Perfect Homunculus[edit]

The Perfect homunculus is a construct created from alchemy. It is the pinnacle of all life forms emerging from a core of concentrated magic.


Perfect homunculi correspond to the values of all those whose souls have been compressed at their core, because they already have a fixed age in their creation process, most of them did not have a childhood to develop an independent personality.

Physical Description[edit]

A Perfect Homunculus appears to be identical to a human, but its body is stronger and less fragile. Even if it is modeled after a specific person, the homunculus always appears more attractive. Some argue that this is evidence of their perfection, as their creation is "the final state of evolution", their heart is a pulsing red crystal; a philosopher's stone and some homunculi also have wings.

No one really knows how a Perfect Homunculus is created, but there are reports that in battles where thousands upon thousands lost their lives the creation of such a homunculi could be confirmed.


Perfect Homunculi find it difficult to form relationships


Perfect homunculi do not have lands of their own, for they are the unique products of compressed soul energy.


Perfect homunculi believe in science and only become religious when they can positively establish the existence of gods.


Perfect Homunculi speak the language of there creator and common.


Perfect homunculi are usually named after the place where they were found. Should a Perfect Homunculus give itself a name, it will likely be a combination of the names of the individuals compressed into its core.
