A large construct, designed to protect. It can take the blows dealt to others upon itself, though it is prone to becoming unstable and overheating after heavy punishment.

“‘Listen Reb _Golem_,’ the old man said, wagging his finger. ‘Pay attention to
what I say—you understand?’
‘Understand...’
‘If you want to stay here, you got to do like Mr. Gumbeiner says.’
‘Do-like-Mr.-Gumbeiner-says...’
‘_That's_ the way I like to hear a golem talk. Malka, give here the mirror
from the pocketbook. Look, you see your face? You see on the forehead, what's
written? If you don't do like Mr. Gumbeiner says, he'll wipe out what's
written and you'll be no more alive.’
‘No-more-alive...’
‘_That's_ right. Now, listen. Under the porch you'll find a lawnmower. Take
it. And cut the lawn. Then come back. Go.’”
-Avram Davidson, “The Golem”, 1955.

Useful Info

Guardian golems are constructs created by the spell Summon Guardian Golem. They are unable to attack, but they can shelter your summons from injuries, and may gain the Inner Flame status effect when severely damaged.
