an human like being that is created by alchemy. they are made by a mixture of magical herbs and blood or dead bodies. this mixture is put in a jar to grow. they were the original test tube babies. some homunculus are small. they can range from a few inches to 2 feet tall. there are bigger ones that are human sized. these are made more with dead bodies/parts than just blood. the big ones need more power/magic to live. the best way to get this is threw lighting or electricity. the famous example of this is the frankstien monster. in the Hellboy comics, Roger the Homunculus is brought to life with lighting and keep alive with power genertor/big battery in his chest.

A homunculus is 1st and for most forbidden so do not try it. Most people who try to resurrect any a human and/or create a homunculus lose parts of themselves in order to feed/make/give to said homunculus. They are made by putting certain elements together using alchemy. The maker of one is taken into waking unconsciousness where they learn all their is to learn about everything. When the awake from this state they remember everything that happened but they come back missing some part of them selfs arm/leg/intestine etc. The human they were trying to resurrect looks deformed beyond human knowledge and stays in that form for an unknown amount of time until they take the form of a human but alway have a heightened ability or a ability that is not human in anyway
Homunculus are alchemy's biggest taboo and is forbidden by all alchemist
