And after a while she warms up to you, then somehow either becomes said spirit beast or her mate is?
"Yeah, we've bonded pretty well. Here, take my mating slave I had in life. He constantly barks at me. It's annoying."
I was thinking more along the lines of, since it's a void wolf, as described by Muffinus, it could be her mate was lost into the nether. Then have a solo scenario after a bit where you have to risk your own life to save him, who's being tormented by Orcs/whatever. Then when you do, he tells you he trusts you completely, and wishes to thank you by fighting by your side.
Then it could be like a daily quest like monks have. Visit every day with said wolf out and get a temporary buff, and a small little scene of the two wolves together.
Hell, they could even make it so if you do the daily, there's a chance baby void wolves spawn around her (AKA she had puppies
), allowing everyone a limited amount to pet battle and catch, similar to the Sumprush Rodents in Krasarang.
There's a lot of potential.
