This creature is a severed body part: a hand, arm, foot, or leg that has been animated with an animate body part spell which has been made permanent with a permanency spell.  If it attacks the character to which it belonged, it receives a +2 bonus to Armor Class.

An animated body part qualifies as a neutral evil improved familiar that can be taken at 3rd level.
