The three Dog Guardians are monsters encountered in the twelfth Dark Parables game, The Thief and the Tinderbox. They are the guardians of the underground lair where the Tinderbox is interred.

The Dog Guardians are based on the Dog Guardians in Hans Christian Andersen's The Tinderbox. Their appearance seems to be based on that of Anubis, the Egyptian God of Burial.

Appearance Edit

The three Dog Guardians all look like dogs clad in yellow and blue armor, yet they stand on their hind legs like humans. Each of them have glowing eyes, and long claws.

Each one has their own essence; General Daniel Sol's essence is purple, General Ardan Bass' essence is orange-red, and General Chris Dahlia's essence is light blue.

In their human forms, they all don armor with a red cloak behind them. Each of their cloaks has a symbol on them.

Origins Edit

The three Dog Guardians were once three highly regarded human soldiers in King Edric's army. It is unknown whether they died of natural causes, murdered or voluntarily sacrificed themselves for the position. Regardless, they were interred on Edric's orders in an underground lair, where they were magically reborn as the legendary three Dog Guardians.
