    Wraiths animating a corpse

    I'm getting ready to run a Wraith game soon for my wife and a friend and I was trying to figure out how to have this one NPC animate a corpse by inhabiting it. I was surprised to find that in Wr20 Puppetry only works on the living and Inhabit seems to indicate it must be machinery (though I may be misreading this). Is there some way a wraith could inhabit a skeleton and have it sit up to taunt a human? I'd rather this not just be a use of Outrage or Phantasm if I can help it.

    Yeah but you have to be careful as the Hierarchy and the Spectres have decreed that a crime against Humanity, punishable by strapping you down and making you watch those films.

    Yeah, that's pretty much my take as well

    I think I'm going to ignore the number of hours since they were deceased part given it's a temporary use anyway I don't see why it should matter how long it has been dead.

    It occurred to me that Puppetry is used to reinhabit your corpse to become a Risen but I get the sense that's a very unique circumstance and not necessarily the rule.
