Blunk is a small and smelly creature who lives on Meridian. He is a Passling, a short toad goblin like creature who travels through the dimensions to find and steal goods to sell. Blunk was captured by Prince Phobos and put in a cell that you had to climb up to get out of. After trying to escape over 3700 times, he got prisonmates, Caleb and Will in his debut in "It Resumes". Both took an immediate disliking to the extremely smelly Passling, but knew they had to work with him to escape, until the other Guardians arrived and saved all three.
The prison keeper Vathek was actually a spy for the rebel army and had given Caleb the key to escape once he had found a way to climb to the top. Caleb had a place he was supposed to put the key during his escape so Vathek wouldn't be discovered as a traitor, but Blunk found it and stole it. Blunk went to Earth with Caleb and the Guardians and quickly made a home there: the Silver Dragon's dumpster. Blunk learned about Earth and constantly took goods from Earth to sell to the Meridianites. In "The Key" Caleb learned that Blunk had taken the key from its hiding spot, as Vathek had already been suspected by Phobos to be a spy.
Caleb and the Guardians went to Meridian and were able to frame the high-ranking guard of Phobos, Raythor, of stealing the key. Vathek was saved but the Guardians and Caleb continued to dislike Blunk. Blunk, being able to sniff out portals, frequently went to Earth and back. Half the time he was in Meridian finding goods, helping the Guardians and selling to customers, and half the time he was in Earth finding goods, helping the Guardians and sniffing out portals for them. Once, Blunk got a cold and was treated by his mother. Blunk always helped Caleb in his missions, and when he was almost eaten by Cedric and Miranda, Caleb demanded a left-behind guard, Tynar where was his "friend". Blunk was so happy at Caleb and from then on sticks to him.
In "The Stolen Heart" Blunk was framed for stealing the Heart of Kandrakar, which an evil, greedy passling named Jeek had done. He suddenly became an outlaw to them, but decided to prove his innocence. Blunk found a portal to Meridian and combated Jeek for the Heart, just before it was going to have gone to Prince Phobos and Cedric. The Guardians arrived and helped Blunk, forgiving him. In "The Final Battle" Blunk wanted to prove that he was a warrior, not a scavenger and helped fight Cedric with Matt. Meridian was freed but Blunk decided to continue to go to Earth and back.
Blunk was one of the many allies of the Guardians that were summoned to Kandrakar to meet the Oracle and his Council. Blunk was excited to have found a new world because it meant new items to sell. When the Oracle caught Blunk stealing, he gave Blunk the Tooth of the Tonga, allowing him to create folds in the universe to traverse dimensions now that the Veil had been lowered and no more portals existed. In "B is for Betrayal", "F is for Facades" and "I is for Illusion", Blunk proved useful in sniffing out the Knights of Vengeance through the extremely smelly rhino Crimson. He can be easily persuaded into do other people favours in exchange for something else, usually garbage.
In "G is for Garbage" Blunk rediscovered the Horn of Hypnos, capable of turning innocent people into mind slaves to the user. Blunk outtraded Jeek for it, and used the Tonga Tooth to create a fold to go to Earth to give to the Guardians, but Jeek who had followed him to Earth stole it. Blunk tried to tell Irma this but Irma was mad at Blunk for putting all his garbage in her parents' garage. Blunk eventually got the message through and when the Knights of Vengeance got ahold of the Horn, they used it to make Jeek, Will, Matt, Taranee, Cornelia and Hay Lin into Trance Marchers.
Irma had to team up with Blunk to free their friends and avoid hearing the Horn. Blunk took Irma to his secret garbage hideout, but Jeek was able to sniff them out. Blunk tried to remember the tune that broke the spell to the Horn, but couldn't. Eventually the two got along and Irma apoligized to Blunk for all the mean things she said to him. In working together, they were able to avoid the spell, destroy the Horn, and free their friends once Blunk remembered the tune.
Blunk continued to be useful in sniffing out villains and being the messenger as shown in "J is for Jewel", "K is for Knowledge", "N is for Narcissist", and "O is for Obedience". Blunk went with the Guardians to Zamballa, and helped them battle Nerissa and her Knights of Destruction. In "Q is for Quarry" Will hired Blunk to spy on her dad's new fiance, Sarina Sanchez, suspecting she may be a glamoured Nerissa. Blunk was competent at finding out that Sarina wasn't Nerissa.
Blunk played a major role in "R is for Relentless" where he had to help Hay Lin fold to different dimensions, including Earth, Meridian, Kandrakar and Zamballa to avoid Nerissa getting ahold of Yan Lin. Blunk learned that Nerissa had put a tracking spell on his Tooth, making Yan Lin falling to Nerissa inevitable. Blunk reappears in "V is for Victory" and "W is for Witch" where he helps the Guardians try and get Phobos accustomed to Earth and to defeat Nerissa. When Phobos takes siege on Meridian in "X is for Xanadu" both he and Caleb are captured in the Battle of the Infinite City.
Blunk and Caleb are sentenced to death by Phobos, but Taranee, Will and Raythor (now on the good side) are able to free both of them. Blunk goes to Kandrakar where he reunites with his Mama. Blunk participates in the final battle of Kandrakar where he helps Caleb, Gargoyle and Sandpit defeat Miranda. After that, Blunk returns to Meridian and continues to smuggle.IMOWHT....

