Yea, FajitaDIKU implemented familiars that you could purchase in a shop 
located in the mages guild.  They were basically charmed mobs that 
imporved your max hp and mana.  When they died however, you lost those 
points, plus a few extra, permanently.

A problem dealing with familiars is also how to save them out of the 
game, and the bugs that tend to come with procedures to do that.
