Efficient Winding (Ex)

A clockwork soldier can function for a number of days equal to 2 x its CR every time it is wound.

Proficient (Ex)

A clockwork soldier is proficient with basic and advanced melee weapons, small arms, longarms, heavy weapons, and grenades.

Standby (Ex)

A clockwork soldier can place itself on standby as a standard action. While on standby, a clockwork soldier cannot move or take any actions. It remains aware of its surroundings but takes a -4 penalty on Perception checks.

Time spent on standby does not count against the soldier’s wind-down duration. A clockwork soldier can exit standby as a swift action—if it does so to initiate combat, it gains a +4 racial bonus on its Initiative check.

Swift Reactions (Ex)

Clockwork constructs gain Lightning Reflexes and Improved Initiative as bonus feats.


Environment any
Organization solitary, pair, trio, troop (3-8), or company (9-12)

The clockwork soldier is a mechanical mercenary that fights to the death for its creator. With the ability to wield most weapons with full proficiency, clockwork soldiers are versatile and wholly unpredictable foes. Clockwork soldiers are among the most efficient constructs of their kind. They are ideal for sentry and guard duty. Clockwork soldiers have the same basic shape as a human. They are 6 feet tall and weigh 500 pounds.
