**Please Note: As of 2016 The Guardian Program is on Haitus. No new applications are being accepted.**
We trust our safety and security at Haven events
to the honorable and courageous individuals known as the Guardians of Haven.
They protect us, our temples, havens, households and individuals in various
ways per the Color Guard they serve. Each, as a show of their honor and loyalty,
has vowed to follow the tried and true old tribal ways of Family, Honor, Respect,
Loyalty, and the Warrior way, as laid out in the Haven Guardian's Code of Honor.
The Haven Guardians are NOT a group of militant radicals or fanatics so if that
is what you are looking for please go somewhere else.
No one is or will be forced into any Guardianship position of the Haven Guardians.
The Haven Guardians, Haven of Kindred Spirits, HOKS Council, Nox Noctis Domus,
Haven Vamps and Kin, Trainers, and Teachers take no legal responsibility for any
injuries that may occur in any activities or training of each Guardian, Protectorate,
Teacher, or Trainer partakes in voluntarily.
There are four ranks within the Haven Guardians: Squire,
Apprentice, Knight, and Triad. Those enrolled in the training program are Squires.
After completing the basic training, the Squire chooses a Color Guard and will then
be an Apprentice to that Color Guard. Upon completing Apprenticeship, the individual
is Knighted. Finally, those senior members trained in all aspects of the Guardians
and the individual Color Guards may advance into open positions on the Triad. The Triad
are the three leaders of the Guardians themselves and answer to the High Council of HOKS.

THE ATHELING CODE
Before har, the most high
I vow, and swear to be
An Atheling, enobled not by birth or bloodline,
But noble in word and deed,
Thought and heart.
I shall work the Weal
Of kith and kin, folk and friend
Ever before my own want or need.
My word shall be my bond
And I will pledge and keep troth
So that my name and deeds
Live longer than my flesh.
My blood and my life I will lay down willingly
At the need of my kin and my folk
Yet I will not willingly lead these
Into needless strife or battle,
But rather make amends and
That my folk will prosper,
Ever and ever,
I will give almes; Gifu,
The redes will guide me
The gods abide me
The land bestride me
True heart inside me!
In hearth I keep the elden ways,
Welcome those who fare each day
Seeking out my steading's door
And host them from my own goodsstore.
The weak, the childern
I will shield
To strong and steadfast,
Punish liar, smite the thief.
Give comfort to the ones in grief.
Honor women, source of life,
be they lover, neighbor, wife.
Teach the younglings needful lore
That folk shall stand forever more.
Then, with courage, meet my death
Blessing mine with my last breath.
I thank the gods for every day.
And guide our kin to elden way!
