Stone Golem (4e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Stone Golems are large creatures forged by stone, and given life by a powerful magician or artificier. Since they are made of stone, they weigh a lot. But they can talk like all other creatures, and they're not stupid. They also do have a mind of their own, which few people seem to remember.

The Stone Golems can run and withstand damage, but because of their intimidating look, they don't make good diplomates. They also dont fit in common Elven or Human rooms, because the ceiling often is too low. Stone Golems varies much on how they look. They can have a smooth shaped body, roughly shaped body, rune-inscripted, or whatever form their creators might have wanted. Stone Golems are usually forged amongst dwarves, but they can be forged by any one else too.

Stone Golem Adventurers
Two sample stone golem adventurers are described below.
Caedan is a Stone Golem forged in the dwarven city of Haggathorn. His creator- both his constructor and lifegiver, Adrik, disappeared under mystical circumstances. He now serves the dwarven militia as a warrior, even though he always keeps an eye or an ear out for clues about Adrik. Caedan is not devoted to any deity, just to serve the dwarven militia, as Adrik commanded him to do. He's the only Golem there, therfore he feels lonely. All the other dwarves look upon him as a machine, not as a fellow creature. A fact that is bothering Caedan to the tip of insanity. Should he leave the militia, or should he go out and search for Adrik?
Daemon was forged in the fires of the Abyss. Her lifegiver- a balor with the name of Dandro, inscripted her with the runes of fire, making her able to make things burn by simply touching it. She serves as Dandros private lifeguard and servant, relentlessly killing innocent people whenever Dandro asks her to do so. Even though shes devoted to him, she starts noticing that he uses her just as a tool. Therefore, she dreams of running away and settling down somewhere else. Because of Dandros influence on her, she has a serious lack of moral, which makes her hard to live with amongst other races than the demons. Of this, she is perfectly aware.
