Ash Guardians are atronach-like ash creatures summoned by certain mages on Solstheim. They resemble the Storm Atronach except they are encased in stone rather than lightning. They will attack unless they feed on heart stones.

Ash Guardians can be conjured once you have completed the quest From the Ashes. The Ash Guardian never occupies a conjuration slot; you can still have one more summon (or two more, if you have the Twin Souls perk) in addition to the Ash Guardian. Moreover, only one Ash Guardian can exist at any given time; summoning a second one will make the existing one vanish. This is true whether you summon it with or without a heart stone, or one guardian with a stone and another without a stone.

Aside from the ones summoned by you, only two Ash Guardians are encountered in the game: One during the quest From the Ashes, the other at Highpoint Tower during Old Friends. Both are hostile to you.
