Guardians and their Origins

Thank you all for this amazing opportunity to learn more of the games lore, nothing makes a game more enjoyable than truly immersing yourself in its history.

I would like to ask about something that I've been wondering for a while. Guardians as is stated were originally Elonian Paragons who came with the order of whispers to mainland Tyria and began to learn the skills of both Tyrian Monks and Canthan Ritualists as was noted in Sea of Sorrows. I'm curious exactly what sort of powers of a ritualist that a guardian could use, as of the three classes there doesn't seem as much on them compared to the Paragons buffing and the priests shielding and healing. Would it be possible that a guardian could invoke powers beyond just what we see in-game from these old proffessions?
