The Sapphire Guard were the formalized sentries of the Legislation Chambers in Kandor, capital of the planet Krypton.


The Sapphire Guards were leading elite soldiers of Krypton's Warrior Guild that were handpicked to guard and protect the Council of Five, as well as chamber itself.[citation needed]

Kryptonian Civil War

When General Zod, military leader of and his followers from the Sword of Rao captured the Chamber and murdered the Law Council members, the Sapphire Guards, armed only with their energy lances, were unsuccessful in stopping them. After Zod followed Jor-El, who had stolen the growth codex, to his homestead, Jor-El and Zod battled with Zod stabbing Jor-El. The Sapphire Guards, in turn, followed Zod and his forces and subsequently arrested them.[1]
