Animate Dead – “You invoke a hungry spirit to possess a recently-dead body and act for you.”
The zombie is limited, but the spirit possessing it is described as “hungry”. This implies the spirit has at least some agency. How would you use that in play, if at all?

The spirit has some unmet need (more ‘instinct’ than thought), and will pursue that hunger if not actively controlled away from it. Constant supervision.
Hungry for the dead, living or braiiins? If GM gets a “hard” move will lurch toward and start gnawing on member of the party with the highest Intelligence.
The zombie will act for you, but only in exchange for food, obviously demanding more/better food for more strenuous tasks. Maybe it won’t do anything other than follow you around unless you feed it first. Or maybe it will do whatever you want, but if you don’t feed it afterwards it will try to kill and eat you.
