Brief SynopsisEditThe Godcraft were hollow puppets created by the Magi and were roughly the size of a normal man run by the magic that has infused them granting them great strength and intelligence. Only four of these are known to have been made around the time of the Gods. They were created and used to put an end to Malpercio as his existence was sensed by the Children of the Earth and upon seeing the massacre that had been wrought; unleashed them upon Malpercio and put an end to them. During the battle Syrma and Dubhe were destroyed and Guillo buried but was presumed to have been destroyed as well. Seginus was never used because it couldn't properly fuse to the Sorcerer's power and remained where it was created.
Unlike paramachina which are run by technology, a godcraft is capable of independent thought and even human emotions. All four were infused with great amounts of magic by their respective controllers and as such had power befitting their name for they could kill creatures of god caliber with a single and deadly precise strike of powerful magic. While Seginus was unusable and Syrma and Dubhe were each infused by one sorcerer, Guillo was infused with two different sets of energy, one from a sorceress and the other from a sorcerer, known as the Magi. This is why Guillo is so unique and speaks with two voices in unison.
