We have found only a few objects similar to this in all of our time here, that I am aware of. Whether it belonged to a race of creature or automatons that came before us, or they still exist somewhere, we do not know.
The metallic fragments of this piece appear similar in design to the walls that surround us here in Oribos, yet we have never seen something like this moving around in the city.
I will add it to the cache of relics related to these mysteries. Take a suitable reward with you.
