Alignment Variation (Ex)

Soulbound mannequins are at least partially neutral in alignment, although they can also be chaotic, evil, good, or lawful. They have an alignment-dependent spell-like ability usable once per day as listed below.

Disguise Self (Sp)

The soulbound mannequin can only disguise itself as the living person it used to be at approximately the age it was when its soul was used to make the mannequin (this allows it to take the appearance of another creature type).

Soul Focus (Su)

The soul bound to the mannequin lives within a focus integrated into the doll or its apparel, typically a carved mask. As long as this soul focus remains intact, it can be used to animate another mannequin, at the same cost as creating a new soulbound mannequin. The new mannequin retains its personality and memories. A soul focus has hardness 8, 12 hit points, and a break DC of 20.

Susceptible to Mind-Affecting Effects (Ex)

Unlike most constructs, a soulbound mannequin is not immune to mind-affecting effects.
