I should have said, one Spirit is a Chalana Arroy Ghost (Arabella, recently released from her head in a Thanatari temple, looking to make amends for being nasty to people while under control - from a White Dwarf scenario), the other is Yeomar, a Yelmic Ancestor of my shaman (she had a strange genealogy). Both decided to hang around for a while and help out as Followers. As such, do they help now?
