my protectors

This is subtly touching diction: the Creature has convinced himself that he has mistaken the De Laceys and recasts them in the role in which for many months he had conceived them to act: see II:5:22 for his recognition that he has invented this appellation. The De Laceys, of course, have never consciously done the Creature any good whatsoever.
