The Automaton are the creations of the Cyclops.
Built of Brass and Iron and sometimes rarer materials. These wonders of Cyclopian Technology were often-times mimics of living creatures. Man, Dog, Serpent, and given certain programmed tasks that they carry out with unrelenting force.
Automatons were almost never made in the form of Cyclops, that being saved for the more warlike Juggernauts. Exceptions include the Six-Armed Hexadonica and a couple of the Cyclops ‘Statues’ in The Automaton Garden of the Isle of Gorgos
