This creature looks like a small statue of a winged beast of some kind-except, of course, that it is moving.
A temple gargoyle is a small stone figure animated with a willing spirit from the Upper Planes. Unlike most constructs, the gargoyle is quite intelligent, capable of defending its church without explicit instructions. Clerics often craft temple gargoyles as permanent defenders of a specific temple, designing the gargoyle’s shape to fit into a specific niche in the building’s façade.
Temple guardians stand no more than 3 feet tall but weigh over 80 lbs. They speak Celestial and Common.
