Homonculi are a type of artificial Others, to be sent en masse to swarm and overwhelm an opponent.
Uniform in appearance, half the size of an ordinary person, pale, hairless and spindly, with fingers like a spider’s legs and no noses or ears to speak of. Their mouths are wide and crowded with teeth, with their teeth and fingernails looking like they’d been collected from people who’d lost theirs. Diseased, cavity-ridden to the point you could see through some, torn, splintered, crusted with plaque or fungus, the bulk of them were so featureless that it almost suggested there was nothing to them but tooth and nail.
The homonculi are weak but they come in great numbers. While anyone could presumably fight off a few of them their teeth with completely infect or cripple anyone bitten or cut.
