You gain the service of an attendant, a spirit that takes on a humanoid form you choose. Appearing in an unoccupied space within range, the attendant has the statistics of the chosen form, though it is a celestial, fey, or fiend (your choice) instead of a humanoid.

The attendant uses the stat block of the squire, but it doesn't have its actions, reactions, or equipment. Choose 3 skills, the attendant has a +5 modifier for this skill, instead of any other modifier. Additionally, it gains a bonus to its ability scores equal to that of the race it appears as. Finally, it knows all the languages you know, and one additional language based on the race they appear as(elven for half elfs, dwarven for dwarves, and so on).

Your attendant acts independently of you, but they always obey your commands. In combat, they roll their own initiative and acts on its own turn. An attendant can’t attack, but they can take other actions as normal.

When the attendant drops to 0 hit points, they disappear, leaving behind no physical form. They reappear after you cast this spell again. While your attendant is within 100 feet of you, you can communicate with them telepathically. Additionally, as an action, you can see through your attendant’s eyes and hear what it hears until the start of your next turn, gaining the benefits of any special senses that the attendant has. During this time, you are deaf and blind with regard to your own senses.

As an action, you can temporarily dismiss your attendant. They disappear into a pocket dimension where they await your summons. As an action, while they are temporarily dismissed, you can cause them to reappear in any unoccupied space within 30 feet of you.

You can’t have more than one attendant at a time. If you cast this spell while you already have an attendant, you instead cause them to adopt a new form. Choose one of the forms from the above list. Your attendant transforms into the chosen humanoid.

Finally, when you cast a spell with a range of touch, your attendant can deliver the spell as if they had cast the spell. Your attendant must be within 100 feet of you, and it must use its reaction to deliver the spell when you cast it. If the spell requires an attack roll, you use your attack modifier for the spell.
