@TimothyAWiseman That might work in a general sense but my character isn't all that dexterous - he's more likely to shoot himself in the foot.

Rituals are excellent, but they aren't readily available in combat. Call of the Hungry Dead, for example, takes an hour to cast and requires hair from the target. Eyes of the Grave is probably when anticipating a fight with a particular enemy, but it still not useful in a fight itself. Baleful Doll additionally is a difficult roll and is based on Crafts, which my character doesn't know.

Just to be sure I understand: would my character need to use Haunting or is Compel Soul enough? The general idea is sound, but for actual combat we tend to stick to written down rules.

Never did I ask for a complete overhaul of my character, merely if there is a boost I could easily acquire via disciplines. Also, while combat will most likely remain infrequent on the whole, when it does show up it tends to take a lot of time (and it's not fun sitting idly). Given all that your answer is just not very good, even if your intentions were. ;)

Just out of curiosity - can a corpse be prepared and animated in such a fashion that it could follow a character around and not cause too much suspicion in mortals? That WOULD be a good, and disposable, bodyguard. Otherwise, as far as anticipation goes, I'm at the mercy of the story teller.

That's hardly a helpful answer. The party is mainly composed of other, similar characters (intellect over raw strength) and others don't have the same problems. One Tremere can throw objects using telekinesis (or even lift enemies with it, incapacitating them) while the other can conjure up flames, both useful in a fight. Meaning - it IS possible to keep a theme and be useful in a fight. Or definitely should be (unless all the necromancy paths are just bad).
