Overview

There are a number of beings which have been categorised by the Quincunx Corporation under the description of Golems, such beings have included constructed entities of flesh (akin to the stories of Frankenstein's monster), clockwork automatons and even robots being produced by various groups in the modern age.

According to the definition followed by Quincunx, a being is referred to as a Golem if it has been constructed and has been artificially given life through the connection to a spectral entity. Quincunx does not consider an animated construct to be a Golem if it operates based on a limited programming set, or if it houses a cognitive pattern uploaded from a living host.

Historical Data

There are number of incidents archived in various Quincunx papers regarding encounters with beings clearly not born, but created through means either mystical or technological. The most commonly cited references involve the Golem of Prague and a number of incidents that claim to be true origins for the the Frankenstein story written by Mary Shelley (who herself is claimed to have been of paranormal descent according to certain theorists).

Elemental Resonance: Various

The traditional origins of the Golem myth provide the creature with a body of clay, and according to many this would clearly give the creature type an element of "Earth". Contrary opinions state that the presence of a spectral entity as an animating force, would give Golems an elemental affiliation of "Air". Other state that Golems require a spark of life, and this is traditionally associated with the "Wood" element. A number of lesser theories present links to the remaining elements.

Since the Quincunx define a range of creatures under the descriptive term "Golem", there are actually a number of different elemental energies present in the beings defined by the category.
