The Homunculus is a beast only encountered during Tower of Life. It was created from the essence of life in the tower. During the quest, three alchemists torture it and eventually the Homunculus gets set free. It creates monsters for the player to kill in Creature Creation.
- The term 'Homunculus' is Latin and essentially means 'little man', which is ironic as it is neither little, being larger than the player, nor a man. Homunculus is also a term in the actual proto-science of Alchemy, when people tried to make clones that couldn't feel pain.
