I'm fairly new to servitor creation and taking my time in planning one, there is however one aspect that I get hung up on and that's the dissolution of the servitor. I feel a great deal of responsibility when thinking of creating something that is for all intents and purposes a energetic offspring. As such I find it off putting to simply dissolve the construct after its duty has been fulfilled, even if that duty is years down the road. I'm working from a witchcraft (primarily folk magic) so this is well away form my typical craftings, but I've wondered if the servitor can be "given" in a sense to a deity if they assist in the creation of the servitor.Any perspective and insight is welcome and appreciated, as I said I'm taking my time trying to learn as much as I can before I jump head first so please feel free to give input.
you could do that. But in doing so you would give a piece of your mind, while it was still attached, to the deity in question. If you really like the deity that might not be such a big problem. But it's typically a step most people wouldn't take.
Some other alternatives could be retasking - within the basic theme the being was created for. A sort of thing like setting free, which involves developing the servertor's capabilities until it can exist on its own. Or as I like to do, return the being to my mind in such a way as that I can call it back when I want to.
