Semblances are artificial living beings created using shaping and to carry out specific tasks. They "resemble" living things and vary in shapes and sizes, representing various species. Some semblances are dangerous, like the ones in the sky castles. Semblances are not usually self-aware; however, there are magic items that can cause them to be, such as Merva's shawl.
Renderings are similar to semblances. The difference is that semblances resemble living things, while renderings resemble nonliving things.
