Wicker Man

Wicker Men are tall, wooden automatons that mimic the Human form. Necromancers and hedge wizards (and witches and warlocks) craft them from pieces of wood, metal, and sackcloth and animate them with a dark and secret ritual, similar to the creation of Fenbeasts. Wicker Men typically have monstrous heads and are equipped with long, curved blades attached to their hands. Around their necks hang the talismans that give them life. These talismans are usually a maimed creature or damaged body part—a hand will be missing a finger, a cat missing a paw. The missing part goes into the construction of a marionette used to control the Wicker Man. Attacking the talisman or the puppet is the best way of harming this horror; although they look fragile and gangly, the magic that animates them also makes them resistant to harm.[1a]
