After all this discussion about multiple characters, it occurred to
me that RetroMUD already has this.  We call them necromancers.

Necromancers literally build other NPCs they can control and party
with.  It explains why, although the guild is very challenging,
people still play it.  Now we know what's keeping a lot of our
MCSers satisfied -- because we gave them a legitimate way to use

The NPC undead take as much (if not more) to build, so it's really
impressive when someone has a group of three of them led by a
Necromancer.  The catch: undead can't party with "normal" PCs.
