The caster can control the actions of any humanoid that is Medium-size or smaller. The character establishes a telepathic link with the subject’s mind. If a common language is shared, the character can generally force the subject to perform as the character desires, within the limits of his abilities. If no common language is shared, the character can communicate only basic commands, such as "Come here," "Go there," "Fight," and "Stand still." the character knows what the subject is experiencing, but the character does not receive direct sensory input from him.

Obviously self-destructive orders are not carried out. Once control is established, the range at which it can be exercised is unlimited, as long as the character and the subject are on the same plane. The character need not see the subject to control it.
