Despite its rock like appearance, its behavior is very much of an animal reminiscent of a bear or wolf. The creature is powered by nature magic. Smaller forms of this creature are called Sentries. Ivern has befriended an injured stone-golem. Knowing the poor creature was on the verge of death, he fashioned her a new heart from a river pebble. Adhering to the tradition of all mineral beings, the golem became Ivern's devoted life-friend. He named her Daisy, after the flowers that mysteriously sprouted from her stone body. Today, if Ivern is threatened, she races to his side.
In Ionia, sentinels are guardians of nature, protecting magically rich wildlife like trees from harm. If a tree a sentinel is guarding is desecrated or killed, the sentinel will wake up and attack whoever is responsible for this act. The only way to stop a sentinel from doing this is to trade back something equal to what was taken (a life for a life).
These species were only mentioned, but were never elaborated on.
