Avguard is narcissistic and prideful and desires to be the best adventurer in the land. He will stop at nothing to make sure everyone knows of his great deeds.
During the Christmas of 2016 The Game Grumps played Feel The Snow and Arin made the mistake, as many do, to believe that Avguard would protect the player from Nightmares as he carries a sword. This however is not the case and Avguard doesn't help at all. Stay safe!
