Savage Guardian (4e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
The Savage Guardian is a brutally powerful creature that once was human. Now, it's fused with the essence of a dragon, marking it as a creature not unlike the dragonspawn.
The Savage Guardian is a hulking Dragonborn, stark white and feral with rage. He is attended to by his trio of White Guards.

Savage Guardian Tactics
A Savage Guardian attacks recklessly, always at the target nearest. White Guards attempt to direct his attacks and are not attacked by it, but primarily serve as a ward between him and those with powerful fire attacks. A Savage Guardian will use its ice claws until a target tries to flee, whereupon it will resort to Splintered Pike. Upon using Splintered Pike, the Savage Guardian usually follows up with an action point to use Claws.
