Homunculus


The homonculus is a small bandy-legged creature, with disproportionately long limbs and batlike wings. These are tipped at the joint with small sharp claws. The creature has a greasy clay-like skin, and enormous opalescent eyes. It will consent to become the familiar of any character who makes it an offer. However, it has one requirement - it requires human blood for feeding, and will drain 1/2 d6 BOD per day. In return it will scout for its master, give advice (usually bad) and supply him or her with Mana for spell casting or healing (BOD), if it can find a victim to drain blood off safely. The creature has other bad habits too. It is a practical joker of a malevolent kind, although it will not offend its master. It has a decidedly nasty disposition and will often urge unpleasant actions on its master in its high whispery voice. If it gets the chance, it will attack and dispose of pets, and any other small animals that it can deal to without exposing itself to danger. It does however, know quite a bit about magic use and magic users, so could be a useful companion, if you could tolerate its company.
