The Watchdog of Corflu is a 72 metre high creature that is made from parts of a broken statue that the Lunars found and assembled. They didn't find the whole statue, accordingly, the watchdog consists of shoulders, two arms (which it is uses as legs as well) and a head with a gaping mouth and a single black, ominous eye.

I'm not sure whether the Lunars animated the statue through magical/divine means, or if it spontaneously came to life when the parts were put together.

The watchdog is Corflu's major defence against raiders and sea monsters.

The Lunars used the watchdog in a last ditch attack on the giant's cradle in 1621.
