What's the meaning of との in this sentence?

わしが後衛との壁になろう。

It's a case particle と ("with" as in "face with something" or "fight with someone") followed by a noun-linking particle の. See:

Assuming this sentence is said in a common fantasy RPG-like setting, 後衛との壁 refers to either of:

  • the wall (tank) that blocks ranged attacks (e.g., arrows) coming from rear members of the enemy
  • the wall (tank) that guards rear members (e.g. supporters, healers) of the ally

The former is more likely but it may mean the latter depending on the context.
