The Guard is the title of the ruler of the Valley of Shadows. The Guard has incredible powers sustained by the valley's prisoners. He and the prison exist by absorbing the life force of the prisoners and so the captured creatures remained petrified for most of their time.
The current Guard intended to absorb the Light of Meridian's power and with it her life force. Caleb confronted the Guard and managed to somehow defeat him. As The Guard is just another prisoner and the only way he could escape his role is to be defeated and hence the victorious challenger became their successor. It is unknown whether the Guard was the original or just another challenger who managed to defeat a guard. Caleb underwent a metamorphosis that weakened him for a while.
The original Guard then escaped, bringing along him the Guard's Lance and Blue Destiny. He was about to escape when Caleb appeared and retrieved the objects, resulting in the Guard's perpetual petrification.
