Candle of the Iron Guardian

Wondrous item, uncommon

This short, thick candle is made from white wax and has iron filings embedded all through it. Lighting the candle takes an action and while burning, it emits a small shower of golden sparks. After burning for 4 hours, the candle is destroyed. You can snuff it out early for use later. Deduct the time it burned in increments of 1 minute from the candle’s total burn time.

Whenever you light the candle, an iron soldier with the statistics of animated armor appears in the nearest unoccupied space. The soldier is friendly to you and your companions, and it acts on your turn. You can use a bonus action to command how the soldier moves and what action it takes on its next turn, or to give it general orders, such as to attack your enemies. When the candle is destroyed, or when you snuff it out, the soldier disappears.
