Familiar Spirit

You have a special relationship with a spirit (animal spirit, affiliated spirit such as War, or similar), one who freely and without compunction is your companion. This is a friendly alliance, not servitude; while the spirit will assist you, it will not risk its existence for you - it will not enter combat, will flee if attacked, and will not run errands or teach Gifts. Any attempt to use the spirit for anything but friendship or a battery, such as spying, is treated as use of an Ally and requires a Familiar Spirit vs 6 roll; making such requests too frequently, or botching, risk alienating the spirit.
