There once was a hebrew priest who saw his people were suffering. So one day he went to an alchemist to learn the secrets of life and learned that the reason we live is to seek truth. So he went home and made clay dolls and inscribed the hebrew word for truth on there forheads. They grew and grew untill they were giant. He named them golums and used them to free his people
In Jewish stories, brainless zombies were called golems. Jewish holy men called rabbis created them.
The golem was brought to life using the holy word "Emet" which means "truth". This was written on the golem's forehead, or on a clay tablet put under its tounge. Golems could not speak or disobey their master.
In some stories the golem grew bigger and bigger. To stop the golem from hurting its friends as well as its enemies, the rabbi turned it back into dust by rubbing out the "E" of Emet. This spells "Met", which means "death" in Hebrew, the jewish language.
