Royal guard formians are the elite members of formian society. They have individual goals, desires and failings. They are about 7 feet long and 6 feet tall. Royal guards carry magical javelins that they can hurl with their modified claws. Like the warriors, they often capture prey alive to take them before the queen. Royal guards wear helmets made of bronze to signify their status to outsiders who enter the hive.
