Construct of Justice (3.5e NPC Class)
From D&D Wiki
Construct of Justice
Many thousands of years ago, an ancient order of paladins and peacekeepers felt there was too much injustice and chaos in the land. Working with master smiths and divine casters, they created the first: Construct of Justice. Used as a way of keeping balance in remote areas or when paladins and similar law bringers were unavailable to be present, Constructs of Justice were used. For the first several hundred years, they worked perfectly; Towns that had been riddled with crime and unlawfulness were rebuilt as places of equality and justice. However, after some time, it became evident that the constructs took their justice to the extreme. While not cruel, they held no remorse for those who broke the law, they were judge, jury, and when the law demanded it, executioner. The order, realizing that the constructs were not a true substitute for living peacekeepers, quickly removed them from the world as well as they could. However not all were dismantled and some still roam the land searching for areas where corruption dwells. If you do happen to cross paths with one, you had better pray that you have not committed any known acts against the law, or else you will be facing swift, utter justice.

Class Skills (4 + Int modifier per level)
All of the following are class features of the Construct of Justice:
- Aura of Law (Ex)
The power of a construct’s aura of law (see the detect good spell) is equal to their level.
- Detect Chaos (Sp)
At will, a construct of Justice can use detect chaos, as the spell.
- Channel Health (Su)
Starting at second level, a construct can channel divine energy into targets healing a total of the construct's Level x its Wisdom bonus per day. A Construct may choose to divide its healing among multiple recipients, and doesn’t have to use it all at once. Using channel health is a standard action with a range of 30 feet.
- Smite Chaos (Su)
Once per day, a construct of Justice may attempt to smite chaos with one normal melee attack. They adds its Wisdom bonus (if any) to their attack roll and deals 1 extra point of damage per construct level. If the construct accidentally smites a creature that is not chaotic, the smite has no effect, but the ability is still used up for that day.

Beginning at 3rd level, each ally within 10 feet of the construct gains a +4 morale bonus on saving throws against fear effects.
