An android is a human-seeming creature created, not born. On Golarion, they rise from strange, alien forges that dot the ruins of Numeria.[1]


Androids, also called "tattooed children of the stars" by Numeria's Kellid tribes, are most prominently visually distinguishable from humans by the circuits carved into their skin. The average android is 6 feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds. Their eyes carry a metallic quality, and their bodies are made of artificial oils, polymers, and nanites that mimic blood, flesh, bone, organs, and other organic systems.[citation needed]

Unlike constructs, androids have souls which leave their complex, undecaying artificial bodies about once a century, their shells lying dormant until a new soul enters.[citation needed]


Androids carry no memories of their creation and have problems understanding emotions.[2]

Nanite Surge

Every 24 hours, an android can cause the nanites within her body to surge and greatly enhance her natural abilities for a very short period of time. When this happens, an android's circuitry-tattoos glow as brightly as a torch.[1]


Paizo has published two major articles on androids: "Ecology of the Android" in Fires of Creation, and "Androids" in People of the Stars.
