The awaken spell awakens an animal or plant to the equivalent of human sentience and intelligence. The subject is initially well-disposed toward the caster, but the caster has no direct control over its actions.[1][2]

Awakened creatures often take on personality traits derived from their natural strengths and tendencies.[2]
