A Golem named Briquet is the boss of Galantyne Glades.


A Golem dubbed "The Brick and Mortar Slaughterer" was created to protect the city of Cantlin, only to eradicate its citizens when they began to argue and fight among themselves. It appears as the final boss of the first chapter, intent on destroying the newly rebuilt Cantlin.


Golems are beings from Jewish folklore, often portrayed as servants animated from clay that obediently carry out orders but often to warped or far too literal extents.
