Hair from a living creature of Intelligence 5 or greater must be used to enact create poppet. The poppet then serves its creator faithfully as long as it exists. Poppets are capable of independently performing simple tasks, and as a result make adequate household or laboratory servants.

They are not naturally aggressive, and ignore orders to attack with one exception. If ordered to do so, a poppet will unerringly stalk the creature whose hair it was made from, and attempt to kill it. If the poppet succeeds in killing its target, it immediately falls to the ground, lifeless. A careful caster can replace the hair and reanimate the poppet with no experience cost. A spellcaster can animate multiple poppets, but can never control more hit dice of poppets than she has levels. If this number is exceeded, all poppets currently animated pass out of the caster’s control and run wild.

XP cost: 500 XP.
