Metal constructs whose bodies have been given life by arcanists who have trapped a human spirit inside. These constructs are bound by the spells and magics placed within their bodies. Some are allowed only a few functions, while others behave just as normal humans would. The ability of a spirit to function within a construct is related to the construct’s size. Too big of a body cannot be supported by a spirit. Though difficult to destroy, if a garidan’s spell markings are destroyed, or the rune stone their spirit is bound by, the spirit is released. Many archanists do their best to hide the markings deep within their constructs to protect them. Some have tried to bind more than one spirit into a garidan, usually resulting in something bad happening.
