Default Problems with making an Oni Pretender (for Yomi)

Hello everyone, this is my first thread.
After getting this fine game, and playing around with various nations and pretenders, I noticed something that bothered me, The Oni kings nation, has no Oni pretender! Even the Bakemono (MA guys) have a Bakemono pretender, so I thought I would mod in an Oni pretender based off the Dai Oni, in a similar vain to the Niefelheim Son of Niefel/Niefel Jarl similarities.
So I read through the mod manual, and set everything up, I assume the Oni spirit uses #secondtmpshape or whatever that command was? so I made the new pretender and its secondshape, im fairly certain all the numbers were sound, so I load the mod, can select the pretender and everything, start the game, and to test if the Oni Spirit is working correctly I send him into a battle solo and... the game crashes.
I get an error message like.. 'God has no unit com1962 error' or something.
Anyone know a workaround for this? as a quick fix Ive made him #immortal, but that doesnt capture the spirit of the Oni, so, a little help for the modding novice? Thanks in advance!

Does the spirit form have a #firstshape of the original form? Also the command you should be using for the secondary form is #secondshape. If that still doesn't work, it may be that you can't have things in secondshapes out of battle for some reason.

Thanks for the reply.
Firstly, yeah the Oni spirit had #firstshape
Secondly, in the Mod Manual, there are two secondshape commands
#secondshape used for things that change shape when seriously wounded. and
#secondtmpshape used for things that change shape when killed in battle, which is what the Oni do.
Unless anyone can confirm that Oni use #secondshape? or that #secondtmpshape is buggy?

#secondshape is for units that change into a second shape when killed and then remain after battle.

#secondtmpshape is for units that do not remain if the first shape is killed, such as serpent cataphracts.

Use #secondshape for a pretender
