#15 – The Golemime

| November 15, 2011 | 0 Comments

In Estervale City, a place where science and magic live in peaceful coexistence, a serial killer is on the loose. This madman, this animal, is killing some of the city’s most treasured and vulnerable citizens.

Its mimes.

After the murder of several mimes in the city, the Estervale Police were forced to act. Their resident thaumaturge, Thaddeus Zoltaire, has been charged with making a golem mime, one that can pass on the street, but is impervious to even the most committed attempts at murder. After researching the proper rites and procedures, Zoltaire created a clay man and breathed life into it.

In the process of creating the golemime, however, Zoltaire did his job a little too well. He wanted his creation to be both mime and policeman, and used that intention when he composed the Words that animated the clay. Therefore, the golemime is trying to be the best ┬ámime and policeman it can, developing traits of both with amazing skill. Within a week, it’s entertaining small children one minute, tackling suspects to the ground the next.

Zoltaire isn’t sure what exactly he’s created, but the golemime is proving to be vital to finding the vicious murderer that runs loose in the city.

P.S. If anyone who can actually draw wants to draw this, it would make me indescribably happy. Just putting that out there…
