Black marble gargoyle
Crafted from lustrous black marble, the gargoyle is a statue granted life to serve as a guardian of its creator's domain. With a head and body of a lion, stunted draconic wings and a serpentine tail, the gargoyle is curiously elegant despite its incongruous parts. Sculpted muscles move with predatory grace, while razor-sharp claws and curving incisors promise lethal violence. A broad collar of intertwined adders is chiseled around its neck.
Said to have been created by Asketi to serve her every whim, these monstrous gargoyles protect her icy domain from heathens and unbelievers.
It is wearing nothing!
It is carrying nothing!

- Spell Prep: The marble gargoyle begins chanting a raspy prayer to Asketi and the wind begins to pick up in response.
- Spell Cast: A black marble gargoyle roars triumphantly as it concludes its prayer to Asketi. The gargoyle snaps its wings ferociously, baring its fangs in an enraged snarl as it sends a blast of icy wind toward you!
