#2512: Holy Word

As we established earlier (much, much earlier in the whole series), Golem is animated by the word of God stored in his head. It's called a "chem", which I got from Discworld (although some of the readers assured me it's also been used elsewhere). I mean, if I'm going to steal from literary sources, may as well steal from the best. Discworld rocks.

As long time readers will recall, the Devil is, in fact, Sindra, one-time fallen angel. Sindra is most certain a woman. I don't recall her ever showing up when Golem was around, but considering there's 800 years we haven't seen, I'm sure they encountered each other at least once.

That said, right now I have no plans to actually show her in the current series. Referencing her was enough to scratch that itch for now.
