"Me want to live!"
— Golem in Castlevania Judgment

Golem (ゴーレム Gōremu?) is a playable character in Castlevania Judgment. His design seems to be a mixture of both the Golem and Frankenstein's Monster. He's revealed in his story mode that the Time rift the game takes place in has granted Golem a measure of sentience, which he uses in an attempt to make himself fully human. However, only in the rift can his sentience be maintained, and the rift would doom humanity if he remains extant; as such, Golem sacrifices his chance at humanity to help seal the rift and save mankind. After Golem mends the rift in time, he loses his sentience and becomes a mindless monster once more. Sadly, he was later destroyed by a vampire hunter. His theme is "Tower of Dolls", a song from Castlevania Chronicles.

Official backgroundEdit

The original Judgment press release profile was: An artificial human being created by Carmilla. Perhaps due to a mutation, he awakens to self-awareness. Golem seeks the meaning of being alive: An artificial humanoid created by Carmilla. The Golem's self-awareness has been awakened within the time gap, and it wants to know the meaning of its existence.

Golem Ending
Narrator: Thus the rift in time was mended, and all were returned to their respective eras.

As Aeon had warned, Golem's newfound self-awareness could not persist outside that special dimension.

After his return, he was destroyed by some unknown hunter, still oblivious to all he had experienced in the rift.

He was created to oppose man, but for a brief moment his soul awakened.

Had he the words, he would only have wanted to express the joy of thinking and acting for oneself... the joy of being alive.
