Big Fish, Little Pond
Homunculi are miniature humans created through alchemy. They cannot survive exposure to air and so are usually kept inside glass jars or flasks. Their role is similar to that of Bob in the novels: to advise their creator on matters of magic. There are rumors of larger homunculus that can live outside of jars, but these are unproven.

Created by the builder of the Tower, a Spanish Tzaddikim who left for the New World after King Ferdinand and Queen Isabel expelled all Jews and Muslims from Spain, Lexicon is an artificial humanoid creature that functions as a living lore library. He is cranky and generally disrespectful of everybody, and spends most of his time sitting under the tiny Bonsai tree in his jar watching the old Radiation King television set that manages to work in the Tower. He is partial to soap operas, and bemoans the inability of the tenants of the Tower to get cable, and the Soap network.
