Solar Guard is a monster that able to find in The Solaris Temple related areas. It is a golem (internal name: "Holy Fire Elemental", while fire golem also has an internal name "fire elemental"). It has its own internal subtype "HolyFireElementalSolarisChampion". The 3D model is resemble to a humanoid but it does not have humanoid tags (for the dev internal use), but have construct, stone_construct, templar internal tags. Solar Guard is similar to Prayer Guard that can be found in The Chamber of Innocence.

Like Solar Elementals, the less powerful versions, they have fire resistance, the ability to cast yellow Fireballs as well as an instantaneous beam-attack which - upon impact - deals a great amount of AoE damage. Both attacks deal fire damage.

Due to their powerful nature they make a great target for Raise Spectre and are often supported with gems to further enhance their damage.
