The warforged were made as the ideal soldiers to serve in the devastating Last War of Eberron. Although they are constructs, they have much in common with living creatures, including emotions and social bonds, and perhaps even souls. Warforged in the Forgotten Realms may come from other origins, such as the laboratory of an ambitious artificer.
