When at last the two had arrived at was once the location of her homeland, seeing the remnants of her people filled Coltia with overwhelming alienation and sorrow.

A golem is an artifical human figure in Jewish folklore, created from inanimate materials and given life by the enchanted word Emet ("truth" in Hebrew) written on its forehead. Golems are commonly made from mud or clay, but fantasy writers have expanded this to include many other materials such as metal, wood and stone. The word comes from the Hebrew word gelem which means "raw material".
