The Soul Puppet is a term for a soul temporarily kept from passing on by the Killing Flames blast shape invocation. Targets killed by the blast are raised as Soul Puppets of the creature's HD, alignment and size, as well as using the same ability scores. They have no feats, spells, skills or so forth as they are effectively mindless tools. Their Dexterity and Charisma raise by two points when they become Soul Puppets, since they have no Strength, Constitution or Intelligence scores. They possess a Deflection bonus to AC equal to their Charisma modifier. Their incorporeal touch attack deals Cold damage as default, but if the Warlock who killed them was using an Eldritch Essence on the Killing Flames Blast, their incorporeal touch deals that kind of damage instead. Their incorporeal touch attack deals an additional 1d6 damage for every 5 HD the creature possessed.
The example given here was created from a 1st-level Human Warrior.
Strategies and Tactics
Generally none. They are mindless and only follow the instructions given by their master, much like Skeletons.
Typical Physical Characteristics: Soul Puppets appear as shadowy version of how they did in life, with tortured expressions.
Alignment: As they were in life.
