The Honor Guard are not characters, but rather form a "mini-unit" with the Demigod. As such, they neither generate nor take up a character slot.
The point cost is per Guard, and a Demigod may have a maximum of two.
The entire Honor Guard unit only makes a single intercept test per attack.
Regardless of which Demigod activates to initiate a Provocation, the Honor Guard is Detached immediately when the Demigods' bases make contact.
A Phalanx is arranged on the tabletop in the same manner as a Block Formation, but must be a minimum of 3 full ranks deep when formed (in addition to the other requirements listed in the Playtest Manual).
Phalanx's "Push Back" Ability:
Q: If an enemy unit is currently engaged from the side (by another unit) as well as the front (by the Phalanx), can the Phalanx still Push them Back?
A: Yes. The other units in contact are moved as well, maintaining their positions relative to the Pushed unit.
* Satyrs may only be led by a Satyr captain; no other Character may lead the unit.
