What I am getting at is this: the Bodyguard isn't about sacrificing one ship to keep another one safe.(That is what an 18 point Leatin is for.) The Bodyguard EPT is about creating a synergetic combo that gives exceptional strength when the two ships are together at Range 1.
And on the flip side, make is so juicy that it hurts as well to have to eat through an extra agility.
For example Serissu with an HLC and Stealth Device is a Fat Scyk that deserves to be blown up.
After all, in a society where Gods or Technology can create the perfect woman, why would you go out dating?
As part of her bodyguard protocol, Guri was an expert assassin.
Similar to the shock one feels to learn that Samus Aran is a girl, it is quite mind-bending to learn that Guri is actually an android.
She was the product of the best minds in both cloning and robotics.
Or perhaps you fly aggressively so that Guri is at range 1 of the enemy while your Scum Ace is behind her at the safer distance of Range 2.
That way Guri receives her free focus token and both ships can absorb a lot of damage.
However, the physical attractiveness of Guri hints at another motive.
It is this author's opinion that Xizor, the lonely and single Dark Prince, actually had a Pygmalion complex.
She needs to be escorting an ally that your opponent REALLY wants to kill.
