The Dungeon Protector is a Pre-Hardmode enemy found within the Dungeon. It runs towards the player, quickly accelerating as it moves to deal contact damage, though it will slow down if it needs to turn around.
The Skeletal version of a Knight in Shining Armour. Or at least it was shining, for it too has been tainted by dark forces after so long. These Dungeon Protectors were picked by the Dungeon Overseers and trained from unbirth to aid them in culling the mad Undead Hordes. Every Skeleton is born with a semi-conscious mind, but due to strange forces in the Dungeon, they eventually lose it upon dwelling there for too long. They are sent into a murderous, neverending rage. Seeking to quench the unquenchable, they turn on their brothers and fight a endless war of sub-factions within their Dungeon.
As a remedy and a last resort to protect the precious works of their skeletal overlord, the Dungeon Overseers chose skeletons with a will to resist the rage almost as great as theirs, and task them to strike back and cull their former comrades. It is a sad sight for them, but their job has to be done. In the end, after dozens of years of fighting their own kind, the mental stress has taken a toll on their Undead consciousness, and thus the greatest of wills are broken. Now, they roam the halls of the Dungeon, as insane as those they once fought against.
