A green Gargoyle

Gargoyles are a race of powerful living golems that often remain in stationary statue positions before revealing themselves for combat. Sandy gargoyles are often found in Hammerfell, though green-skinned gargoyles can also be encountered under the control of vampires.

There are four gargoyles at every Anka-Ra Burial Site in Craglorn. After three waves of enemies are defeated, two of the gargoyles awaken and walk slowly towards the Star-Gazer Priest. The gargoyles do not fight back, but they must be burned down to prevent them from reaching the Star-Gazer. If the gargoyles aren't killed in time, they'll unleash a powerful ground pound and kill the priest.
