Amounts of Guards[]

  • 65 (before Elgen Academy is established)
  • Approximately 30 (Elgen Academy only)
  • 2,000 (Rise of the Elgen)
  • 3,450 (Battle of The Ampere)
  • 6,000 (Hunt for Jade Dragon)
  • 12,000 (Storm of Lightning)
  • 16,000 (Fall of Hades)
  • 125 (The Final Spark, initially)
  • 250 (During the Final Spark)
  • 35 (Epilogue of the Final Spark)

The amount of guards fluctuates throughout the series. The guards have greatly risen to 16,000 in force, but by the end of Fall of Hades, the amount of guards have greatly decreased from 16,000 to 125 soldiers (after Michael blows up the island most of the guards were on). The soldiers are mainly from different countries. However, during the final Spark, Hatch calls in 250 guards from Taiwan, New Zealand, and the Philippines. By the end of the series, most of the guards have been killed (by Michael Vey and the Electroclan), and only 35 remain alive. It is unknown if the thirty-five left alive where arrested, or regained their jobs as security officers at the Elgen. It is also unclear if new guards were hired or not.
