A general outline of the class and what to expect from it goes here.

What you get when generating a new Golemologist character.

- Choose 1 Overdrive Ability out of a list of 2.
- Choose 1 Dazed Ability out of a list of 2.

Passive

[P] Golem: While a Golemologist is an adequate support units on their own, their true worth lies in their ability to command strange robot creatures called "Golems".
Golems act semi-independently from the Golemologist in battle; they have their own turn marker (they always start combat at the bottom of the initiative list), are effected by statuses, and even have their own HP Bars!

In order to act, a Golem requires Fuel - when their turn marker is up, they may either do nothing on their turn, or spend 1 Fuel and act normally. The only actions a Golem may perform are the abilities attached to its equipped Programs. Each Golem has two programs equipped at any given time, which may be any of the programs the Golemologist has learned. (They start with 6, and earn more as they level.) These programs may be swapped freely out of battle, or changed in-battle using abilities such as Program Install.

A Golem may stock any amount of fuel, though all fuel unspent dissipates when the battle ends.

A Golem has 40HP, and automatically recovers 10HP after each fight in which it was not destroyed. If your Golem is destroyed in battle, it can't be used again for the rest of the fight. As soon as you're not in combat, however, the Golemologist can spend 10MP to perform repairs, which restore it to max HP and gets it working just fine for the next fight.
Golems do not have their own MP pools - instead anytime a Program consumes MP, deduct it from the Golemologist's pool.
Golems don't have their own LP, but the Golemologist can spend their LP things affecting the Golem as well as themself.
Golems also do not equip gear, or benefit from the Golemologist's gear.
The only actions Golem can perform are Programs which have been installed into it. Each Golem has 2 Program slots with which to load in combat abilities, and the Golemologist starts knowing 6 different Programs. Which programs are installed can be changed anytime the Golemologist is not in combat. Programs otherwise are identical to normal Active Abilities.
