Constructs are the living creations of Mad Science. They fall into several general categories, usefully created, analyzed, and described by Karrion of the GG Yahoo Group:

Type I: Revives[edit | edit source]

Olga, sort of

Dead, brought back to life.

I guess we can't punish Victor for bringing Sparky back from the dead.

Examples: Tarvek Sturmvoraus; Agatha Heterodyne; The shell of Madame Olga may qualify; Zulenna Luzhakna may or may not have been successfully revived. Rudolf Selnikov's head has been revived, which seems to place him in this category, but perhaps his life support "jar" makes him a 'Borg - Type XI. If he ever gets that new body he wants , presumably he will become a Patch job - Type II.

Type II: Patch jobs[edit | edit source]

Baron Klaus

Dead, repaired with spare parts, brought back to life.

They'll fix you. They fix everything.

Examples: Baron Klaus Wulfenbach once the three Wulfenbach brothers were caught in a Laboratory accident the family downsized from there. Tweedle is a more minor example, finally acquiring a replacement biological hand for his original poisoned appendage after cycling through a couple of mechanical substitutes.

Type III: Frankensteins[edit | edit source]

Built from parts of dead, brought to life.


Examples: Punch and Judy - not confirmed in the comic, but in the novel though they are here termed Patchjobs.

Type IV: Freaks[edit | edit source]


Never dead, parts surgically added.

Smithers, fetch some surgical tools... and some ether...

Examples: Boris Dolokhov, Possibly Ariadne Steelgarter.

Type V: Hydes[edit | edit source]

Altered by some process:

Here, drink this.

Examples: the Jägerkin, The late lamented Bunstable/Haggard.

Type VI: Anthros[edit | edit source]


Animal forms with human level (not that THAT means much) brain power.

...that is the Law. Are we not Men?

Examples: Krosp I. The Swartzwalders. The Knights of the Hunt.

Type VII: Scratchbuilds[edit | edit source]

New, never-before-seen forms of life.

Examples: Zoing (possibly). most of the monsters of Sturmhalten's sewers

Type VIII: Sideshows[edit | edit source]

Not much different. Extra large or small; minor alterations such as added horns or abnormal color, i.e. unicorns or pink cats.

One of us! Gooble gobble, gooble gobble! One of us! One of us!

Examples: Mimmoths, Lapinemoths, the Monster Horse Beastie, Doctor Galliard Prunestoggle, Susa, Gritha Pantagruel

Type IX: Borgs[edit | edit source]

Wasp eater

Clank-construct combos.

We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better...stronger...faster.

Examples: Wasp eaters, Snapper Boikov, Radioheads, That guy behind Agatha

Type X: Hybrids[edit | edit source]

Construct falling into more than one basic category, i.e. type IV/VI.

Oh my goodness! They've come back! As ninja pirate robot monkey clown bandito werewolf zombies!

Examples: Klaus may instead be a type II/III; the wasp weasels may be VIII/IX.

Type XI: WTF[edit | edit source]

Catchall for every thing that DOESN'T fit any category.

What the hell are you?

Examples: Not known, but Von Pinn, the Hoomhoffers, the Lackya, and the slaver wasps are not conclusively categorized.

Type XII: My mistake...[edit | edit source]

For the rare case of being commonly mistaken for constructs, but aren't. Aliens/extra-dimensional beings would qualify as well as when mother nature shows her sense of humor to fleeing townsfolk who have heard of, say, t-rex dinosaurs who were just brought in thru a time portal. Of course, some of these categories are subject to speculation and the conflicting classification systems of their creators. Keep an eye on Category:Constructs and the inhabitants thereof.
