Brassica Oleracea Ambulata (abbreviated as BOA) is a miscellaneous spell which creates an animated cabbage to follow the target.

The summoned sentient cabbage will simply follow the target and occasionally perform souls appropriate to its character. If there is a caterpillar in the room it is summoned to, the cabbage will gibber madly and leave in a random direction. They can also be consumed (see related achievements) and zapped with pickling sticks to create coleslaw.
