 Level Adjustment
 Soulless Kittelar as a Cohort
At the DM's optoin, a player attempt to make the Base Creature his/her cohort. This requires a successful Diplomacy Check with a DC of 10 + the Soulless's level. The player attempting to attract the Soulless may choose to reveal a coin or another reflective item in order to decrease the DC by 5+the player's Dexterity Bonus to a minimum decrease of 0. However if there is little or no light when this the reflective item is shown, the decrease to the DC is reduced by 3 (if there is some, but not good source of light present) or 0 (if there is no source of light present).
Once the player has attracted the soulless, he/she must insure that it doesn't stray away. This could be done with a by a successful Use Rope Check if the player has rope or a rope-like substance to tie it around the Soulless's neck. This is considered to be a bind attempt and maybe opposed by an Escape Artist Check at the DM's option. However, the player must come up his/her own way to remedy the problem and a simple solution may not apply to all cases.
After the player has attracted the Soulless and insured it would leave anytime soon, the he/she may now train it.
 Training a Soulless Kittelar
Usually a Soulless Kittelar is not a ideal cohort for it lacks human intelligence despite having a humanoid body and the will to fight so some advanced players may consider this a worty challenge.
To train a Soulless, the player must make a Handle Animal Check to teach it simple tricks, a specific purpose or even teach it somthing more advanced such as speech or how wear armor, weild weapons, ect. Training a soulless weapon and armor proficieny feats requires it to have a base Intelligence Score of 10 or higher.
Training a Soulless anything that would require raising its Intelligence Score or give it feats takes 1d4 Years initially until it has an intelligence score of more than 10. After the Soulless has aqcuired an average intelligence score of 10 to 11, it takes only 1d4 weeks to learn a new subject. Each time its Intelligence score is raised by 2 or points, it the amount of time it takes to learn something is reduce by 1 time increment (months to weeks and weeks to days and days to hours, and so on.)
The DC to teaching a Soulless Kittelar is 20 minus its Intelligence Modifier and the Charisma Modifier of the player teaching it.
