Shardik is one of the twelve guardians of Beams that hold up the Dark Tower. It is a cyborg bear that stands over forty feet tall and as a satellite-like contraption on it's head(known as a thinking cap by Roland). Shardik was made by North Central Positronics the mysterious company which was apart of The Imperium thousands of years prior to the beginning of the events of The Dark Tower Series. Shardik was known as Mir by tribals who once lived in his woods, which in their language meant: the world beneath the world. The longevity of Shardik's life is most likely due to nuclear cells running inside its body. Thousands of years after being made to watch over the beam it has slowly started to die.
