Bluedo detests violence (it's very distasteful), however, after being attacked by effectively an entire army from the abyss over his contracts career, he discovered that perhaps a little self-defense might be useful. When he went to the mystic to collect his gift, he was told that this particular little trick was quite popular among his ancestors. His curiosity about who exactly these ancestors were grows day by day.

Your target rises as an Animate being. The raised creature is totally mindless, with no memory of its past life or hint of its old personality. They cannot communicate. They will follow any command you speak.
