Etymology[edit | edit source]
The Golem referenced in the Bestiary entry, and the visual appearance of the Guardian, is a type of automaton made from clay, and magically animated tablet or writing known as a Shem (שם).
Tradition states that on the Shem is written either one of the names of god, or the word "Emet" (Heb: אמת, "Truth") to bring it to life.
To deactivate the Golem, removing the letter Aleph (א) would leave the word "Met" (Heb: מת, "Death"), which would return it to inanimate clay.
