Proposed Canon

First appearance: Hvs.tCF 148

Makaleka is a doll (specifically a hide golem) created by Bill; technically she has no name of her own, but Jed calls her "Makaleka", and Bill calls her "Fashion Maggie".

Bill created her using fragments of his ownErf-b3-p179Same-site.PNG and Maggie's g-strings,Erf-b3-p148Same-site.PNG which initially gave the doll and Maggie a shared tactile sense. Over time, Maggie is able to refine the connection between herself and Makaleka, granting herself the ability to hear what Makaleka hears, and a sense of light and dark; Bunny refines this even further, granting improved vision.Erf-b3-p178Same-site.PNG

Bunny utilizes Makaleka as an intermediary to negotiate with Maggie, granting Maggie "praxy" (gross motor control) and "dextry" (motor control fine enough for writing) over Makaleka.Erf-b3-p179Same-site.PNG

Makaleka is a "special" doll, which "thinks that it thinks," but only while the Dollamancer lives.Erf-b3-p179Same-site.PNG She is not the first such unit created by Bill; approximately 7000 turns ago, Bill had created a similar doll with Bunny. Revealing this to the Great Minds led to Bunny being declared Bad.

Maggie is able to use a residual drop of juice in the strings that bind her to Makaleka to send the command word "call". Jed receives this, and responds,Erf-b3-p179Same-site.PNG with the use of stolen juice.Erf-b3-p299Same-site.PNG

Under Maggie's control, Makaleka unlocks a door, issues orders to at least 5 non-speaking Transylvitian units (a moll, a doll, and 3 bats), and unlocks a cell.Erf-b3-p191Same-site.PNG

Makaleka commands two other Transylvitan dolls to execute Roger Victor Clarence while Roger is linked with Parson, but not before Roger is able to complete the casting of the Dismiss Perfect Warlord scroll.Erf-b3-p295Same-site.PNG

Speculation

It's believed that Maxwell created similar dolls/golems (ones which think that they think, but only while Maxwell lives) in Haffaton, many thousandturns ago.Erf-b3-p279Same-site.PNG

It's unclear whether Makaleka ordered the guardian dolls to kill Roger on Jed's behalf, or on her own.
