Bestiary entry

Page 1: Observations

Being a magickal construct of brick and mortar. The furnace in its chest, which powers its locomotion, is fed by its own clay, meaning that is must periodically restore itself in much the same way as we require sustenance to live. Though its inexpensive materials and ordinary workmanship make for an inelegant weapon of war, its aptitude for repair makes it the ideal automaton for a range of other tasks, both in the laboratory and in the field. It is a sign of the low cost of fabrication that once the creation received orders, they cannot be revoked, hence the sight of golems from a defeated and forgotten army roaming the land in search of an enemy long since dead and gone.

Etymology

In Jewish and medieval folklore, a golem is an animated anthropomorphic being, magically created from inanimate matter. The word was used to mean an amorphous, unformed material (usually out of stone and clay) in Psalms and medieval writing. Adam, the first man created by God in the Holy Bible, was a golem since he was created from dust and sand. Having a golem servant was seen as the ultimate symbol of wisdom and holiness, with stories of prominent Rabbis owning golems throughout the middle ages. In modern times, the word golem, sometimes pronounced goilem in Yiddish, has come to mean one who is slow, clumsy, and generally dimwitted.
