A Homunculus (Latin for "Little Human") is an artificial human created by alchemy. They are usually seen as enemies and villains. They can be created if you try to resurrect a dead human, which will not work. They can be brought back as a homunculus with the humans likeness. In the anime series, the homunculu are named after the seven deadly sins from the bible. Greed, Wrath, Sloth, Pride, Envy, Lust, Sloth, and Gluttony.
