An animate was a creature artificially vested with life or intelligence. 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.
Oddly, not all creatures who were artificially infused with life were considered animates. For example, warforged, in spite of being the result of deliberate creation through magic, were considered humanoids. This was because warforged were sentient, unlike animates, who might have been intelligent but lacked any consciousness.
