In promotions: Only through proven bravery and loyalty shall any recruit rise through the ranks. Nobility, wealth, or charisma will not grant you prestige here, and no exceptions are made. Each recruit must demonstrate valor in battle, loyalty to High Rock, and courage and strength of character in the face of adversity. Opportunities to prove such are plenty, and the Lion Guard watches the members of every cohort with great interest. Preserving our reputation as steadfast, trustworthy protectors of the highest martial skill is paramount. Any found in violation of our strict standards will be removed from the ranks without question. We will only accept those who best exemplify our values, and those who wish, above all, to serve their people without question or hesitation.
