Dangerous Magic-Ancient Enemies"A homunculus is more than just an artificial creature," Sebastian told Tim and Pip. "It is a living human, yet one that has no soul." He fell silent."What you're saying," Pip said, after a pause, "is that this thing, if it has no soul, has no mind of it's own.""Exactly so!" Sebastian came back. "This creature must be commanded by its maker.""I don't see the problem," Tim declared. "It might be unnatural, but..."Sebastian sighed. "You see nothing wrong in an evil man being able to create a creature-or many creatures-that will do his every bidding?"Tim held his hand up. "This is way too sci-fi. Any minute now," he added, "we'll have some Hollywood hulk charging over the hill with half his computer-generated skull split open to show the circuit boards inside, liquidizing anyone that gets in his way.""You may be flippant, Tim" Sebastian said, "but de Loudeac has, throughout the centuries, not given up on his quest.""What do you mean?" Pip said. No sooner had she spoken than she wondered if she wanted to hear the answer."I mean," Sebastian said, "that de Loudeac is here, now, pursuing this end."
