Golem was originally created by Carmilla to be a mindless guard of ancient ruins. When he was pulled into the time rift by Aeon, the rift gives him self awareness. He fought the champions to become human, and discover the meaning of his existence. He lost his self-awareness, after being returned to his own time frame. Golem's first appearance was in Rondo of Blood. He is based on golem-type monsters, like the Franken, from Castlevania I.

Golem's Castlevania Judgment storyline is as follows: His design seems to be a mixture of both the Golem and Frankenstein's Monster. He's revealed in his story mode that the Time rift the game takes place in has granted Golem a measure of sentience, which he uses in an attempt to make himself fully human. However, only in the rift can his sentience be maintained, and the rift would doom humanity if he remains extant; as such, Golem sacrifices his chance at humanity to help seal the rift and save mankind. After Golem mends the rift in time, he loses his sentience and becomes a mindless monster once more. Sadly, he was later destroyed by a vampire hunter.

Nope, the Lord of the Rings character was never in a fighting game... you're thinking of Smeagle. lol. This Golem is one of the original baddies from Castlevania. He was always an epic "boss" character in some of the earlier games... and has had an array of different looks. A lot different from the typical "stone man" horror archetype. On that note, I think Golem would fit into the Darkstalkers series rather well.

Castlevania Vs. Darkstalkers... now that's a cool idea.
