are considered Proper Stabilizations.
You also gain the following effects:
Leonard surges forward, as his back jerks upwards. In a flurry of mana particles and bloody red, crystalline shards begin to tear themselves free. Soon after, following the emergence of its extensions, the Guardian raises its primary body, in a gruesome display of warping its physical form outside of its host. Almost as if his spine were the entity itself, the Guardian would fully tear itself out his back, arching out its enormous crystalline 'limbs', as it stretches out several meters, taking careful guard behind its host.
The guardian is a mana symbiote long forgotten by history, almost all knowledge having been lost to the careful work of the Sabisians. The rare few scholars that still hold existing records of these beings believe them to long be extinct, lost to mana wars passed long since and the Sabisian incursion.
While in its docile state, the Guardian appears as a crystalline growth connected directly to its hosts nervous system through the spinal cord, easily being visible to the naked eye underneath the skin, alongside visible patches of mana-crystalline material left in patches above the skin containing it. While in its docile form, the guardian remains in a sort of dormant state, co-existing with its host and feeding off of its body.
During its active phase, the Guardian appears to burst out of body of its host. Despite this appearance, this process is all but a trick of the eyes, in reality being no more than an energy transference as the Guardian takes form, leaving behind no actual wounds on the host's body. The crystalline being seen during its active phase is not in reality the entity's true form, that being the crystaline growth located inside the host. Henceforth, destroying the active entity does little but return it back into its primary shell, where it can recover.
In appearance, during the active phase, the Guardian is a large, several meters tall crystalline biomechanical creature. It is composed of a long lanky crystalline 'spine' flanked by long sharpened shards that it uses to strike at the enemy or otherwise carry out its commands. When out of range, it uses a head-like appendage, which it can seemingly use to see, to fire a directed burst of energy.
The Guardian forms a bond with its host during the symbiotic period, carrying out their commands on its own free will, in exchange, the host provides it safety and nutrition.
Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate.
Summon a single Guardian at your location. They will last until they are destroyed. They are controlled by the GM but will follow any commands you give. You may have at most 1 minion active at a time.
Minions have 6 Body and can make ranged attacks at targets up to 30 feet away with 5 dice to attack and +1 Damage. Your minions can move 20 feet per Round as Free Movement, and double that when performing an all-out Sprint. They cannot dodge or Defend. They have dog-level intelligence, and cannot communicate back to you. Any Perception checks they make are rolled with 8 dice.
Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation or for its duration will almost certainly be disturbed to see The guardian 'tears' itself out of the hosts back.
Possession of this Artifact causes the following Battle Scar to manifest over the course of a day: Crystalline-mineral growth around the spine. If you lose possession of this Artifact, the Battle Scar heals over the course of the next month.

_Being born rich and with some smarts to pack along the way must be nice, huh Leonard?_
_I still remember the first time I left Akvar. The light spring breeze, the soft sunlight shining upon my skin, the ever so light tip-tapping of light rain in the background. It was the first time I ever felt free. Free from the constant expectations, pressure, societal standards and regulations I need to adhere to. Free of the ever present political bickering and plotting. How happy I felt back then - when I was simply able to lie down and bask in the sun. That is the kind of life I long for - a free life, one without regret. One where I am simply able to be as I am, a life where I can be happy. So many times I have been asked why I decided to become a doctor, when instead I could be aspiring to be a top of the line lawyer, a wealthy merchant or an official in the court of the emperor himself. Truthfully, I don't have much of an answer, I can't say I've never thought about it. Sure, having money enables one to do many things that one would otherwise not be able to do, and I can't exactly say I didn't enjoy a life of luxury , but it is the same money and luxury that has chained me down for all my life. And I've always had quite a big heart, be it for better or worse, so it just came together as I went on. It's been decided. I want to help people, I want to see the world. Call me naive or overambitious, maybe, but at the same time, what can one truly do without taking a risk and seeing where it takes them?_
_Most of them won't understand, maybe they'll even look down upon me for running away from what was supposed to be my duty, and I'm fully prepeared to take their scorn. Truthfully, I never felt at home in this kind of life. I really wish I could leave on a better note, but what can you do when they simply won't understand? Or maybe they refuse to understand. Either way, it's the same. I think it's time I pave my own future, not one decided for me._
_By the time they find the letter, I'll be halfway out of Akvar. Beyond that? Who knows. Hopefully something better._
