In almost all cases, proximity is needed to shield an individual, but it is not neccessary to have that person in view. The shield will protect them from anything, ranging from any kind of ability, to a physical attack or an accident. A shield has never failed when the character who created it is present. However, it is impossible to use it to shield oneself, and it is impossible to use the ability to shield a person permanently. It is also draining to try to shield too many individuals at once.
