The Leonid Guard is an outlawed group that formerly served as an armed force for the protection and provision of any other services necessary to the members of the House of Ayreon-Kalirion. It was established by the issuance of the Charter of the House of Ayreon-Kalirion.

The Guard became controversial for its failure to prevent serious breaches of security, resulting in the miscarriage of one of Queen Noor's pregnancies and the subsequent poisoning of two of her sons. As a consequence the Guard was severely purged during the year 1639 - with many members of the guard being dismissed or crucified by the ESB-Jörmungandr Group which administered the purge in Goldshire on behalf of the Queen. Guardsmen were controversially extradited from Natopia during this purge.

The functions of the Leonid Guard were subsequently taken over by the Jaysh al-Sathrati.
