Haven, Maine Wiki

The Guard's symbol; typically seen as a tattoo but appears throughout the show as a symbol of the Troubled.

The Guard is a group in Haven. This group dedicates their lives to saving The Troubled at any costs. The members all wear a Maze tattoo and most have a Trouble.


The Guard helps the troubled and ensures that Mara (currently known as Audrey) enters the Barn every 27 years. The group grew and continued their mission. When Lucy appeared, they made sure she entered the barn.

According to Jordan McKee, In the "Escape to Haven" (#EscapeToHaven) web series, that the Maze tattoo was originally used during medieval times as a way of branding the Trouble and ensuring easy identification of the supernatural. Later The Guard would adopt the former mark of shame as their logo. However Dwight Hendrickson, later claims, in the same web series no less, that the Guard is nothing but lies, so how much of that version of the Tattoo's origin story is true is left open to doubt.

The organization came to the attention of Nathan and Audrey around season 3 during the murders of the Bolt-Gun Killer. Nathan decides to infiltrate the group via Jordan McKee, but they were using him to get to Audrey, by using Ginger Danvers to control Nathan to get Mara into the Barn, where she would go to stop the troubles for 27 years. In season 4 the Guard tried to kill Nathan because he destroyed the Barn and the troubles stayed and caused havoc to Haven, but Vince saved their lives and convinced the Guard to keep Nathan alive so he could find Audrey to kill him.

The nurse, who reveals to be a member, talks to Dwight and she questions him on Vince's whereabouts. In Speak No Evil, Dwight takes over the Guard from Vince after he fails to get protection for Henry Barrow. With control of the Guard, Dwight demands that Nathan hands Mara over to them. When Nathan fails to do so after he realized Audrey is still in there, Dwight orders the Guard to go after him.

Rhett was initially the only member who is not Troubled nor did he have the tattoo. But after the explosion of Duke Crocker's Trouble-Bomb, Stan and Rafferty also join the Guard despite not having Troubles.

In New World Order, The Guard takes control of Haven when a bunch of new troubles are released from Duke and everyone is trapped inside Haven by a fog wall.

When Audrey ended the Troubles permanently in Forever, the Guard was dissolved, no longer being needed.
