When a friendly character is in this character’s area defends, this character can parry instead of that character’s Guard action, adding the symbols shown on the dice to the character’s defense power..


A character with this skill can only parry (i.e. use an equipment card to defend against that attack, like a shield); they cannot dodge (see page 11) to defend a friendly character. The attacked character cannot perform a Guard action, but they can still use their Armor in addition to their bodyguard’s defense power. Any damage is dealt to the character who was initially attacked, not the character using Bodyguard.
