The Ebon Vanguard—originally made up of an official unit, the Ascalon Vanguard—operates behind Charr lines. As the unit pressed north, it picked up human refugees, exiles, and escaped prisoners from the Charr work camps. Together they forged a new organization, toughened by their experiences and more flexible than a traditional military unit. They endured much hardship on the march through the harsh northern climes, but upon finding the Eye of the North, the Ebon Vanguard established a base of operations for their covert campaign of disruption.

The Guild Wars Eye of the North Manuscript

The Ebon Vanguard is filled with those of the Ascalon Vanguard who stayed behind to continue the fight against the Charr and the renewal of Ascalon. The Ebon Vanguard is the renamed Ascalon Vanguard, named such due to having more members than those of the Ascalon Vanguard. Unlike the Ascalon Vanguard the Ebon Vanguard are not independent of King Adelbern. Led by Captain Langmar, who was assigned leadership by Adelbern, the Ebon Vanguard have pushed further than any other Ascalonians.

Currently, they are held up within the Eye of the North in the Far Shiverpeaks where they perform guerrilla attacks on the Charr and are occasionally assaulted by native Centaurs and Norn.
