Golems

Golems are men made from clay, although the term men should be used loosely as they technically are neither one sex nor the other. Created by the priests of Ur millennia ago to carry out manual tasks they were programmed via the Chem (a piece of paper inscribed with instructions) placed inside their heads. Many ended up in Ankh Morpork where they were bought and sold being put to work in the many factories and workshops in the city. It is not in Golem's nature to rebel however one Golem did end up free, the receipt from his sale having been placed in his head. Once in paid employment he saved his wages and bought another Golem who he freed. Now there are many free Golems and The Golem Trust which buys Golems and frees them before finding them paid employment.

Golems are stronger even than Trolls and are not easily destroyed.
