aka: cour'souvra

The mindtrap or cour'souvra is a small crystal and wire construct. When contacted with the blood and saliva of a person who can channel and activated in the Pit of Doom it gives the holder of the mindtrap complete control of the unlucky person. If the mindtrap is crushed, the person becomes a mindless puppet of the holder (ACoS,Ch25).
