Description: Gauntlet is a 14-foot tall suit of rust-colored armor, complete with a horned helm. While it appears to be made of iron, the magic that animates it gives it a significantly higher durability. It's difficult to tell that it's unmanned, so to speak, until one takes a good look at the helm--vacant, save for the eye holes that occasionally take on an infernal red glow as it moves.

History: Various experiments with the Beast Rune have resulted in a wide array of disasters. The most recent setback was a man imbued with the Beast Rune in 1991 leveling an Arizona town after he escaped his handlers. A cultist sent to retrieve it subsequently disappeared, and with her, all hope for progress stagnated. 15 years later, a human born with the rune's power was discovered, and an effort was yet again made to acquire its immense power. However, human imbuement was still impossible, and so the idea was to attempt to create a golem with the Beast Rune's immeasurable power inside it instead. It took several years (and several more cultists' lives) before the being known as Gauntlet was born, with a single task in mind...


One-Track Mind: Gauntlet is not terribly bright, and its singular focus is retrieval (or destruction) of any runic magic deemed necessary by the cult who created it.

Your HTML's a bit off. Make sure you've got your italics and such in the right place.

Why not have him detect all kinds of magic (since he's an NPC and the points don't matter); that way he can be used in broader stories.

Similarly, why not drop his Dex to 6 and get that Initiative penalty plus more points to spend?
