A Tower Defender (Castellum vindex)is a synthetic being that was created long ago by a demented God. Flung from the heavens, it eventually wound up at Godville.
A most evil Hero coveted all that the Tower Defender had built, and raised and army of Pure Evil ! heroes to sack the castle and take it for himself.
The High Keep fell. A Defender banished. Darkness came. Plague covered the land. All perished of hunger or despair. Most wicked usurper died despondent on his stolen throne.
Now, the Tower Defender seeks to destroy all the Evil Heroes that defiled its temple. It may never find them, but it has vouchsafed that it will make these Evil Heroes' life's miserable for all eternity.

- prone to falling off ramparts from great heights if it is dazzled by reflective armor
