Bloodveld guardians are a much stronger variety of the normal bloodveld. They have a combat level of 140, and eight of them are summoned by Vanstrom Klause after the holy water thrown by the player struck a fatal blow on him during The Branches of Darkmeyer. Fortunately, Vanescula Drakan comes to the player's rescue. The player must then control her and kill all eight of them. Vanescula still has little trouble defeating them as she is a vyre and could only be damaged by blisterwood weapons or the Ivandis flail, which the bloodveld guardians clearly lack.
Bloodveld guardians, along with other bloodveld in Darkmeyer (bloodveld leechers, younglings and Harold), looks very different in normal bloodveld found elsewhere. Their bodies are purple rather than light brown, and have bat-like wings.
