Monster

Yes, I’m implying someone at Hogwarts built and animated a monster built from corpses.

10 points from Slytherin.

Frankenstein’s Monster is pretty much the direct inspiration for flesh golems. But something that has always bugged me about flesh golems is that they’re large-sized monsters. Large sized. As in twice the height, width, and girth as your average dude. Yes, Frankenstein’s Monster in the classic Universal movie was pretty big. But he wasn’t rocking the 10 foot mark. This was even a joke in Young Frankenstein where they justify the size as being easier to work with: a larger whole means small things like veins and ligaments are easier to see.

But who are evil wizards building all these large flesh golems from? Is there some graveyard filled with basketball players and gigantism sufferers that has really poor security?
