Pancake Golem[edit]

A golem that was created out of pancakes by a *very* hungry Golemancer.

Physical Description[edit]

A golem made out of thousands of pancakes of different sizes, cooking times, and shapes. It can look lumpy, skinny, fat, short, however the golem was created and with what sides if any. Its eyes are made out of either fruits or candies usually found with pancakes. It's very squishy and soft when hugged. They are known to smell like fresh pancakes at all times and have never been found to rot even after years since their creation.


When the first Golemancer created the first Pancake Golem, it was an old man who wanted to give his daughter a dancing breakfast for her birthday. When the Pancake Golem was created, it decided to want to create food for its creator and his daughter. It became popular by walking around town and talking to others and giving pieces of itself to patrons who asked. Pancake Golems suddenly became very popular and sought out by even the newest Golemancers. They don't seem to last very long as they are created just to be eaten. They are now usually created for Inns or various restaurants to use their body or to teach them to cook. They are usually very good cooks and enjoy their professions.


Since there are not many that haven't been eaten, when one Pancake Golem sees another, they are usually very friendly and excitable. They are known to be very loving and accepted to others, but their personality and mannerisms are naturally from their creators and how they were treated. They can sometimes be very ignorant of social cues and are sometimes too loving towards other people and things, although there are exceptions to this rule.

Pancake Golem Names[edit]

Since they are made out of pancakes and various other ingredients, their names are based off what other things they were created out of. There are no discernible factors on what makes them female or male but many have more feminine names and more masculine names depending on what they were created with.

Names: Chocolate, Banana, Syrup (various types; e.i: Blueberry Syrup, Strawberry Syrup), Peanut Butter, Butter, Blueberry, Strawberry, Sprinkles, Whipped Cream, Honey, Kiwi
