This mechanical being is half-a-person, as if it had been cut in two from the middle of its head straight downward.

This leaves it with one ear, one eye, half of a nose and of a mouth, one arm and one leg.

Split golems are the answer to every busy workload.

They are capable of splitting in half. Split golems are modeled after mofolk and may well have been created by them. Split golems manage their workload by dividing in two when needed. The most popular resides in the Valley of Clockwork Animals known as Mr. Split.

Woodwork. Split golems are formed from wood. Their feet are beech, their arms and legs are limbs of ash, their body is pine and their heart is oak. Split golem heads are mostly chestnut, although their hair is curly maple, their eyes mahogany and their teeth hickory. A split golem’s strong voice is powered by birch bark. Their hands are made of the rubber tree, giving them some dexterity. A split golem’s conjoined nature makes it vulnerable to being chopped in half, and wily opponents aim for the seam. Split golems hop as well as they run.

Half-Spoken. Split golems, when divided, speak in half-phrases, with every other syllable, making them very difficult to understand.
