Profile  
Dorfl is a golem on the Ankh-Morpork City Watch. He joined the Watch during the events of Feet of Clay, amid which he was set free by Captain Carrot, sustained considerable damage fighting the golem king, and was rebuilt to a considerable degree. He is later mentioned in Thud! as taking part in the Watch barricade between the dwarves and the trolls. He is the first truly free Golem, as Captain Carrot placed his own receipt of ownership in his chem, allowing Dorfl to 'own himself'.

Dorfl's rebuilding is a significant event, in terms of voice and personal belief system. His chem was destroyed in Feet of Clay, although he still managed to save Carrot from Meshugah because, as he put it, "WORDS IN THE HEART CAN NOT BE TAKEN". The repairs included being given a voice, but he was not issued a chem; instead, he began to "find his own words". Voices for golems had been considered blasphemous before Dorfl's argument with the Council of Churches, Temples, Sacred Groves and Big Ominous Rocks. He quickly became the Disc's first ceramic atheist, to the displeasure of at least one god, and has been issued an official chit to label him "alive" to avoid interference in this state of affairs. He will believe in any god whose existence can be proved by rational argument, although none has yet been successful. A thunderbolt to the head is deemed wholly unconvincing (in Dorfl's own words, "I Don't Call That Much Of An Argument"). Fellow watchman and Omnian Constable Visit continues to present Om's case before him, and unlike most people, Dorfl welcomes the continued debate.

Dorfl speaks 'With The Beginning Of Every Word Being Capitalized', as do all golems granted speech, and, like most golems, he is quite literal in his choice of words. Some of his lines take a considerable amount of inspiration from RoboCop, such as his description of his own duties: "To Serve The Public Trust, Protect The Innocent And Seriously Prod Buttock".

He is the apparent founder of the Golem Trust, although this is never conclusively stated. He is mentioned in Making Money as the first Freed Golem, which led to the Golem Trust.