An Altermere is an Astral Drop brought to life through the power of Quintessence. Unlike Astral Drops, they don't fade away when "Astral Drop" is said, they are actual living beings with feelings, emotions and memories. The concept of Altermeres is introduced in "H is for Hunted" when Will creates an Astral Drop to do her chores. Nerissa soon creates trouble by making it in an Altermere. Nerissa lets the Altermere live a life to have experience. Altermere Will has a wonderful time, but when she learns that she will be absorbed back into the Heart of Kandrakar by Will, she decides to replace her permanently.
The real Will tries to hunt her down but fails until they confront outside the school dance. Both go into Guardian form and have a battle. The other girls and Caleb can't tell which is which, but eventually they figure it out and trap her. Will tells them to stop when they realize Nerissa has caused all the trouble, and the Altermere wants to live. An annoyed Nerissa uses her power on the real Will, but the Altermere saves her life and Will absorbs her into her body, gaining all her memories.
In "R is for Relentless" Nerissa is trying to corrupt Yan Lin to her side, but can't. So she traps Yan Lin in the Seal of Nerissa and creates an Altermere double who doesn't realize she isn't the real Yan Lin until Nerissa tells her. Altermere Yan Lin, not having the strength of character as the real one, is corrupted by Nerissa, and the former Guardians are reunited. Hay Lin thinks Yan Lin has betrayed her as she doesn't learn that the former Air Guardian she is fighting is not the real Yan Lin.
Eventually the former Guardians break free from Nerissa's control, so she traps them, including the Altermere Yan Lin, into her Seal. In "Y is for Yield" all the former Guardians plus the Altermere and Elyon are able to contact Taranee through being in harmony and thats when Hay Lin learns her grandmother never betrayed her, and even the Altermere is now good. In "Z is for Zenith" all of them, except Nerissa, are freed, and Yan Lin introduces her long-lost sister she found in China to Joan and Chen Lin: Mira.

Sandpit is a living pit that any victims walk over and swallows them, imprisoning them. It also helps Phobos capture rebel members, he has no distinct personality and can't talk. Sandpit first appeared in "Ambush at Torus Filney" capturing Caleb after going for a false story about the Seal of Phobos. The Guardians manage to save Caleb from the pit's grasp. Irma and Taranee combine their powers to transform Sandpit into a shiny glass lake.
In "A is for Anonymous", when Nerissa is starting to form a group of Knights, she visits Sandpit and through the power of Quintessence, Sandpit came back to life and worked for Nerissa. Since coming back to life, he is now a tall new humanoid form that is free to wander. He is joined the Knights of Vengeance, mainly using his powers to make sure the Knights to safety and using his sand to blindsight or knock-over the enemies. Sandpit proved to be a useful member as he could disguise himself as a solid object in Earth, as seen in "C is for Changes" and "I is for Illusion" when he helps Miranda and Nerissa with their schemes.
In "J is for Jewel", Sandpit helps Raythor and Miranda release Prince Phobos and using his transparent abilities to unlock the gate for the Knights to escape. Elyon is able to defeat Phobos and the Knights, and Sandpit is trapped in a container so he can't escape at any cost.

