If that space is otherwise occupied, it appears in the next closest space. Dressed in a shimmering suit of plate mail and armed with a Greataxe, the warrior otherwise appears as your exact duplicate. Its attack bonus, saving throws and the number of attacks it receives are identical to those of a fighter of the same level as you.

A successful hit inflicts 1d10+7 points of damage, and its Greataxe is considered a +3 weapon for purposes of damage reduction. The warrior’s armor class is 18 + your Intelligence modifier, and it possesses the same number of hit points as you at the time that the spell was cast. It functions as a construct for all other purposes. Furthermore, it cannot be dispelled, however it must remain within 70 ft. of the book, otherwise it dissipates. Once triggered, the warrior remains for 1/round  per caster level or until slain, whichever happens first.

The DC for a rogue attempting to detect the spell using her Search ability is 32.
