The Golem is an entity created from "dust", clay or mud. Its purpose is to serve man, but legends say that if the circumstances around the Golem is not kept under control, the Golem could turn on their creator and the world in general. To animate the Golem, the sage has to give it a Holy Name, either by inscribing it on its forehead or writing it on a piece of paper that is inserted through its mouth and stored inside its body.
