Guardian (real name: Nicholas Natsilane Maza) is a descendant of the Maza family in 2198 and also of Natsilane. He was one of the protagonists for the proposed spin-off Gargoyles 2198. 
Born in 2181, Nicholas (Nick for short) was raised among gargoyles and identifies with them closely, having even undergone bushido training in Ishimura.  He believes in their ideal of protection, and, in fact, comes as close as any human can to being a gargoyle without actually becoming one physically. He joins Samson's resistance cell in 2198, and will eventually become part of Nokkar's team in outer space.
Greg Weisman confirmed at the 2004 Gathering that Nick is descended from the adopted child of Goliath and Elisa Maza.
