The Four Symbols (Chinese: 四象; pinyin: Sì Xiàng, literally meaning "four images"), are four mythological creatures appearing among the Chinese constellations along the ecliptic, and viewed as the guardians of the four cardinal directions. These four creatures are also referred to by a variety of other names, including "Four Guardians", "Four Gods", and "Four Auspicious Beasts". They are the Azure Dragon of the East, the Vermilion Bird of the South, the White Tiger of the West, and the Black Tortoise (also called "Black Warrior") of the North. Each of the creatures is most closely associated with a cardinal direction and a color, but also additionally represents other aspects, including a season of the year, a virtue, and one of the Chinese "five elements" (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water). Each has been given its own individual traits and origin story. Symbolically, and as part of spiritual and religious belief, these creatures have been culturally important across countries in the East Asian cultural sphere.

|Longji Gongzhu Introduction|
"Ah, there you are! ... Ehh? Join you? ——Now's not the time to be saying such things!"
"The situation's urgent! There's something I want to tell you, so I came."
"Do you know? In the Flower Country, you see, there's a 'Divine Beast' called the 'Four Guardians'.
"The 'Black Tortoise', the 'White Tiger', the 'Azure Dragon', and the 'Vermilion Bird'. They have been slumbering since time immemorial, and should've been slumbering until and from now."
"——However, they have awoken. Without warning."
"The people of the Flower Country were surprised by the Four Guardians appearing, but for us who live in Shenxian-Xiang, they're a grave problem."
"This is the ancient legend that has been passed down in Shenxian-Xiang: 'When the world is in peril, the Four Guardians shall awaken. To bestow a great blessing upon the one who overcomes the Four Guardians' trial'."
"... I don't want to think about it, but it may somehow be related to the angels' invasion. I wonder what on earth is happening in Tenkai..."
"Hm... We must focus on what's before us rather than Tenkai now. Overthinking matters is my bad habit as a researcher."
"The story doesn't end just there. The divine power granted from defeating the Four Guardians. Xiexian, seeking that power, have begun to invade the land of the awoken Four Guardians.
"This legend shouldn't have been known to anyone besides those in Shenxian-Xiang... It's not certain from where this information has leaked, but there's no doubt the Xiexian desire the power of the Four Guardians."
"You will challenge the Four Guardian's trial and obtain their power before it's lost to the Xiexian."
"I know this is a selfish request. Even so, Prince, will you work with us..."
"What a blessing a friend is! I'm glad I could rely on you."
"That said, the opponent the guardian deities of a whole country that have lived since time immemorial. They will prove very difficult to manage. So I shall bestow upon you the knowledge of everything I know."
"The 'Black Tortoise' is a divine beast in the shape of a tortoise who possesses solid defence. Though it's slow, simply approaching its titanic body is dangerous."
"It would be best to think arrows won't do. That's right... You may want to request the cooperation of magicians who can attack from a distance."
"The 'White Tiger' is a divine beast who is quick and nimble. They say it will lead its prey around by the nose with its swift movement and then dig in with its claws that cut through air."
"It can clamber around even steep cliffs with its powerful legs to injure those in the rear, so it would be to keep that in mind. Having your front line protecting those who are vulnerable would be a wise policy."
"The 'Azure Dragon' is a divine beast that controls lightning. It can generate lightning that can pierce any defence."
"Considering its great damage potential, you may need to increase the number of healers on your side. Try to draw its attention with those who boast high health."
"All that's left is... The 'Vermilion Bird'. A divine beast that controls very strong flames."
"In the legends, it is said it emits a 'heat wave' that can scorch the surrounding area, but... At the moment, that condition hasn't been confirmed."
"Yes, yes. You should be able to alleviate the health loss from the 'heat wave' with the power of those versed in Feng Shui. Even then, carelessness is forbidden, so watch yourself."
"Fuu... Shenxian-Xiang is quickly working on a counter-strategy. We've also received some research data that suggests they're able to blow people away."
"If it's you, I suppose you know about it? It seems the Four Guardians also have the 'Lord's authority' the same as the other divine beasts."
"Orders in anticipation of a long battle will be essential. ... Yes, that'll work. Well then, Prince, overcome the Four Guardian's trial!"
Longji Gongzhu: "I shall explain the details once we've returned. Is that fine with you, Anna?"
|Longji Gongzhu Epilogue|
"Well, the one who worked the hardest was you. I also ought to give you my gratitude."
"Shenxian-Xiang also finally returned to its tranquil self. Though we're concerned about the prospects of the Four Guardian's power, everyone can rest assured knowing it's with you."
"By the way, the orb that appeared near you. May you show that to me?"
"——Yes, no doubt. That is the orb that received the Four Guardian's blessing."
"Yes, since you've been acknowledged by the Four Guardians, you were able to obtain the orb each of their power resides in."
"It's an object not even I—err—no one has seen before."
"In the legends... it sounds like you'll be able to receive the Four Guardian's blessing if you bring this orb out to the battlefield."
"Could it bestow the blessing of the Four Guardian's like in the legend? Mu—, what kind of blessing is it, I wonder? Personally speaking, I'm very, very interested in it!"
"Speaking of which, as for the one who overcame the Four Guardian's trial, they say even the 'Yellow Dragon', who's known as the head of the Four Guardians, will lend its power!"
"I'm certain it'll be a great boon for you. When you want to borrow the power of the Four Guardians, try changing your title to 'One who Overcame the Four Guardian's Trial' [四紙の試練を超えし者]."
"Well then, I'll return to report to Shenxian-Xiang as well, so thank you very much for your help, Prince!"
