Awakened Golem

Awakened Golems originate from the island of Vadalani and the nation of Avalie.

Awakened Golems are Golems that have become sentient due to the strange energies the island of Vadalani seems to possess. It can either be a natural phenomenon or it can be manually instigated by the most Prestigious of Vada spellcasters though the actual methods are rather obscure and still a greatest mystery to the greatest of minds.

Awakened Golems are very unique in the fact that they seem to be half alive. They need to eat, sleep and breathe and their stony flesh seems to be able to restore itself the way a human would naturally heal injuries.

Physical Description: Awakened Golems are nearly indistinguishable from their monstrous cousins. They are always carved from stone, and have distinctive monstrous features.

Society: Awakened Golems are often solitary creatures, unless they form bonds with other humanoids, They are obsessed with finding a means to procreate and identify themselves as sapient beings, like other species, but are acutely aware of how unlike them they are. Most Awakened Golems will cluster around the eldest awakened Golem, or the person who awakened them. Awakened Golems are frequently territorial, a remnant of their specific-purpose origins.

Sometimes Awakened golems decide to go to the city of Altasia and become protectors of the city and the Vada people most finding satisfaction in protecting their creator race.

Relations: Awakened Golems are often mistrustful of other races, assuming they seek to enslave, subvert, or harm them. This semi-xenophobic attitude often works against them, since members of other races often assume that Awakened Golems are monsters, who should be attacked or destroyed. Occasionally, these differences can be overcome, particularly if the social grouping of Golems has a wise or experienced leader, in which case a clan of Golems can make a steadfast and incredibly powerful ally. They tend to be a little more trusting of the Vadalani than any other race however, often calling them the creators or awakeners. It's not uncommon for a Awakened Golem to willingly serve a family of Vada descendant of the one who originally created them and awakened them.

Aligment and religion: Awakened Golems are often neutral. They have no motivations or governing factors beyond those that they make for themselves. Few find themselves under the sway of divine entities, though some will take on the role of protectors of churches or temples for faiths which support the balance of living things, or faiths with clergy willing to help them.
