This category is for creatures artificially vested with life or intelligence, as described on p. 280 of the 4th-edition Monster Manual. Animates were generally under the control of their creators and were devoid of most qualities typical of life, such as breathing, consumption, or sleep. Animates differed little by planar origin and none arose naturally under normal circumstances.
