Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Cynocephaly is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality. They are not fond of grease. You can place their vessel near something greasy or near a smear of grease and it will usually settle them. If they are bound to your spirit usually the threat of transmuting them to a vessel for the purpose of putting them near grease is enough to make them calm down. Only use this technique if you feel they are becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.Tags: Cynocephaly, dog head, dog-head, dog-headed
