A poppet is a doll made to represent a person, for casting healing, fertility, or binding spells on that person in folk-magic and witchcraft. These dolls may be fashioned from such materials as a carved root, grain or corn shafts, a fruit, paper, wax, a potato, clay, branches, or cloth stuffed with herbs. The intention is that whatever actions are performed upon the effigy will be transferred to the subject.

Orell Peattie used poppets as part of his knowledge of hexcraft. He used them to kill Irving Thalbro and Nan Wieder, as well as to blind Dana Scully and injure Robert Wieder. (TXF: "Theef")
