CREATURE: HOMUNCULOUS

Alchemische_Vereinigung_aus_dem_Donum_Dei

One of the most famous usages of alchemy is the creation of a homunculus, which means “little man” in Latin. In general, a homunculus is an artificial human being. The most famous homunculus would be Frankenstein’s monster since he was a man-made sentient being that was not naturally born. One could argue that robots, androids, and clones are real life homunculus because they are sentient beings that are artificially made. I imagine an army of hundreds of thousands of homunculus marching through the lands, creating mayhem and destruction wherever they go. It is a chilling idea to consider and I look forward to experimenting with it further.
