Wax golems are constructs deliberately made to appear like a particular person. Composed of wax and imbued with magic, these golems can appear so lifelike that they are sometimes mistaken for the actual person it is sculpted like. Wax golems can be sculpted in the image of any person or creature the builder wishes and has the artistry to craft.[1]


The wax golem has a unique conditional sentience unlike any other construct. It has a small chance of gaining actual sentience and it might even believe itself a living person. The longer the golem remains functioning, the larger the chance it has at gaining this consciousness. If the wax golem was created in a particular person's image then it has the ability to easily disguise itself to resemble the person even more so and might even try to emulate that person's lifestyle. However, if the golem ever encounters the person it resembles, it will stop at nothing to murder and take their place. The wax golem is only prone to lose this sentience if it takes a large amount of heat or fire damage which melts away its features.[1]


The golem's body is crafted from a block of wax approximately 1,000 pounds in weight. Skill at sculpture is required to create the final form, which has a metal wire under frame then treated with wax mold and various spells are then cast to animate the golem.[1]
