Shaped like a humanoid torso atop the lower body of a winged, powerfully-built panther, this large construct seems an impressively realistic likeness. Carved out of the dark stone from which it takes its name, an obsidian statue has eerie, green eyes that shine brightly within deep sockets. Undead armies use obsidian statues as figureheads, placing them at the forefront of battle or near strategically important locales, such as armories or headquarters. They inspire awe in the hearts of their enemies, but more importantly they provide useful support to their undead masters. Obsidian statues fight without thought or tactic, using their mystic blasts to pummel those foes close to them. They hate living beings and strike at any living creature that comes within range. Obsidian statues never engage undead in battle unless they are directly threatened by them. Obsidian statues do not speak.
