Homunculi are sapient artificial lifeforms created using Flesh Magic.
A homunculus is a person created through a magical process. In the first stage, genes, either from a preexisting life form or created from scratch, are placed inside a single cell contained inside an artificial womb. In the second stage, the creature is allowed to develop inside the womb for months. At the third stage, the womb breaks open, revealing a homunculus. The process of creating a homunculus is often stabilized through regular application of magical modifications.
