Dark Servant

From DoomWiki.org

A Dark Servant found on Hub 2: Shadow Wood.

The Dark Servant is an artifact in Hexen. It looks like a small maulotaur doll. When thrown, it can become a maulotaur who will fight for the player. The maulotaur disappears again after a little while. If it lands in a place where there is not enough room for the maulotaur to spawn, the artifact will simply float there, where it can be picked up again.
