I'm loyal to you Master, I 'm your slave, I didn't betray you! Oh no, don't! Don't kill me! Let me live, please! Punish me - torture me - but let me live!
- from Dracula (1931)
Benny is able to turn what would have been a wasted pile of meat into a useful minion. If he has access to a human being who is on the brink of death, he may perform a bloodletting ritual in which he opens the vein on his wrist and forces the victim to drink for roughly 8 seconds.
If the ritual is completed successfully, the soul and mind will die, but the body will remain animate, an unwitting member of a soon-to-be vast criminal empire. It will remain under Benny's control until it is killed again, and is capable of obeying commands and relaying information back to Benny, though it cannot perform complex tasks or entertain anything resembling a thought.
Roll your Mind, difficulty 6, perform a 3 round ritual, and suffer a 1 point injury. If you succeed, and if your ritual is not interrupted, you transform a dying human (beyond wound level 7) into a mindless thrall. You may have [[maximum-minions]] active at a time. The thrall lasts until destroyed, and has the intelligence of a dog, but can communicate back to you.
Your thralls have the following stats:
Health levels: 5
Attack dice: 6
Damage bonus: 3
Their attack does (successes to hit + extra damage dice) damage.