Khor the Destroyer was a terrifying beast of legend that fed off anger. When Mister Huggles the dormouse was trapped in Nerissa's cell on Mount Thanos with Matt in "L is for Loser", he squeezed through the bars to escape only to tortured by Nerissa. She transformed Huggles into a beast resembling the original destroyer, Khor. Khor the Destroyer became one of the four Knights of Destruction, still obeying Shagon's commands as Shagon was really Matt, his owner. Khor fed off anger and attacked Taranee in the first battle against the Guardians because her anger over her mother for not letting her see Nigel made him even more powerful.
Khor is the only knight who doesn't have wings, and is the most barbaric, running on four legs and jumping on people to attack. Khor does Nerissa's and Shagon's bidding, participating in the fighting on Kandrakar and Zamballa, mainly fighting Caleb. In "S is for Self" Nerissa uses the power of the Knights of Destruction to fuel the transformation of the former Guardians, and thus Khor was destroyed, with Mister Huggles returning to his old self.
In "U is for Undivided" the Heart of Earth, Lillian Hale, gives her powers to the three Regents of Earth, Huggles, Matt and Napoleon. Mister Huggles regains the powers to transform to Khor, but this time at free will and Khor isn't fueled by anger. Khor helps defeat Nerissa in "W is for Witch" and later helps make Heatherfield into a giant glamour zone for the battle against Cedric in "Z is for Zenith".

One of the Four Knights of Destruction, given life by Nerissa with her power over Quintessence from the lava which flowed around Mount Thanos. She represents the pain that Nerissa felt for killing Cassidy. Ember gets her strength from the pain and hurt of her opponents. She looks like a lady with a pointy hair-do made from lava. Ember basically controlled the element of lava. Her weapon is like a

He believes she has feelings for him, but doubted when Irma publicly humiliated him on school-wide radio. Irma likes Martin only as a friend, but admitted she would miss it if he didn't bother her now and then, and seemed very jealous when he started to pay more attention to the new girl Sondra in "Divide and Conquer".

Voiced by B.J. Ward
A powerful wizard and mentor to both the old and new Guardians. During season 2, the Oracle was tricked into attempting to raise a smaller version of the Veil to guard the Aurameres. Nerissa redirects the Oracle's spell, and instead of creating a Veil around the fortress where the Aurameres are kept, he (by the aid of Nerissa) then creates a Veil that traps himself and the Council inside itself.
The Oracle remained trapped inside the new Veil, resembling a pink bubble, until the end of season 2, at which point the Heart of Meridian is used to break the spell.
Voiced by Michael Gough
A member of the Council of Kandrakar who played only a small part in the animated series. He had only a token role during season 1, and was trapped inside a smaller version of the Veil for much of season 2, and was only released in the final episode.
Michael Bell(first voice), Michael Gough (second voice)
A member of the Council of
Kandrakarand a great supporter of the Oracle. He was mistaken as being the Oracle by the girls because of his elderly looks in opposition to the young appearance of the Oracle himself. Along with the rest of the Council of Kandrakar, Tibor was trapped inside a miniature version of the Veil during season 2.
A Feline-like member of the Council of Kandrakar and the keeper of the Aurameres. Was forced to guard Kandrakar alone after Nerissa trapped the other Council members inside a miniature version of the Veil part way through season 2.
econdary Characters: Zamballa

Possible partner of Ironwood, and also a Zamballian, like all of the Zamballians is also a living purple tree. He is thoughtfull and cares for Ironwood.
Ironwood's son, still a young tree. He is obedient and small.
The Heart of Zamballa
The Heart of Zamballa, like the
Heart of Kandrakaris a jewel, but is shown to be a partially living being. Kadma consistently talked to the Heart, asking to be lent its power and to help "their" subjects, even occasionally asking for advice. The Heart, alike the Heart of Kandrakar has its own spirit, and is the owner of its own power, but is controlled by its holder.
The Heart of Zamballa was held by Kadma, and was later passed on to Ironwood.
It has been shown the Heart and its holders have the powers of:
* Warping Reality
* Creating force-field prisons
* Increasing the natural powers of its holder
* Allowing one to communicate with the Zamballans
* Control over the elements
* Mind control/influence
* Creating bolts of energy or light
Following the examples of other Hearts, the Heart of Zamballa can probably open folds in time and space. It is assumed that the Heart of Zamballa cannot open portals, because it was stated that Kadma was stuck in Zamballa after the Veil was raised.
