    Homunculus (noun): One of Alchemy's aliases on the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival Message Board.

    Example: "My favorite of Alchemy's homunculi would definitely be HannahRain."

    EDIT: I should specify that a homunculus is only the physical form of the alias. Some of my aliases, such as HannahRain and TomAz and PsychicFriend, started out as normal aliases... but by the power of belief, they were given physical forms... But they are not human! Don't be fooled. They are only homunculi.
