Hello, Horatio! “Good kitty!”

2
The power to summon a minion which can fight and act on your behalf.
Used by Grace Cyanide, Created by lumiq.
(When activating this Effect, it is obvious that you are creating a minion in some way. You must actively and obviously be using A ball of yarn.)

Grace begins calling a cat and waving a ball of yarn. Obedience’s old kitty, Horatio, appears as a ghostly form covered in soot which trails behind him in wisps as he pads out from under a chair, in a closet, out of a trash can... Horatio was loyal to the end, and will "die" over and over again fighting for his girls, and fighting ferociously. Their bond is also strong enough to take the way Obedience could understand her cat in life a step further, so that they can understand each other clearly.

Horatio usually resides in Grace’s mindscape, along with the rest of the menagerie, unless Grace is in a place private enough that he can come out and play.

While Obedience's life force was tied to the tree, bitter as the bark and as slow to progress, Horatio was hidden from her; she was too unfamiliar and for awhile, taken to anger. But he never went far, watching over her out of even her sight... the most loyal of cats, our beloved Horatio.
