Holy story line...

You can drop hints in songs and stories of how the Lion of Valoria will always protect the city.

Then when they least expect it, the Lion can leap off its pedestal and attack the invaders! You get to help the PC's when they are about to be overwhelmed and the story gets a huge boon.

Alternatively, seedier elements of the population could be turning up dead with strange claw marks... Perhaps the Lion is championing the meek and protecting the citizenry whilst everyone is asleep. Can the PC's figure out hpw the bad guys are dying? What do they do once they know?

The statue is gorgeous, the story potential even more awesome!
