I think we should make a difference between proper mostali and the clay mostali that we are likely to see. The true mostali are a piece of living rock or metal, without a detectable scrap of Spirit within it, yet softened somehow by life. They can move their squat form with remarkable grace. They are likely perfect of form, since they were made by the Maker.

The clay mostali are likely misshapen, short, and often ugly. But they were not made by the Maker.
