concentration, 1 hour/mana

As two actions, you mix certain chemicals with blood, clay, ash, and mandrake root, to create a companion known as a homunculus which appears in an unoccupied space that you can see within 10 meters. The homunculus assumes the homunculus companion form, using 2 resources. The creature has no stamina dice, but you can infuse it with stamina dice by expending mana, up to your mana limit. For each mana or 2 psi you expend, the construct gains 1 mana or 2 stamina dice. The homunculus is friendly to you and your companions, and it disappears when it drops to 0 health or when the spell ends.

When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can mentally command any creature you created with this spell if the creature is within 50 meters of you (if you control multiple creatures, you can command any or all of them at the same time, issuing the same command to each one). You decide what actions the creature will take and where it will move during its next turn, or you can issue a general command, such as to guard a particular chamber or corridor. If you issue no commands, the creature only defends itself against hostile creatures. Once given an order, the creature continues to follow it until its task is complete.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can use an additional resource for each additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 2 additional mana to call forth another homunculus.
