According to Jane Jacob's theory Guardians exchange protection for support with Traders. Or to put it another way a Trader makes sure food is on the table and a Guardian makes sure no one steals it. At a crude level it is like TheMafia. At a better level it is more subtle and healthy and the symbiosis gives us something like a [[TheRepublic Republic]].

** Tradition serves several purposes. It reinforces group loyalty. It also helps make sure that power does not corrupt to much. JustFollowingOrders is a limited defense but so long as there is a reasonable idea of what orders can be issued when and when not there is a protection. An example of this is the American custom of demanding search warrants before entering a residency.

A Guardian is expected to be LawfulGood. He is a professional PapaWolf and holds to the ethos of institutions which are summed up in being a team of [[PapaWolf Papa Wolves]]. Typical Guardian occupations would be [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething rulers]], [[ColonelBadass soldiers]], [[AlwaysGetsHisMan police]], [[FiremenAreHot firemen]], [[GoodShepherd clergy]], [[ObstructiveBureaucrat hopefully-not-obstructive bureaucrats]], charity-workers. Or sometimes the [[MegaCorp larger and more institutionalized forms of business]]. Or other occupations that involve protecting people, places, things, or ideas. His job should involve [[WeHelpTheHelpless helping the helpless]].

** "Largesse" in the book's sense is not so much altruism per se (though it can also be that) as it is a way of showing a Guardian's prestige. A classic example is the "ring-giving" of old-fashioned war chiefs. Another example is the old custom of patronage of art or learning. In essence a trader is investing in gain, and a guardian is investing in reinforcing his guardianship. Those who have both tasks will have to choose.
