Aolaz

Aolazes are great beasts carved from stone and metal and magically imbued with the essence of life. The exact means of their creation is a long-lost secret, and they are so rare that scholars have little opportunity to study active specimens. The best-known aolazes are museum pieces or battlefield relics destroyed or deactivated centuries ago, though fragmented records suggest that many more were made and might remain, yet to be unearthed.

Most aolazes are built in the shape of great land-bound beasts, such as elephants, rhinoceroses, or dinosaurs. Regardless of the specific creature an aolaz has been constructed to resemble, it is not bound to walk the earth like its inspirations are—it's imbued with the magical ability to pursue across water and even through the air. Few can escape an aolaz's wrath once it is earned.

Flawless Hearing An aolaz has an incredible sense of hearing. It can hear any sound made within 1,000 feet as though it were only 5 feet away from the source of the sound, and any sound within 1 mile as though it were only 30 feet away from the source of the sound. An aolaz's hearing is a precise sense.

Sidebar - Additional Lore Jistkan Behemoths

Thousands of years ago, the Jistka Imperium mastered the art of construct creation, and the aolaz represents the height of its craft. The Jistkans used primal magic to imbue their constructs with spirits of nature. However, when Jistkan creators turned to the outer planes, and to fiends in particular, as a source to power even greater constructs, they unknowingly orchestrated their own doom.
