A gudgeon is any artificial or man-made monster. It may be comprised of human, animal, monster or inorganic parts, and frequently a combination of these. In some countries north of the Marrow, a type of gudgeon called bolbolgis are used as weapons of war. In the Haacobin Empire they are more likely to be found in hob-rousing pits, as substitutes for guard-dogs, and even as assassins.
In the Haacobin Empire the creation of gudgeons is illegal, though ironically ownership of one is not.
- Bolbogis: Powerful biological weapons of war, bred and used by nations north of the Marrow, such as the Turkmantine Empire.
- Jackstraws: One the more sophisticated types of gudgeons, resembling zombie-like scarecrows. They can be mentally controlled by a sciomane in a manner similar to witting.
- Rever-men: The most basic types of gudgeon, closely resembling zombies.
