Proposed Canon

First Appearance: TBFGK Epilogue 17

Dolls are animated, non-living units. Some have the appearance of mannequins, but other variants are known, as well. They are created by Dollamancy.

They can have a limited vocabulary. In addition to performing menial tasks such as serving food, they can also be used to fight.


Thinkamancy

A Thinkamancer/Dollamancer caster link can produce "real dolls" with some degree of independent life Hvs.tCF 165 and a g-string connection allowing the Thinkamancer to experience the doll's senses. However, the Great Minds want this to remain secret, and punish Thinkamancers who might reveal it.

A Thinkamancer can spend a full turn's worth of juice to take control of an enemy golem or doll and give it orders, but only for a few seconds at best. This is one of Thinkamancy's secret spells.Hvs.tCF_178

Speculation

A doll seems to be a specific type of golem, although it's not clear what the actual distinction is. To be classified as a "doll", perhaps there is a limit on the size, or the type of materials used.

Real World References

The doll kept by King Slately as a momento of Holly Shortcake is based on the Raggedy Ann doll.
