Lore

They are the main antagonists of Atlas of Worlds storyline, they are the guardians of the Void, which all 4 are needed to defeat to fight Shaper.[1]

In War for the Atlas storyline, their maps would be occupied by Elder Guardians instead if the players beat all four Guardians of the Void and spread Elder influence to their maps.

Since Conquerors of the Atlas expansion, they do not appear in the epilogue questline nor on the Atlas, and they are thus assumed to be defeated and slain like The Elder. They are still accessible from Zana and from the Map Device.

In Echoes of the Atlas expansion, the Guardians of the Void are somehow back to the lore as bosses in the Uncharted Realms. They can be duplicated by the Maven and fight them all at once in Maven's Invitation: The FormedMaven's Invitation: The FormedThe Maven must Witness:
Lair of the Hydra,
Maze of the Minotaur,
Forge of the Phoenix,
Pit of the Chimera
For those who must not endure it,
there may be found a perverse joy
in watching the struggle for survival.
Can be used in a personal Map Device. Modifiers to Item Quantity will affect the number of encounter rewards dropped.
