Your right, the Guard trait is just as fine as it is right now. In the
game I play, the BG are usually used to protect the all mighty deckers.
Since those deckers usually don't go on SR, the BG must stay frosty.
This is a big draw back since Knuckles and Scorpio have both interesting
skills and they sure can take their own on Challenges.
