Sentinel and Guide

What Is This?

(noun) 1. a person, such as a sentry, assigned to keep guard.
2. a person, in pre-civilized cultures, who patrolled the border, with senses sharper than normal humans, honed by time spent in isolation. Someone with hyperactive senses, all five senses heightened.
[16th Century: from Old French sentinelle, from Old Italian sentinella, from sentina watchfulness, from sentire to notice, from Latin]

"In all tribal cultures, every village had a sentinel. Now, a sentinel is chosen because of a genetic advantage -- a sensory awareness that can be developed beyond normal humans. Your time spent in Peru has got to be connected with what's happening to you now. I've got hundreds of documented cases of one or two hyperactive senses but not one single subject with all five. You could be the real thing."

James Ellison: Sentinel.

(verb) 1. to lead the way for (a person).
2. to supervise or instruct (a person).
3. to advise or influence (a person) in his standards or opinions.
(noun) 4. a person, animal or thing that guides.
[14th Century: from (Old) French guider of Germanic origin; compare Old English witan to observe.]

"You see, it's suggested in Burton's research, is that when a Sentinel is working his deal, he gets oblivious to the outside world. Sorta like the blinders are on. Usually he had a partner along, someone to watch his back."
