The League of Guardians has a long and proud tradition. Now that you are one of our ranks, I charge you with the maintenance of our reputation - in your words and deeds, in your manner of dress, and how you protect the area you defend. The official uniform is only for formal occasions. But I expect, as you assume your role, to dress as an upright citizen. None of you should resemble rounin or any of the lower classes. That aspect is for the Salvage Crew. I have sent the following uniform to be worn at official gatherings and when you must reveal yourself to the public. Soujoubou, League of Guardians To the new Guardian of Nonogawa
