My entry for the RIFT Colossus contest. A re imagining of my Lighthouse Keeper.
An enormous sentinel, originally built purely for defensive purposes before it gained sentience and started to walk the lands.
In its original form it was tasked with guarding an empire from invaders. The "lighthouse" structure on its peak beams out deadly rays of scorching light that obliterate everything in its sight, making it a deadly warrior.
Now it uses its power at random, a low hum preceding the death bringing light of destruction.
