Powers and Abilities

Golem is a skilled detective – and a psychic. He can “see” a wide variety of things – supernatural creatures and events, the taint of illness (whether mundane or supernatural), and so on. He has a small gem chained to his wrist which glows when he concentrates on his powers, which is almost constantly.

When he needs supernatural insight (such as Occultist (Premonition) or using Awareness through Acuity, and possibly Pushing it) he will quickly enter a trance-like state. He then always experiences a vision in which he stands in a candle-lit room, and approaches a large gem within a sculpture.From this gem he is able to ascertain information to a greater degree.

Inspector Golem’s accuracy is a tremendous 87%.


Judiah Golem is a mystery. Pretty much all that is known is that he has extensive experience in the investigation of psychic and/or mystical phenomena. He seems to be with some sort of law-enforcement agency, perhaps at the Federal level, but this is murky.

When Dracula worked on performing the Ritual of Ascension to become like unto a god, Golem was one of the detectives working on the numerous murders that resulted from the Lord of Vampires’ preparations. He was the one who revealed the extent of the deaths—666 across the country—and that those were the result of an astral attack.

Golem also determined where the final ceremony was going to take place, found Dracula’s coffin and confirmed who was behind the carnage. He wasn’t present at the site of the final battle against Dracula, however.

Golem was contacted by Katinka (see her writeups.org entry) to form a new generation of vampire hunters, as many of the previous generation had been lost or had retired. The inspector apparently accepted, though what happened next remains unknown.


Golem dresses in FBI black, with dark sunglasses, a black raincoat and leather gloves. His chin is very strong, and his hair is slicked back. He’s always toying with the gem chained to his wrist.


Inspector Judiah Golem is a Spook with a capital S. He’s cold, uninvolved and eerie. He acts with a detached politeness, and often seems to be following invisible clues and omens only he can see – which is likely literally the case. He seems to believe in destiny.


“Bag the bodies, calm the people and tell them to lock their doors.”

“Four years ago. A contaminated needle. You didn’t know.”
