A Homunculus (ホムンクルス Homunkurusu, Latin for "little man", plural: "homunculi"; from the masculine diminutive form of homo, "man") is a representation of a small human being. Popularized in sixteenth century alchemy and nineteenth century fiction, it has historically referred to the creation of a miniature, fully formed human. The concept has roots in preformationism as well as earlier folklore and alchemic traditions.

Homunculi in the Len'en Project[edit]

In the Len'en Project, Taira no Fumikado was once a human who transferred their soul into a captured demon child that's used as a vessel, thus making them a homunculus.
