About This Quiz

Guardians do different things. But they all share one goal, and that is to look out for you. Now, most people think about fairy godmothers when you mention a mythical guardian, but we're referring to the legends of old that people have said have inhabited this earth at one time or another. 

These creatures, because of their sheer power, have had stories written about them, movies and TV shows made about them and video games that feature them. But which one guards you? Which mythical creature has your back when you don't?

Is your guardian the fearsome dragon? Do you sometimes feel like there's a burst of confidence and determination in you that you can't explain? Maybe it's the death omen known as the banshee. Do you often sense when danger is near before it gets to you? Or are you more of a fairy person? 

Do you feel like you should put yourself out there and just go after what you want? Or is your mythical guardian the mermaid? Do you get the feeling that you can read people's intentions before you get to know them?

Well, if you answered yes to any of these questions, we have the explanation for it. All you have to do is take this quiz to find out who or what your mythical guardian is.
