Puppets are generally a confusing topic in Era of the Shinobi. Puppet perks are generally acquired via learning (though not with the learn/teach system) from a shinobi who already knows the art. After learning rookie, the puppeteer may progress on their own to the higher stages (except for human puppetry).
The puppeteer creates a puppet ICly from the usage of either the progress log or the learn/teach log. Both may be used for this purpose. It works a lot like logging for a perk or learning a jutsu and it requires constant daily roleplay to complete. The process is heavily admin dependent. After you complete your puppet ICly a GM should be called to review the creation. NOTE THAT YOU HAVE TO CREATE YOUR OWN PUPPET ICON OR BORROW ONE FROM SOMEONE ELSE. The created puppet is utilized via a jutsu, though it is an IC item and can be destroyed, stolen or given away.
