Amalgama were originally created as an ill-fated attempt to bring back the dead back to life by binding souls to a homunculus. The instability of the subject created a glorified zombie that killed its creator. However, later attempts saw the fusion and binding of several souls rather than just a single one, creating a stable, intelligent homunculus.
The downside of this approach is that it completely neglects the original intention, as Amalgama do not share personality nor memories of the souls used beyond fragments and shades. Instead, Amalgama represent a new being, with a new personality. A far cry from what was supposed to be restoring a dead lover to life.
