[ Notes of Ayren Overwake, Totemist: BONE WARDENS
Ah, yes. The terror of the Ikrin Peaks. Bone Wardens seem to be animated by one of two phenomenon: Either a place of great tragedy naturally accumulates enough spiritual presence to give birth to one (or more), or a confused, enraged Avatar slips into a corpse and begins taking apart everything it can find. The latter tend to be more dangerous than the former, since they tend to be Avatars of things such as Gluttony, Avarice, or Hunger.
Wardens can incorporate any bone they find, whether whole or broken, into their structure. The magic that animates them also binds them together, as they don't seem to have any process for attaching new appendages to themselves; they just press and stick. They don't seem to pay much mind to flesh hanging off of the bones they assimilate, and it all rots off in the end.
Wardens are some of the fastest creatures I've ever encountered, outside of unruly Behemoths. They strike constantly, untiringly, and with the speed of a fired arrow. Overall, an increasingly powerful threat.]
