    I haven't read Lost Army, Edge of Oblivion and Green Lanterns yet, so I don't know what happened to every member of the GLC since Convergence but I am wondering where the templar guardians are. Are they dead? Rebirth keeps saying that a large amount of the Corps was killed in its absence from the galaxy. Does this include these Guardians? What happened?

    @mp13: I came across your question while google-searching it myself. From what I can find, they haven't been involved past GL:New Guardians 40 & (pre-rebirth) GL 39, where they told Kyle they were leaving to go do good across the universe, and talked to Hal prior to his leaving the GLC (respectively). Comic Vine's appearance-listing for them has them appearing in more GL issues, but looking over a few I didn't see them (maybe they were mentioned in passing by Hal, but they were not physically in the story).

    I imagine they they were essentially forgotten/written off, just so the writers could move on to introducing the guardian with the phantom ring (his name escapes me) & re-introducing Ganthet & Syad. When they recently mentioned they were the only guardians left I thought, "wait...what?? What about the ones who had guarded Volthoom??"

    @lightsout I know, right? I thought they would return when the phantom guardian came around in rebirth but apparently no one, or at least none of the writers, seem to care or remember. I get it if they're trying to limit the amount of guardians around or something to allow John a more of a leader role and more authority in the GLC but I miss Paalko, Yekop and Zalla. Here's hoping they'll come back someday and join Ganthet and Sayd.
