In a hidden laboratory a figure was standing before a crystal tube, inside was a red liquid. In the murky red liquid something was floating.
"Soon you will be ready." The figure spoke in the empty room.
The figure inside the tube did not move.
"A fully sentient homunculus in a humanoid form." A lot of work had gone into it. "Finally one has survived." A hand is placed on the crystal. "You were given so many races, so many choices. Which one are you? What will you be like? Will have your former memories? Will you be ready or will you be like a child that has to learn everything?"
A long moment passes.
"I guess blood will tell, whoose blood is the strongest? You were given a lot of blood, maybe this is the answer to the question who has the purest or strongest blood."
True life cannot be created at the hands of man.
True life cannot be bred without adding a spark of life.
True life needs a soul.
Now a vessel was made, it still was not finished.
No matter what mortals thought, simply growing a body did not allow it to spark a soul.
Mortals could not create a true soul that could learn, that could grow.
A soul from some dead had it's own shape, it is why possesion destroyed bodies.
However, a soul from someone dead, could be granted a new body.
Amusingly there was a biased soul at hand.
Giving it the spark of rebirth, memories retained and inserted into the vessel the mortals had prepared.
Calling it an avatar was a bit much, however this one could be fun.
A soul was tied to the hommunculus.
The merge begann.
The project was growing stronger.
It was clearly magical. There was the both the touch of the divine and the touch of the arcane on it.
It was even visible to Sense Living Creature now.
It was clearly growing.
Soon it would rise.
"I am waiting, soon you will rise. Finally I will see what you are!"
