Waxwork creatures are constructs made of waxwork and animated either by a spirit housed into them by their creator, or spontaneously by magic or a spirit seeking corporeal form. In the former case, they are controllable by their creator, while in the latter case they are not. Some waxwork creatures burn with a fire that never consumes their body; these are known as waxwork candles. Waxwork creatures shaped like intelligent ones might develop a mind of their own.
