The last of the blood drains from the corpse’s throat into the small wooden bowl.  The man picks it up and retrieves a brush from the table.  Being careful not to spill any of the ichor, he slowly paints a complicated symbol on the cold stone floor.  When he finishes, he places an intricately-carved puppet into the circle and proceeds to draw the same symbol on the puppet’s head.

The man lights a candle and chants slowly, speaking words both ancient and forbidden.  There is a cracking noise, and the puppet begins to scream.
