In their natural environment, Stone Guardians are often mistaken for oddly shaped formations of rock. That is until they decide to move and protect their domain from intruders. Stone Guardians are rocklike in appearance, sometimes even with moss growing on their bodies. Their eyes are deep recesses in their craggy faces and if you get close enough (if you are crazy that is) you might see the light reflecting off the jewels hidden within.
They get their name from their territorial nature and are often found protecting natural caches of precious metals or jewels. Little is known about Stone Guardian physiology, what they eat or how they reproduce. What is known is that they continue to grow as they age and there are some truly gigantic specimens in the world that may be several millennia old. It is unknown whether they can die from old age.
