Homunculus chathead

The Homunculus is a creature only encountered during the Tower of Life quest. It was created from the essence of life in the tower. During the quest, three alchemists torture it and eventually the Homunculus is set free. It creates monsters for the player to kill in Creature Creation. This is also one of the NPCs that can be contacted with the NPC contact spell in the Lunar magic book.


  • The term 'Homunculus' is Latin and essentially means 'little man', which is ironic as it is neither little, being larger than the player, nor a man. Homunculus is also a term in the actual proto-science of Alchemy, when people tried to make clones that couldn't feel pain.
