A Blood Idol is large fetish statue which stems from several related Polynesian tribes. When the tribe is in danger of being wiped out from an outside threat, the shaman performs a dark ritual over the inanimate form of the Blood Idol. Samples of blood are donated from each member of the village. The blood is poured over the wooden figure, and when the proper spirits are invoked the figure comes to life to hunt down the tribe's enemies. Once animated the Blood Idol will follow it's initial instructions to the letter, and will not stop until all of the offending party are destroyed.
