A Topiary guardian is a plant that has been sculpted into the shape of a creature and then animated with magic. Even though they are the same dimensions as the creature they resemble, they weigh much less because they're constructed from twigs and branches.[1] Topiary guardians often guard druid rings or shrines to druidic deities such as Mielikki or Chauntea.[2] They may also be found in the gardens of the wealthy.

A Topiary guardian will follow the orders of its creator if they are nearby. Otherwise they follow the last instructions they received.

CombatEdit

A Topiary guardian's attacks are similar to those used by the creature it resembles. For example, a topiary guardian shaped like a lion can pounce on an opponent and rake it with his claws.[3]
